Texas Relays Results
Austin - Rice Owl thrower Alex Zinchenko placed fourth in the shot put and the Owls' 4x1500m relay squad finished fifth at the 85th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays at Mike A. Myers Stadium on Friday.
Zinchenko posted a mark of 16.51m/54-2 in placing fourth. The 4x1500m squad of William Firth, Sammy Abuhamra, John Cavallo, and Travis Roberts ran a time of 16:02.01 to finish fifth.
"We had a much better day today with respectable performances in both the shot put and the 4 x 1500 relay," stated head coach Jon Warren. "The marks were not what I had hoped for, but in bot competitions the guys did what they needed to for them to be in the hunt for decent places."
The Texas Relays wrap up action on Saturday.
