Field Events Lead Strong Performances At Terrier Classic
Jan. 28, 2006
Boston, Mass. - The Bulldogs continued their upward progression with four top-15 all-time performances in school history as they concluded competition Friday at Boston University's Terrier Classic.
The field events were strongest with Jihad Beauchman tying for second in the high jump (2.03m). Samuel Fox was fifth with a jump of 1.98m. John Langhauser continued to improve upon his personal record and fifth best mark in school history in the shot put with a distance of 16.57m, good enough for second.
Kevin Alexander took third in the 400-meter dash (48.13), moving him up to fourth on the all-time list. This put him just ahead on the list of current teammate Rob deLaski, who ran 48.31 in 2004. The 4x400-meter relay team of Alexander, Shomari Taylor, Beauchman, and deLaski placed 6th with 3:14.33. This is the third best all-time just ahead of almost the same team at the same meet in 2005 (3:14.34 with Michael Brown instead of Beauchman). Dan O'Brien was third in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 7.70.
Patrick Dantzer placed tenth in the 5000-meter run (14:20.51) amidst a strong field. This time is the fourth best time in school history, just ahead of Gregory Bonaiuto (14:26.23 in 1988).
