BOSTON, Mass, – Junior captain David Marthy shattered his own school record in the 1,000-meter run with an IC4A qualifying time, leading the Marist College men’s track team Saturday at the Terrier Invitational at Boston University. Marthy placed 12th overall and finished in 2:26.50, eclipsing his 2013 school-record time of 2:28.31 by nearly two seconds. Marthy’s stellar performance highlighted a day of personal-best marks and strong races for the Red Foxes.

In the 500-meter dash, Matt Edwards ran the fastest freshman time in school history in the event, placing 26th in 1:05.68. The time was less than a half-second off the IC4A qualifying mark of 1:05.20 in the event, and was a personal-best time by more than two seconds.

In the 5,000-meter run, junior Mark Valentino shattered his previous personal-best time by nearly 15 seconds, placing 38th in 15:08.27.

In the 3,000-meter run, sophomore Johnny Lee improved on his previous best by seven seconds with his personal-best time of 8:45.78.

Other personal-best times were recorded by freshman Kyle Heubner and sophomore Zach Berzal (800-meter run); junior Bryan Buttigieg (1,000-meter run); freshman Zach Toner (mile run).

The Red Foxes return to action on Friday at the Metropolitan Championships at the Armory Track and Field Center in New York.
