Houston - Rice thrower Alex Zinchenko won the discus event Saturday, the final day of action of the TSU Relays, hosted by Texas Southern.
Zinchenko had a first-place distance of 50.95m/167-2. Houston Baptist's Jarrett Gilliam followed Zinchenko with a mark of 45.06m/147-10.
Tyler Wiest was second in the high jump with a strong effort of 2.00m/6-6.75.
"This has been a great weekend for Rice track," commented Rice head coach Jon Warren. "With collegiate victories in the discus, javelin, and 1500 and great places in the hammer, 400 hurdles and the 4x400 relay, it was a very pleasing couple of days.
"Alex Zinchenko's entire series in the discus was good, Travis Roberts ran a smart 1500m race with a good kick for a personal best, Collin (Shurbet) had the best 400 hurdles and 4x400 for a first meet, ever. We had a lot of good things happen this weekend."
The Owls will stay at home next Friday and Saturday (March 23-24) as they host the Victor Lopez Classic at Holloway Field/Ley Track
