J.Fred Duckett Twilight Results

Houston - The Rice Owls men's track and field squad performed exceptionally well at the ninth annual J.Fred Duckett Twilight Meet held at Holloway Field/Ley Track Saturday night on the Rice campus.

The Owls went 1-2-3 in the 3000m steeplechase. James Llamas led the way with a season-fast time 9:04.93, freshman Will Firth, who was second, also ran a season-best time of 9:13.28. Placing third was Travis Roberts at 9:25.22.

In the 5000m, John Cavallo won the event by setting a new personal standard by 20 seconds. Cavallo posted a winning-time of 14:27.93. Dan Sloat, in the 800m, was second with a time of 1:51.07. Sammy Abuhamra led the Owls in the 1500m with an eighth-place and season-fast time of 3:54.60.

In the throws, Alexander Zinchenko placed in the top six in two events. Zichenko was fourth in the shot put (16.52m/54-2.5) and sixth in the discus (45.87m/150-6). Placing eighth in the hammer throw was Nick Williams at 47.57m/156-1.

Collin Shurbet was third (52.13) in the 400m hurdles, while Lee Johnson was sixth at 53.10. Jack Spinks was fourth and Tyler Wiest was fifth in the high jump as the duo posted identical season-high marks of 2.01m/6-7.

Freshman Chris Pillow won the pole vault event with a mark of 4.86m/15-11.25, while Alec Hsu came in fourth at 4.41m/14-5.5.

Clayton Chaney was the only competitor, out of five that started, to complete the weekend's decathlon event. Chaney accumulated 6,631 points, which is a team season-high total.

"This was a great meet for us," commented Rice head coach Jon Warren. "John Cavallo with a p.r. (personal record) by 20 seconds in winning the 5k. Twenty seconds is huge and we had a great steeple performance in running one, two, and three. Those were probably the two best events we had today. But, Collin Shurbet ran a p.r. in the 400m hurdles and Lee Johnson had a big a p.r. too in the 400m hurdles. I also thought our two high jumpers (Jack Spinks and Tyler Wiest) performed very well. We just had a real solid performance in a lot off different areas today."
