More Records Fall as Track and Field Concludes Split Action

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Belmont Track and Field teams wrapped split squad action at the Boston-Moon Classic and Sea Ray Relays on a high note with yet another shattered program record.

In Knoxville at the University of Tennessee Sea Ray Relays , junior Erick Kigen (Eldoret, Kenya) smashed the program's steeplechase mark with a time of 9:19.89 for a fourth-place finish.

On the final day of the Tennessee State-hosted Boston-Moon Classic, the Bruins continued to excel.  Highlights included senior Jilian Linklater (Lake Orion, Mich.) winning the high jump with a 5'6" mark, taking over the top spot in the conference in the event.  Sophomore Walter Burn (Nashville, Tenn.) won both the shot put and discus while freshman Stuart Landis (Victor, Mont.) took the top spot in the javelin with a season-best 173'10".  Sophomore Emily Davis (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) won the 400m with a PR of 56.13.

"We ended the weekend with another day of great performances," said Director of CrossCountry and Track & Field Jeff Langdon.  "Kigen broke a long-standing steeplechase Belmont record, and Emily Davis came out swinging with another PR in the 400."

"The throws and sprints crews had a really good set of performances.  Everything is moving in the right direction, and we're miles ahead of where we were a year ago," said Assistant Coach Joe Frye.
