Men's Indoor Track Opens Season With Strong Performances
January 22, 2009
SUSQUEHANNA, Pa.-- While the CUA men's indoor track team did not travel with a full squad to Susquehanna, the team used its opening meet as a time trial and gauge for the upcoming season. Overall, head coach Mark Robinson was happy with the results and is looking forward to a strong year.
With only a partial team in attendance for the first meet, Coach Robinson asked many athletes to compete in multiple events and to use the meet as a gauge to see where extra work was needed and as a practice session. With three other Landmark teams in attendance, along with several Division II institutions, the meet was a strong indicator of strengths and weaknesses.
Steve Prieur (Herndon, Va./Oakton) set a personal best in the shot, with a throw of 11.87 meters (38'-11.50''). Andrew Holdt opened his collegiate career with a strong high jump performance, clearing 1.71 meters (5'-7.25''). Andrew Smith (Arlington, Tenn./Bolton) and Mike Doster both finished strong in their respective events, the 5000m run and the 55m high hurdles.
CUA will return to action with its full compliment of competitors when the Cardinals travel to Annville, Pennsylvania to compete on January 31st at the Lebanon Valley College Invitational.
