Washington and Wainwright Lead Euts at Jim Green Invitational
Clinton Washington had been itching to get his first weight throw in for the year. With no weight competition at the Principia Relays, Washington made his 2014 debut on Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Jim Green Invitational at Illinois College. He wasted no time, making his first throw his best throw of the day and the best in school history. The throw of 13.70m/44'11.5" broke the school record and ended up finishing fourth of 29 competitors. "Clinton's been like a little kid with the weight throw,” says head coach David Baker. “The weight and hammer are like his favorite toys and he's just having fun out there throwing." Washington's hoping to become STLCOP’s first national qualifier in the hammer throw this season, and his efforts on Saturday were a good start.
Zach Wainwright was, without question, the Eutectics’ busiest athlete on Saturday. Wainwright competed in the 60H (10.02), 400m (55:49), Sprint Medley, 4x200 (1:40.33), and Triple Jump (6th, 12.03, 39'5"). He scored in both of the relays and the triple jump. "I offered to let Zach out of the 400 to run the medley, but he really wanted to do both and just put a lot of effort into each of his races Saturday,” says Baker. “I was pretty pumped up with the outcomes." The team of Wainwright, Steven Cowdin, Jonathan Orf, and Derrick Lathon-Barnett set the school record in the 4x200.
Other notable performances included Brian Pankey just missing a PR and finishing sixth in the long jump (6.35m/20'10") and Jordan Robertson finishing eighth (12.68m/41'7.25") in the shot put. James Lidy led the distance runners with a PR in the mile (4:47.33), finishing 15th of 41 competing. The sprint medley team of Pankey, Wainwright, Lathon-Barnett, and Lidy finished seventh in the sprint medley (3:56.32).
