San Marcos, Texas - The Rice men's track and field squad turned in several remarkable performances at the Texas State Invitational on Friday.
For starters, John Cavallo and Gabe Cuadra placed first and second respectively in the 5000m. Cavallo crossed the finish line with a winning time of 14:49.52, while Cuadra followed closely at 14:53.23.
"We had a very solid day," stated Owl head coach Jon Warren. "In the 5000 John Cavallo and Gabe Cuadra went 1-2 with each doing what I think is their second best time for each of them. It is more impressive that they did all the work with each one doing the leading. We had some solid racing come out of the 1500. The races were very tactical and rough and both Sammy Abuhamra and Mike Troop handled it well in placing third and ninth respectively.
"In addition, Alex Zinchenko put together a nice series in the discus with another top three finish to his record. Nick Williams, in the hammer, continued his streak of personal bests getting yet another two today."
In the decathlon, freshman Chris Sanders sits in first place after the first five events with 3,421 points. He was second in the 100m (11.63; 725 points), first in the long jump (6.53m; 704 points), and first in the high jump (1.98m/6-6; 785 points).
Texas State Invitational action concludes on Saturday.
