PISCATAWAY, N.J.- On a breezy day at the Bauer Track & Field Complex, the Connecticut men and Notre Dame women took the lead at the 2013 BIG EAST Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Connecticut leads the men's field with 62.5 points and Notre Dame leads the women with 43 points.


The Huskies lead the field by 5.5 points thanks in part to a loaded decathlon field with Jesse Chapman, Ben Waruch and Jake Waruch all finishing in scoring position. Eric Masington also took second in the shot put with a toss of 17.38m. Four Huskies finished in scoring position in the javelin, including Brian Eilers (4th, 58.35m), Adam Boucher (5th, 58.31m), Cody Unger (6th, 57.76m) and Sam Smith (7th, 57.65m).


Louisville is 5.5 points off the leader with 57 points. The Cardinals totaled 23 points in the shot put, including a win from Brad Vivace with a throw of 17.53m. Steve Wade took third, Isaac Bowling came in fifth and hammer throw champion Sam Bombaugh finished sixth.


On the women's side, Notre Dame leads by 3.25 points over Connecticut. Alexa Aragon led the Fighting Irish with a win in the 3,000m steeplechase in 10:11.07. Carly Loeffel came in second in the heptathlon with 5,411 points. Madeline Casanova (5th, 55.43m) and Vivien Devaney (6th, 53.72m) picked up seven points in the hammer throw on Friday and Emily Morris took third in the shot put for six points with a throw of 15.21m.


Connecticut's Victoria Flowers won the shot put on Saturday for her second 2013 BIG EAST Outdoor Track Championship win with a mark of 16.28m. The senior has tallied more than half of the Huskies' 39.75 points by herself. On Friday Flowers won the hammer throw by more than seven meters with a mark of 64.40, a BIG EAST championship record. Louisville's Jere' Summers was the last to win the hammer throw and shot put in the same BIG EAST championship in 2009.
