The men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams were a force at the Empire 8 Championships in January, with both winning their third straight conference titles.

The women Bombers scored 239 points—more than the five other teams combined.

The men’s squad won six of the 15 events.

Kyle Devins ’11, who placed first in both the long jump (tying the Ithaca record of 7.20 meters) and triple jump, was named Field Athlete of the Meet.

Jeff Wetmore ’11 set a new Ithaca record of 22.63 seconds in the 200 meter and was awarded Track Athlete of the Meet.

“Being part of a team like this is what every athlete hopes for,” says Devins. “We have so many great athletes that we push each other at practice and keep improving.”

Both teams then went on to win the ECAC title, a first ever for the men, who bested a field of 49 teams. The women were first of 43 teams, and finished 16th of 61 at nationals.
