Third-year jumper/thrower Brian Pankey placed in the top three in all three of his events at the Saint Louis University Billiken Invite on Friday and Saturday, April 11 and 12, earning KIAC Men’s Field Athlete of the Week. His performances boosted the Eutectics’ team finish to eighth place of 15 teams at the meet. Pankey started the meet off on Friday by finishing second of 20 competitors in the javelin throw with a toss of 51.96m/170-06. Immediately after javelin, he headed to the long jump pit, where he soared 6.64m/21-09.5 into third place of 16. Saving the best for last, Pankey finished the meet on Saturday afternoon by winning the men’s triple jump with a leap of 13.41m/44-00, beating out eight other college jumpers, and landing the 26th best jump so far in the NAIA.
Fourth-year thrower and 2013 All-American Jordan Robertson also claimed points for the Eutectics by finishing just behind Pankey in the javelin in third place at 51.00m/167-04.
Third-year thrower Clinton Washington and second-year hurdler Zach Wainwright each broke their own STLCOP records on Saturday in the hammer and 400m hurdles. Washington improved his record in the hammer by nearly 10 feet, hurling the hammer 36.96m/121-03. Wainwright brought his 400m hurdles time down by a half second from his record-breaking performance two weeks ago, finishing at 59.30.
Another notable performance came from third-year middle distance runner James Lidy in the 1500m. Finishing the race in 4:19.66, Lidy greatly improved his PR while becoming the third-fastest 1500m runner in STLCOP history.
The Eutectics will return to competition on Saturday, April 19, at the Dewey Allgood Invitational at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Mo.
