PRINCETON, NJ - Andrew Carey finished second overall in the mile run, while teammate Alex Jebb placed sixth in the triple jump to lead the Johns Hopkins men's track & field team at the Princeton New Year's Invitational Sunday afternoon.
Carey finished the mile run in 4:22.10, trailing one second behind volunteer assistant coach Tyler Saunders (4:21.02). Carey's result is the fourth fastest time among Division III athletes this season, and the third fastest time in school history.

Ben Press and Wes Butler had strong showings in the 1,000 meter run, finishing third and fourth, respectively, with times of 2:34.61 and 2:35.15. The marks are the second and third fastest times in Hopkins history.
