AUSTIN, Texas - The men's track and field team wrapped up a succesful day at the Texas Relays with an event title in the 4x800 relay and runner-up finish in the decathlon.

The relay team of Cale Wallace, Tomas Squella, Andrew Pisechko and Patrick Rono earned the event title in the 4x800 with a time of 7:24.12. The Razorbacks held steady in the top-five through the first two legs, with Pisechko bringing Arkansas into the lead on the third leg for the handoff to Rono, who brought it home for the win.

Less than two weeks after a third-place performance at the NCAA Indoor Championships, Kevin Lazas jumped back in for the deathlon. A PR-tying performance (17-4.5) in the polve vault earned Kevin 1,004 points, moving him from seventh place to third place. Taking a three-point lead over the field after a javelin throw of 196-2, Lazas finished 10th in the 1,500-meter (4:48.92) to finish second over all on the day with 7,592 points.

In the 1,500-meter, Gabe Gonzalez and Solomon Haile produced a 8-9 finish in 3:55.94 and 3:56.10, respectively.

Action resumes Friday with the 400-meter relay at 10 a.m. Live results can be followed here. Also follow @RazorbackTF on Twitter for additional information.
