school-record effort of 10:21.64 set in 2008. Coleman also gave
Wesleyan points at NESCACs with his sixth-place performance in the 800m
Moody pointed in two events for the Cardinals, accounting for seven of
the squad's 19 points. His 183-6 toss in the javelin gave him fourth
place while his 153-4 hammer throw was good enough for seventh. Jack
Pacelle '13 also picked up Wesleyan points in two events as he placed
sixth in the 400m (:50.49) while anchoring the 4x100m relay to 8th
place. Also on that squad were Andre Lima '13, Immanuel Lokwei '12 and
