Rice's men's track team picked up several event wins to highlight a strong performance at the J. Fred Duckett Twilight. Alex Zinchenko picked up two event wins in the shot put and discus.
"Overall, it was really good," said Rice Head Coach Jon Warren. "I was impressed with our sprinters and with our field event people. They got it together, and did what they had to do this week."
Zinchenko set a season-best with a 16.88 m throw in the shot put to win the event, then threw 51.19 m in the discus to pick up another win.
Chris Pillow won the pole vault, continuing his strong season with a clearance of 5.05 m.
