WESTFIELD, Mass. – Junior Sean Enos threw a personal-best 194-02 in the hammer throw to lead Bates College men's track and field at day two of the Open New England Championships at Westfield State University on Friday.

Enos (Lynnfield, Mass.) moved into third place on Bates' all-time list on the event, just behind Chris Murtagh '11 (197-02) and one spot ahead of Rich McNeil '10 (193-07). The St. John's Prep product scored all five of Bates' points on the first day of the meet with a fourth-place finish in the hammer.

Senior Jarret McKallagat (Atkinson, N.H,) ran a 14.81 in the 110-meter hurdle trials in a slight headwind, coming in 10th place – just two spots shy of qualifying for the finals.

First-year Colin Kraft (Northborough, Mass.) posted an 11.19 in the 100 meter trials for 14th place and recorded a time of 22.35 in the 200 meter trials to come in a tie for 13th place.

After two days of competition at the championships, Bates sits in 18th out of 25 scoring teams.
