ARMSTEAD SETS SCHOOL RECORD IN TRIPLE JUMP AT HUSKY CLASSIC

ARMSTEAD SETS SCHOOL RECORD IN TRIPLE JUMP AT HUSKY CLASSIC

SEATTLE — A school record and three other school top 10 marks highlighted the day for Sacramento State during the second day of the Husky Classic on the University of Washington campus.

The Hornets will compete at the UW Open on Sunday at the same facility before heading to the Big Sky Championships in Pocatello, Idaho in two weeks.

Men's Field Notes

• Junior Darius Armstead set the school record and finished first in the men's triple jump. Armstead uncorked a jump of 49-07.00 on his first attempt of the day which was 7.5 inches better than his season best. The mark also moved him to a tie atop the Big Sky standings this season and broke Ron Scurlock's school record of 49-05.50 which was set in 1998. In fact, only Joe Radan's high jump mark which came in 1979 had stood longer than Scurlock's record in the triple jump.

• Sacramento State had four top 10 finishes in the triple jump as Jah Strange placed fourth (48-10.75), Gathunga Ndirangu was seventh (46-04.00) and Mohamed Abdullah finished 10th (45-07.75).

• Three Hornets finished among the top 10 in the long jump. The group was led by Cory Barger who finished in fourth place with a best of 23-02.50.

Men's Track Notes

• Freshman Alec Foster improved on his career best in the 400 but remained in sixth place in school history. Foster finished seventh in the highly competitive Husky Classic with a time of 48.29.

• The men's 4x400 relay team of Adam Huynh, Eric Adorno, Michael Turner and Foster finished third after running 3:15.22 and moved into sixth place in school history. Their time is the fastest in the Big Sky this season by 1.49 seconds.

Adam Huynh tied his season best and Andrew Stich set a career best in the 400 and Chris Ilio recorded his fastest time in the 60.

Women's Field

Jelaia Jones recorded a career long in the shot put and improved on her mark which ranks seventh in school history. Jones had a put of 46-03.50 to finish in the 12th place in the meet and now ranks seventh in the Big Sky this year.
