Four Buccaneer athletes placed first to highlight the weekend with the men's team placing second and the women's team placing fourth overall. On the men's side, Buccaneer junior David Haefner (Hamburg, N.Y.) placed first in the 1500 meters with a time of 3:57.25, while teammate Brad Yewer (Newbury, England) finished first in the 800 meters with a time of 1:54.52.
