The Babson College track & field teams will send seven individuals to the University at Albany Purple and Gold Last Chance Meet on Saturday afternoon as they prepare for the upcoming ECAC Championships. The Beavers will open the meet with the field events at 1 p.m., followed by the track events at 4 p.m.

The Green and White will compete at the University at Albany for the first time on Saturday.

Babson is coming off one of its best performances in program history last weekend at the NCAA New England Championships, as it set a trio of school records and had six individuals earn all-region honors. Senior Marina Capalbo, the lone female set to compete this weekend, broke her own school records in both the 800 and 1500 meters, coming in fourth in both events. First-year John Decker broke his own school mark in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:54.16, while junior Dominic Esposito broke his own school record and became the first in program history to earn All-New England accolades in the decathlon. Senior Mark Gulesian finished seventh in the 1500-meter run and teamed up with Decker, Esposito and sophomore JD Greenfield to set a new school record for the second event in row in the 4x400-meter relay.

Capalbo, a two-time national championship qualifier, posted the ninth fastest time in Division III (4:31.95) in the 1500-meter run last Saturday…Esposito's total of 6,159 points in the decathlon is good for the 18th-best total this season among Division III competitors.
