February 6, 1999 HOOSIERS DOMINATE DAY TWO
Bloomington, Ind.- The Indiana men's track and field team dominated the final day of the Indiana Invitational at the Harry Gladstein Fieldhouse Saturday.
The men distanced themselves from the pack by winning the running events. The catalyst came in the 3,000m run as senior Tom Chorny ran a season best 8:06.91 to win the event and provisionally qualify.
IU junior Russell Brooks was the top collegiate in the 60m dash (6.78) and finished third in the 200m dash with time of 21.78 seconds. Meanwhile, freshman Raheem Ellis finished right behind Brooks in the 60m dash at 6.83 and dominated the 200m dash with an NCAA provisional qualifying mark of 21.43 seconds.
In the middle distance, freshman Ryan Huber won the 600m run with a personal best of 1:20.79. Then junior Dan Billish and freshman Neill O'Reilly score first (1:55.32) and second (1:55.44) in the 800m, respectively.
IU senior Jeremy Rochford led the Hoosier charge in the field events. Rochford matched his personal best and won the high jump by clearing 2.16m (7-1), which is an NCAA provisional height. Sophomore Brian Garriotte followed that act by setting a personal best in the pole vault, clearing 4.90m (16-0 3/4), and finishing off the field scoring, was junior Kurt Krick. After winning the shot put Friday, Krick came back and finished second in the 35 pound weight throw with a season best distance of 16.27m (53-4 1/2).
