Men's Track and Field Posts Four Season-Leading Performances, Two IC4A Qualifications at the JMU Invitational

HARRISONBURG, VA - The William and Mary men's track and field team had four season-best performances Saturday at the JMU Invitational, and won seven events in the three-team meet. The Tribe also picked up two IC4A qualifications on the day, one month away from the IC4A Championships.

Complete Results

The first of the two IC4A marks came in the javelin, where sophomore Brandon Heroux (Westfield, N.J.) threw and easy 209-4 (63.82 meters) for the win and the qualifying mark. Senior Doug Zimmer (McLean, Va.) was third with a throw of 146-11 (44.78m), improving his career-best in the event by more than 15 feet after a two-year hiatus from throwing. Senior Alex Ball (Winchester, Va.) made his first-ever showing in the javelin, taking fourth with a toss of 132-8 (40.44m).

Hammer Throw
Junior Zach Jordan (Dublin, Ohio) had the other IC4A-mark, requalifying in the hammer yet again with a winning throw of 173-9 (52.95m). Ball was fourth in the hammer, at 156-2 (47.61m).

110m and 400m Hurdles
Junior Chris McIntosh (Owings Mill, Md.) was the day's only double-winner, first in his career-debut at the 110m hurdles with a time of 15.38 seconds. He would come back later in the afternoon to claim gold again in the 400m hurdles, clearing the course in 56.67 seconds.

Long Jump
Zimmer also made an appearance in the long jump, winning the event with a leap of 20-4.25 (6.20m).

Triple Jump
Sophomore Roman Dent (Brentwood, Tenn.) won the triple jump with a mark at 43-10.75 (13.38m), made all the more notable because it was the first triple jump by a Tribe athlete since the 2003 IC4A Outdoor Championships.

1,500m Run
Freshman Zach Tennant (Fairview, W.Va.) grabbed the final win of the day for W&M in the 1,500m, running 4:02.96 in his collegiate debut at the distance.

Shot Put
Senior Dan Klatzkin (Gaithersburg, Md.) earned the first of two silver medals on the day in the shot put, where he put the shot a season's-best 47-3.75 (14.42m). Freshman Todd Repass (Fredericksburg, Va.) was fifth in the event with a put of 42-1.25 (12.83m).

Klatzkin's second silver came in the discus, also with a season-best effort, as he hurled the discus out a distance of 149-2 (45.47m).

High Jump
Freshman Ben Katz (Manakin-Sabot, Va.) continued his very consistent rookie campaign in the high jump, taking second with a jump of 6-4.25 (1.94m), just one centimeter behind his best mark this season.

3,000m Steeplechase
In the steeplechase, freshman Thomas Baker (Louisa, Va.) finished third in 10:11.30.

3,000m Run
Baker's classmate, Griff Ashooh (Stafford, Va.), was fourth in the 3,000m open run, crossing the finish line in 9:37.86.

William and Mary returns to action next weekend at the world-famous Penn Relays.
