BOSTON, Mass. - The Amherst men's indoor track and field's distance medley relay team competed at the Tufts Last Chance Meet Thursday at the Gantcher Center and qualified for the NCAA Division III Championships.

The meet is an added opportunity for competitors to either record or improve upon NCAA qualifying marks. There were 38 total events between the men's and women's teams.

The Jeffs distance medley 'A' team of Romey Sklar '15, Matt Melton '14, Brent Harrison '16 and Greg Turisini '15 placed third overall behind Bates' 'A' team and the 'A' team from Buffalo State. The Jeffs' DMR team finished in 10:01.04 on the flat track, which is converted to 9:52.99, good for a NCAA qualifying mark. 

Amherst returns to the track tomorrow, Mar. 7 for the two-day ECAC Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center.
