STANFORD, Calif. - Utah State's men and women's track & field teams tallied six top-six finishes on Saturday, the final day of the Stanford Invitational in Stanford, Calif.
Freshman Briton Page crossed the finish line in third place in the men's 800m with the fourth-fastest time in USU history, while sophomore Nic Bowens also tabbed a third-place finish with a time of 21.16 in the men's 200m. Sophomore Travis Johnson rounded out the top-six placers for the Aggie men as he finished sixth in the triple jump with a leap of 14.29m (46-10.75).
On the women's side, junior Keeley Eldredge led the way with a throw of 54.32m (178-02) in the hammer throw to place third overall. With the toss, Eldredge now ranks ninth in school history. Sophomore Melanie Heslop also had a great day in the throwing events as she placed fifth in the discus with a mark of 44.20m (145-00) and sixth in the hammer with a throw of 51.34m (168-05).
"We had a lot of great performances yesterday and today," veteran head coach Gregg Gensel said. "We are working hard and training hard so that there can be even better things in the weeks to come."
Junior Kyle McKenna ran the fourth-fastest time in the men's 10,000m Friday (29:37.29), which was good enough to finish in 10th-place on the day. Freshman Tylee Newman's time of 4:26.51 on Friday ranks her at No. 5 in the Aggie history books.
