BY ANDRES FOCIL
AUSTIN, Texas – Arkansas continued its second day of competition Friday at the Texas Relays competing in 10 events.
“We are having guys do different things here,” head coach John McDonnell said. “Like in the 3200m relay, we ran three freshman on it. We didn’t try to win it. We thought that we might have a shot, but when you put three freshmen on it is tough. We are doing things like that. We are giving guys a chance. We are in a bit if a phase here and we are planning to for later in the year.”
Seniors John Cross and Marcus Clavelle set personal records in the shot put and discus respectively in the finals of both events. Cross threw 55-3 in is second-place victory, while Clavelle placed seventh in the discus with a throw of 183-5.
Freshman Ramon Washington leaped a season’s best 24-6.5. The mark is six inches longer than his first place finish last week the SEC Quadrangle in South Carolina.
Senior All-American Melvin Lister placed fourth in the long jump leaping 26-0. With the wind gust in the 20-mile per hour, Lister has qualified for the 2000 Outdoor Championships.
Freshman Daniel Lincoln ran his fastest 1500m of his career in the evening session of the Texas Relays. He ran the race in a time of 3:51.81.
Senior All-American Adam Dailey place fifth in the 1500m in a time of 3:54.14.
