In the jumps Rachel Lees jumped a new season best of 5’03” in the high jump to get 2nd place in the event. Reisa Saddoris in a very windy pole vault competition jumped 3.05m (10’0”) to earn her 2nd place in the event. Jordan Bright had a great day in the triple jump competition just missing the national mark, but was able to pull off 1st place with her best jump of 11.36m (37’03”.25) into a stiff head wind of -1.1m/s.
On the men’s side it showed to be a challenge as Kansas pulled out the win over Iowa with a score of 97 to 74. Rodrigo Rocha in his first 100m at the college level showed his abilities in the sprint events by running a time of 10.51 in the 100m to place 3rd and although got 5th in the 200m had a strong showing in the event running a time of 20.85. Nicholas Teetzel had pulled double duty in the distance events and was able to win the 3k steeple chase in a new PR time of 10:00.32, then come back later in the day to place 3rd in the 800m run. Blake Hunter ran his first 1500m of the season and was able to run a solid time of 4:18.5 to get 3rd in the race. The men’s 4x100m relay ran a strong time into the wind to finish 3rd in a time of 41.60 to improve on their national qualifying time. The 4x400m showed to be a good one to cap off the running events for the Reivers as the team of Denzel Washington, Cherby Laguerre, Anthony Powell, and Terrance Johnson pulled away at the end to finish in 3:16.67. Men’s long jump had a good showing from Sarael Duncan as he was able to pull off 3rd in the event with a new PR of 6.99m (22’11”.25). Despite a strong head wind on his last attempt in the triple jump Marc Clerveaux was able to finish 3rd with a jump of 14.02m (46’0”). The Reiver throwers had a solid competition with Sophomore Nathan Frakes finishing 2nd in the closely followed by teammate Cary Jones with both athletes throwing over 40m, Frakes 42.44m (139’03”) Jones (136’01”). The Hammer throw saw a school record breaking throw and national qualifying mark from Frakes as he threw a personal best of 50.32m (165’01”). Cary Jones nearly missed his personal best in the Javelin from a week before as he threw 42.04m (137’11”) which was good enough to earn 2nd place.
The Reivers look to host the now annual KJCCC vs. ICCAC Challenge as next year the competition is to be held at Iowa Western. You can catch the Reivers back in action next weekend as it will be a busy weekend of competition as the teams will be split between Sioux Relays and KT Woodman Classic held at Wichita State. Also next Sunday and Monday will be the Region Outdoor Multi-Event Competition held at home which should make for a good meet with what looks to be a total of 11 athletes men and women.
