At the UAA championships hosted by NYU, two Brandeis runners took home titles while two others finished as runners-up. Both the men’s and women’s squad finished in seventh place.
Chris Brown ’12 and Kate Warwick ’12 ranked top among all UAA runners. They entered in the top five of Division III going into the championship meet for the mile run and 5,000-meter run respectively, each claiming their first conference titles.

Brown won the mile run with a time of 4:15.38, nearly three seconds faster than NYU’s Matt Turlip. Warwick won the 5,000-meter title with a time of 9:57.86.

On the men’s side, Vincent Asante ’14 finished in second place in the 60-meter dash with a time of 7.09 seconds, just .09 seconds behind NYU rookie Jonathan Simon, to claim all-UAA honors. Alex Kramer ’13 earned his second all-UAA honor with a time of 8:32.56 in the 3,000-meter race. Additionally, Jeffrey Maser ’15 also had a strong outing in the high jump with a height of 1.9 meters (6’ 2.75”).

On the women’s side, Lily Parenteau ’12 finished fourth in the high jump with a height of 1.6 meters (5’ 3”), just two inches away from a top-three finish.

Brandeis will return to NYU again on March 2 for the ECAC championships, which will be the last chance for individuals to qualify for the NCAA championships the following week.
