CAMBRIDGE - Senior Stefan Duvivier had his best high jump of the season and sophomore Kevin Quisumbing was strong in the throws as the Tufts men's indoor track & field team competed at the Gordon Kelly Invitational hosted by MIT on Saturday.

Tufts' record-holder both indoors and outdoors, Duvivier continues to work his way into form this season and won the high jump today with a 6-8 (2.03m) best. It's #17 in the Division III national rankings as of 8 p.m. Saturday night. His previous high of the year had been 6-6 (1.98m). 

Quisumbing won the shot put at MIT with a 47-3 1/2 (14.41m) and then hit a team season-best and personal best with a 49-4 1/4 (15.04m) in the weight throw for third place. He was more than two feet better than his previous career-best of 47-5 (14.34m) in the weight.

Also winning for Tufts on Saturday was freshman Dalton Tanner in the 3,000 meters with a 9:01.68 time. He was 15 seconds ahead of the rest of the field.

A pair of Jumbo runner-up efforts were a 21-0 (6.21m) long jump by freshman Matthew Manteiga and a 1:26.94 in the 600 meters by senior Chris Gregory.

Also in the shot put, sophomore Christian Trebisacci heaved a PR of 42-0 3/4 (12.82m). Freshman Avery Barnes had a season-best 8.80 in the 60-meter hurdles for fourth place and was third in the triple jump by tying his season-best of 41-6 3/4 (12.67m).
