  • BRONX, NY - In anticipation of next week’s Metropolitan Championships, and because most of the team has already qualified for postseason competition, the Rutgers men’s track and field team took only a small number of competitors to the Columbia Invitational at the New York Armory on Saturday, Jan. 31. Nonetheless, the team was able to record a number of excellent finishes.

    Freshman Rob Waters (Bellmawr, NJ) and sophomore Marcel Coleman (Harrisburg, PA) went 1-2 in the 60-meter dash with times of 6.93 and 6.96, respectively. The duo also scored in the 200 meters, with Waters taking second (21.78) and Coleman finishing fourth (22.33). Sophomore Ryan Westman (Bala Cynwyd, PA) won the 400 meters (48.10), while junior David Klics (Lincoln Park, NJ) took second in the 60-meter hurdles (8.21).

    In the field events, junior Anthony Butler (Pittsgrove, NJ) was victorious in the high jump with a leap of 2.06 meters. The Scarlet Knights recorded a pair of second-place finishes following junior Sam Segond’s (East Stroudsburg, PA) 17.11 meter throw in the shot put and sophomore Marquis Allen’s (Mays Landing, NJ) 7.24 meter effort in the long jump.
