School Record Broken

School Record Broken

The Belmont Bruins officially kicked off the indoor track & field season at the Vanderbilt Invitational.

The Bruins did a very nice job of keeping up with the competition that was at this event, beating several top schools and setting a few personal records and a school record along the way.

In the men's high jump, freshman Noah Grimm finished number 5 and set a new school record at a whopping 2.03 meters high. This beats out the previous school record of 1.99m set by Drake Mitchell and Caleb Corprew during the 2018 OVC Championship.

Freshman Jacob McLeod was able to transition very nicely from cross country to track & field on Friday, as he won the men's 5000 meter run with a time of 14:32.41. He finished first out of 19 runners.

In that same event, right behind Jacob McLeod was his brother, junior Kaleb McLeod, who finished in second place with a time of 14:41.48. 

Aidan Thompson set himself a PR in the men's 3000 meter run, in which he finished with a time of 8:23.64. He finished in 9th place out of 51 runners, beating out top runners from several schools including Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, and Alabama to name a few.

Junior Christian Gonzales also set himself a new personal record in the 800 meter dash, as he finished No.10 out of 32 runners with a time of 1:54.36. His previous record was 1:57.28.

Belmont returns to action on Friday, as they will be competing in the Thundering Herd Invitational in Huntington W.Va from January 25-26.
