HOUSTON, Texas - The Rice University men's track and field program wrapped up competition at the Howie Ryan Invitational on Saturday with a freshman stealing the show.
Multi-athlete Scott Filip, who entered the day in second place in the heptathlon, won his first collegiate event by placing third in the 60m hurdles (8.74), fifth in the pole vault (12-07.5) and fourth in the 1,000m run (3:03.69). Filip (5045 points) won going away, defeating Houston's Christopher Morales (4771-2nd) and Texas State's Aaron George (4654-3rd).
"Scott started his multi career at Rice in a stupendous way, setting a new school freshman record," Rice men's T&F head coach Jon Warren said. "Considering who has preceded him, All-Americans Phil Adam and Clayton Chaney, that is an exciting beginning. Overall the meet went pretty well and we had good results in a few events."
Brothers, William and Travis Roberts each ran well in their respective distance events. William finished 11th in the mile run (4:17.20) and 12th in the 800m run (1:57.85) while Travis placed ninth in the 3,000m run (8:55.88) and 12th in the mile with a time of 4:19.44.
Rice travels to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to compete in the New Mexico Collegiate Challenge slated Feb. 7-8. Following the meet, Owls will participate in one final tune-up meet at the Texas A&M Invitational on Feb. 15 before the C-USA Championship Feb. 28-March 1 in Birmingham, Ala.
