Regional Qualifiers Lead SLU Men At T-F Invitational

Kevin Danaher and Noah Garfield both won events with Atlantic Region Track and Field Confernce Championship qualifying marks to lead the St. Lawrence University men's indoor track and field team to second place at the Saints Holiday Relays at Newell Field House on Saturday afternoon. Danaher won the weight throw with a toss of 15.40 meters, improving on his personal-best performance in the event by 77 centimeters and beating the field by more than three meters. He added a second-place finish in the shot put with another personal-best mark of 14.45 meters, which was also a regional qualifier. Garfield won the high jump with a leap of 1.94 meters, matching his personal best from last season to qualify for regionals. He also posted a PR in the 60-meter hurdles, finishing in 8.90 seconds to break nine seconds for the first time to finish second. Plattsburgh State won the meet with 176 points, with St. Lawrence just nine points behind. The University of Ottawa was third with 51 points. Zachary Meredith of the Ottawa Lions broke a facility record in the 600 with a time of 1:25.41. "We had a very good season opener today highlighted by a few very strong individual performances and a scintillating 4x200 relay race. We are really pleased with the work the team has put in during the fall and the Holiday Relays provides us a great benchmark going into the holiday break. Kevin put up very solid marks in each of the throws to earn regional qualifying in both along with Noah in the high jump," said Head Coach Jon Newman St. Lawrence Event Winners Kevin Danaher - Weight throw (15.40 meters) Noah Garfield - High jump (1.94 meters) Miles Wilson - 4x200 relay (1:34.23) Elijah Wickland Shearer 4x200 relay Remi LeBlanc - 4x200 relay Michael Corbitt - 4x200 relay
