Jeong Ties W&L Men's T&F 100m School Record

CLEMSON, S.C. — Sophomore Aaron Jeong (Federal Way, Wash./Thomas Jefferson) tied the Washington and Lee men's track and field 100m school record on Saturday at the Bob Pollock Invitational hosted by Clemson. The meet consisted of Division I, II and III athletes with select Generals looking to improve their times/marks in order to qualify for the NCAA Championships.

Jeong ran a 10.84 in the prelims, which tied the school record last set in 2001. Both Wes Boyd (1990) and Marc Watson (2001) have also run as fast. Jeong finished fifth in the finals with a time just a fraction of a second slower (10.85). Also competing in the 100m for W&L were juniors Cole Glasgow (Dallas, Texas/Jesuit College Prep) and Agustin Kim (La Habra, Calif./Troy). Glasgow ran an 11.15 in the prelims, while Kim crossed the line with a season-best time of 11.20.

In the javelin, the Generals took the top three spots. Sophomore Eddie Barnes (Ashburn, Va./Broad Run) finished first at 58.22m (191'00.00"), senior Dylan Mills (Mobile, Ala./St. Paul's) came in second with a mark of 57.67m (189'02.00") and junior Kevin Sullivan (Sandwich, Mass./Tabor) took third at 54.11m (177'06.00").

The 4x100m relay placed fourth with a time of 42.21. The quartet consisted of Jeong, Glasgow, Kim and junior Zander Tallman (Grand Blanc, Mich./Cranbrook-Kingswood). Tallman also tied his season-best in the 200m at 22.08.

Junior Dillon Myers (Foxborough, Mass./Foxborough) will compete in the decathlon on Monday and Tuesday at the Lynchburg Multi-Event.
