ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Navy men's track and field program will resume its 2012-13 indoor season on Sunday at Princeton. Navy and Princeton will meet in their annual dual meet at 11:00 AM at Princeton's Jadwin Gymnasium. Live results will be available.
The weight throw will begin at 11:00 AM and the first running event will be the 5,000m run at 1:00 PM. Three individuals can be entered per team for each event and scoring will be 5-3-2-1 (Relays: 5-3).
Princeton defeated Navy, 107-71, at Wesley Brown Field House in Annapolis last year to take a 21-20 lead in the all-time series. Sunday's dual will be the 42nd meeting in the past 55 years between the two schools.
Senior Joshua Shaw won the 500m dash at the 2012 Navy-Princeton dual with a time of 1:05.14. Senior Christopher Galvin took first place in the 5,000m run at 14:36.08.
Sunday's dual will be the second competition for Navy this season. The Mids hosted the non-team scored Navy Invitational on December 1, winning two events and posting five IC4A Championship qualifying performances.
Freshman Jaie Maness won the pole vault in his collegiate debut, clearing 16-2¾ (4.95m) to lead a Navy group that placed 1-6 in the pole vault. Maness was named the Patriot League Rookie of the Week for his efforts.
Navy also won the 4x400m relay at the Navy Invitational at 3:17.58. Junior Jeremy Cadiente, Shaw, freshman Austin Batiste and senior Kolton Kempel teamed up for the victory. Junior Zack Duncavage posted a personal record in the weight throw of 61-0¾ (18.61m) to place second.
Navy will next host American, Mount St. Mary's and VCU in a four-team meet on January 12 at the Wesley Brown Field House.
