The Indoor Track team ran to several successful finishes during the 2013 season at several venues around the area such as Lehigh University, Haverford College and The Glen Mills School. The team was lead by their only senior, Tom Seykora, who qualified for The Meet of Champions in the 3000 meter run. His qualifying time of 9:13 ranked in the top 50 in Pennsylvania and 5th among small schools. Tom also lead two separate relays to top 10 finishes.
Tom’s relay efforts were also supported by Juniors Jack Roth, James O’Shea, and Lucas Watson. All three runners ran multiple personal bests in events such as the 800 meters, mile run and 3000 meters. On February 2nd at The Glen Mills School, the 4 x 200 meter relay (composed of juniors Eric Toddy, Jefferson Toro and Mike Lawrence and freshman Dave Bowdler) ran the fastest time for a Devon team in over two years.
Bowdler is a part of a solid group of freshmen that won several medals throughout the season. On January 12th at Haverford College the Distance Medley Relay (Bowdler, Watson with freshman Vince Finley and Matt Kelly) finished forth in a race with over 20 teams (most of them being large schools). On February 6th at The Novice Championships all five freshmen won medals (Mike Nicolas in the 800 meters, Kelly in the 1600 meters, Bowdler in the 200m, Finley in the 400 meters and Anthony Walker in the Shot Put).
Walker was not the only thrower to represent the Tide well throughout the season. His older brother, Joe Walker, a sophomore, set a personal best at Haverford College on January 12th. Juniors Mike Horbowy and Sean Bevan provided leadership for a strong corps that return everyone for next season.
