Chris Pillow and Alex Zinchenko turned in strong performances to lead the men's indoor track team at the Howie Ryan Invitational at Houston's Athletics/Alumni Center.
"Chris winning the pole vault was a wonderful accomplishment," said Rice head coach Jon Warren. "We continued to see improvement in many areas of our team this week."
Pillow posted a personal best of 5.30/17-4.50 in the pole vault, to win the event. He improved upon his previous best by 20 centimeters, and prevailed over the loaded pole vault field. His mark of 5.30 is the highest in C-USA this season.
Zinchenko was second for the second consecutive week, throwing a season-best 54-6.5 in the shot put. His mark ranks fifth in C-USA.
Filip Drozdowski ran a 8.35 to qualify in 8th position for the 60 m hurdle final, where he ran an 8.53.
Clayton Chaney jumped 6.81 m in the long jump, which was ninth in the meet and eighth among collegians.
James llamas won his heat in the one mile run, running a season-best 4:20.37. Llamas nearly led the race wire-to-wire, and finished 5th overall in the event.
