Lincoln, Neb. - The Rice men's track and field squad performed quite well on Saturday at Nebraska's Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational.
"The team that traveled this weekend, almost to a man, had either a personal best, a season best, a top C-USA mark or all three," commented a pleased Jon Warren, Rice's head coach. "Starting with the heptathlon, where both Sam McGuffie and Chris Sanders set great first time marks, to the 4x400m relay, to the middle distance and distance races, we competed well and earned some top places in the meet. Even the few guys that did not set that elusive personal best had positive days."
Season bests were set on Saturday in the heptathlon by Sam McGuffie and Chris Sanders, Tyler Wiest in the high jump (1.94m/6-4.25), the 4x400m relay with a time of 3:18.35, Dan Sloat in the 800m (1:52.63), the mile by John Cavallo (4:17.19), and the 3000m by William Firth (8:25.61) and Michael Trejo (8:30.81).
Says Warren, "It was another solid showing for us and I can't wait to get to Texas A&M next week."
Rice competes at the Texas A&M Invitational on Sat., Feb. 11. Action gets underway at 2 p.m. in College Station, Texas.
