The CCRI Knights indoor track team traveled to Boston, MA to compete in the Boston University Valentine Invitational.  This will be the final regular season meet for the CCRI Indoor track team as they will not be attending the USTAF New England Meet that was originally on their schedule.  Once again Bobby Allen (Cranston, RI) established a new CCRI Record in the 3,000 meter run.       

 Bobby Allen placed 39th in a very strong collegiate field and set a school record of 8 minutes 29.27 seconds in the 3,000 meter run this bested his previous mark set at the Harvard Open of 8:43.55 in December. Anthony Cox (Brooklyn, NY) ran a season-best in the 200m dash placing 90th in a time of 23.23 seconds. Marciano Brunette (Narragansett, RI) placed 145th in the 400m dash in a time of 54.09 seconds. Sophomore Isaiah Hector (Warwick, RI) placed 43rd in the 500m dash in a time of 1:11.55. This meet ends the regular season with only Bobby Allen advancing to the NJCAA Championship March second and third at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL.
