“We had another solid day,” UConn head coach Greg Roy said, “The throwers continued their winning ways with Matt’s win in the discus. Most of the kids on the track ran out of their specialty with the exception being Randall Wall, who opened very fast in the hurdles. Multi event athletes were all over the Track and Field. Pat Meyer is looking particularly sharp. All in all, a fine competition to augment a great week of training.”
Senior Matthew Graziano continued UConn’s success in the throwing events by winning the discus with a 51.94m toss. He joined junior Kevin Foster and freshman Cameron Thompson, who each brought home a first-place title on Friday.
Senior Randall finished third in the 110m hurdles (14.53) and fourth in the 400m hurdles (58.03).
Senior Patrick Meyer set two personal bests out of the three events he competed in at the Black and Gold Challenge. Meyer set a new personal record 13.59m mark in the shot put and a 39.79m mark in the discus. He also ran an 11.30 time in the 100m dash.
The Huskies are back in action on Saturday, March 25 at the UPENN Challenge in Philadelphia.
