Liam Boylan-Pett — who enthusiastically anchored Columbia to a 4×800-meter Championship of America victory at the Penn Relays a few years ago — ran in the fastest Falmouth Men’s Mile ever on Saturday. Ten of the 11 runners — Boylan-Pett included (3:58.19) — broke four minutes while the top four finishers each broke the previous record. Jordan McNamara was the winner in 3:54.89 followed closely by Jeff See, A.J. Acosta and Adrian Blincoe.
Sunday’s Falmouth Road Race, the seven-mile jaunt, had some strong Ivy showings as Dartmouth graduate Ben True was sixth (32:48) and Cornellian Zac Hine 23rd (33:42), both off the pace of the 2011 champion Lucas Rotich. The 27-year-old Kenyan won in 31:37. On the women’s side, Brown senior Ari Garber was 40th in 42:51.
