The men’s and women’s track and field teams finished seventh and 10th, respectively, during the weekend at the Big East Outdoor Championships in Philadelphia.
The men racked up points with a strong showing from defending Big East champion Glenn Fowler, who took first in the 400-meter hurdles for the second year in a row, posting a career-best 51.05 seconds.
The men’s 4×100-meter relay team also had a solid performance with a second place finish, losing to the University of Cincinnati by one-tenth of a second. Senior Errol Blackmon and junior Greg Fontus added points in the high jump and 100-meter.
Junior Yvana Hepburn finished third in the 100-meter hurdles and sophomore pole-vaulter Stephanie Duffy also took third with vault of 12-7 feet.
The Bulls are back on the road again this weekend, heading to the Georgia Tech Invitational before regional qualifying begins at the end of May.
