Freshman Turey Stoudemire finished second in the high jump while Jose Gonzalez placed third in the mile run as the TSU men’s track team had five top-five finishes at the Leonard Hilton Memorial on Friday.
Stoudemire had a solid collegiate debut as the freshman tied for the top mark (6-6.75) in the high jump but finished second as the leader cleared an earlier height in only one attempt. Caleb Davis also had a solid debut in the event as he tied for fourth in the high jump with a height of 6-4.75. Joshua Goslee finished sixth in the pole vault after a mark of 13-1.75 while Chadrick Williams logged a mark of 48-9.5 in the triple jump en route to a fourth-place finish. Hezekiah Freeman’s throw of 51-5 in the weight throw was good for fourth.
On the track, Gonzalez finished third with a run of 4:24.46 in the mile for TSU’s best outing on the track while Brandon Washington placed fifth in the 800 with a time of 1:56.13.
The team is back in action on Friday at the Red Raider Open in Lubbock, Texas.
