    "Even though we finallyy got warm weather, the steady winds of 20-25 mph made it impossible to turn in fact times," said head coach Jim Knoedel.  "We had three impressive wins by Seyi, Kyle and Angelos."

    Kyle Hauser and Photis Karkalis ran in the 1,500-meter run finishing first and fourth with times of 4:00.82 and 4:03.59, respectively.

    "Angelos ran such a smart race despite the windy conditions and then showed he was the toughest one in the field on the stretch run into the face of the wind," said Knoedel. 

    Seyi Ogunleye finished with competitive marks in both the long jump and triple jump.  In the long jump, Ogunleye placed second with a mark of 7.05 meters, and first-place in the triple jump leaping 14.55 meters.
