4/3/2015 11:04 PM This past Saturday, the Jumbos braved the frigid conditions and competed in the Tufts Snowflake Classic. Considering that this was the first and only home meet of the season, the squad was eager to post some nice marks even considering the weather.

Due to the snow and the freezing temperatures, the jumpers competed indoors at the Gantcher facility. The throwers and the track athletes were not so lucky, as their events were held outside at the Dussault track. True to its name, snow fell steadily throughout the day for the entirety of our Snowflake Classic.

The meet began with the 10,000m. The highlight of the event came from the performance of senior Colin McCrory who won the race in a time of 31:58.44. Though McCrory ran exceptiona...
