Bundy, Wiggs Victorious at Frank Colden Invite

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Sophomore Matt Bundy (60m hurdles) and freshman Robert Wiggs (long jump) won individual events as the Wesley College men's track & field team finished sixth of 16 squads at the Frank Colden Invitational, hosted by Ursinus on Saturday. 

Battling flu-like symptoms, Bundy improved on his NCAA qualifying time with a school-record 8.19 in the 60m hurdles.  Bundy also anchored the 4x200m Relay to a second place finish and a school-record time of 1:35.35.  Joining him on the Relay was Maurice Reyes, Carl Watson and Wiggs.

Making his collegiate track debut, Wiggs won the long jump with a 20' 9.0" effort.  He also finished fourth in the 60m Dash (7.23) and fifth in the triple jump (40' 10.5") despite jumping just once and passing on three other opportunities.

Watson and fellow freshman Alex Costley added three points for Wesley by finishing seventh and eighth in the 400m Dash in times of 54.07 and 54.15, respectively.  Costley also ran the opening leg of the school-record breaking 4x800m Relay (Alex Dello Buono, Will Scott and Jaaron Carson) to a third place finish in 9:38.82.

Carson also added a half point, along with Zachary Taylor, by tying for eighth in the high jump (5' 8.0").  Carson also finished eighth in the 60m hurdles in 9.06. Cody Hermann also clocked a team-leading 2:16.60 in the 800m Run.

Wesley will now have two weeks off to prepare for the Capital Athletic Conference Championships on February 17 at the George Mason University Fieldhouse.
