Jensen '15 earns weekly men's track award
Joe Jensen ’15 (West Windsor, N.J./West Windsor-Plainsboro HS North) of the Hamilton College men’s indoor track & field team has been named Track Athlete of the Week by the New York State Collegiate Track Conference (NYSCTC).
The award is Jensen's third this season and second in three weeks. He won two events at Saturday’s SUNY Brockport Golden Eagle Invitational, setting meet records in both the 200- and 400-meter dashes and meeting the ECAC Division III championship qualifying standard in both events.
Jensen's 200-meter time of 22.49 was 0.1 seconds off his own school record and he missed tying his school mark in the 400 by 0.32 seconds with a time of 49.40. Jensen also posted the meet’s top performance in the 60-meter dash, running a 7.17 in the preliminary heats (0.04 seconds short of his school record). He ranks sixth nationally in the 400 meters and 13th in the 200.
Jensen and the Hamilton track & field teams host an invitational on Saturday, Feb. 15, at 11 a.m.
