PRINCETON, N.J.—Sophomore middle distance runner Jesse Garn, who qualified for the NCAA East Regional Outdoor Track Meet last year in the 800, has put himself in excellent shape to return this season in the 1,500. This past weekend, he clocked a third-place time of 3:45.67 at the Princeton/Larry Ellis Invitational, which ranks No. 27 in this season’s East Region Top Performance List.
At the conclusion of the conference meets, the top 48 performances in each event advance to the East Regional Meet, which will hosted by North Carolina A&T May 23-25. From that meet, the top 12 finishers in the finals will advance to the NCAA Championships, which take place June 5-8 in Eugene, Ore. Last year, Garn advanced to the finals in the 800 at the East Regional Meet.
