All-East Accolades for 4x400-Meter Relay Squad

Seventh Place at IC4A Championships

BOSTON – The members of the Bulldogs' 4x400-meter relay team were afforded All-East honors for their seventh-place effort at the Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America (IC4A) Championships today at Boston University. The title is granted to the top eight finishers in each event.

The team of senior Matthew Bieszard and freshmen William Rowe, Mario Kranjac and Dylan Hurley performed best when it mattered most. After knocking five seconds off of their previous PR and running the fourth-fastest indoor time in Yale history in prelims yesterday (3:14.06), they posted a time of 3:14.93 in today's final.

The Elis will kick off their outdoor season at the Anteater Invitational in Irvine, Calif. on March 16-17.
