Men’s track and field sets two OLLU records at Rice meet

The men’s track and field team participated in the J Fred Duckett Twilight Invite at Rice University on April 22. The event took place at the university’s Wendel D. Ley Track & Holloway Field.

Head Coach Patrick Torres commented, “Rice is usually a good meet for our distance athletes so watching a few sprint and field event athletes really show out was special. Jose Zarate‘s school record and all the PRs are great momentum coming into our conference meet.”

Significant results include Jonathan Sanchez‘s results in the javelin throw earned him a bid the NAIA  National. He broke his own school record as well as hitting the National “B” standard with a throw of 55.54m.  In addition, Jose Zarate‘s time of 14:56.41 in the 5000m is a school record.
