Clayton Chaney broke his own school record in the heptathlon by 270 points to lead a strong weekend for the men's track team, who competed in Flagstaff, Ariz. and Notre Dame, Ind.
"I am very pleased with both groups' performances this weekend," said Rice Head Coach Jon Warren. "The sprinters and field athletes had good performances in Flagstaff, while the distance runners had a good outing at Notre Dame."
Chaney posted the 7th-best Heptathlon score in the nation with a 5600 in the event at the Mountain T's Invitational in Flagstaff, Ariz., winning the event over teammate Chris Sanders. Chaney won four of the seven events in the heptathlon, and finished second in the other three events. His heptathlon included personal bests in the 60 m (6.92), 60 m hurdles (8.06) and the pole vault (4.35 m).
Alex Zinchenko finished in second place at the Mountain T's Invitational in the shot put for the fourth straight week, throwing a season-best 17.08 m, the fourth-longest mark in C-USA this season.
Chris Pillow tied for third and had the second-highest mark for a collegian in the pole vault, clearing 5.22 meters, marking the second straight week he has cleared 5.20 meters in the pole vault.
