W&L Men's T&F Sets Two Records on Day Two of Carnival
LEXINGTON, Va. — The Washington and Lee men's track and field team set two school records on day two of the W&L Carnival on Saturday. The 4x100m relay broke the mark set last spring, and junior Aaron Jeong (Federal Way, Wash./Thomas Jefferson) set the 100m record, which had stood for the last 24 years.
Jeong took the top spot in the 100m with a time of 10.82. The previous record was 10.84, held by Jeong, Wes Boyd and Marc Watson. The mark was originally set in 1990.
The 4x100m relay also finished first with a time of 41.73. The quartet of seniors Agustin Kim (La Habra, Calif./Troy), Cole Glasgow (Dallas, Texas/Jesuit College Prep), Zander Tallman (Grand Blanc, Mich./Cranbrook-Kingswood) and Jeong topped the previous mark of 41.92 set last year.
Tallman also won two individual events on Saturday. He claimed first in the 400m with a time of 47.92, and had the fastest time in the 200m at 21.86. Also in the 200m, Jeong placed third with a personal best time of 22.24.
Senior Dillon Myers (Foxborough, Mass./Foxborough) secured the other event win for W&L, coming in the 400m hurdles. Competing in the second heat, Myers crossed the finish line with the top time of 54.76.
In the 800m, first-year Jack Jones (Lookout Mountain, Ga./McCallie School) set a career best with a time of 1:56.08 to take second place. First-year Harrison DeKnight (Midland Park, N.J./Midland Park) recorded a personal best in the triple jump of 12.49m (40'11.75") to finish fourth.
The Generals compete next Saturday at the Commonwealth Duals hosted by Christopher Newport.
