Sprinters Impress for Men’s Track at Princeton

PRINCETON, N.J. – A pair of school-records were broken and several freshman had great showings in the 100m Dash as Wesley College men's track & field team competed at the Sam Howell Invitational hosted by Princeton University on Saturday afternoon.

Starting the afternoon, the 4x100 Relay of freshmen Markael Jenkins, Da'Jahn Lowery, Patrick Schlosser and Vidal Adams finished in 42.42, placing fifth overall and first among non-NCAA Division I squads.  Among the school's to top the Wolverines were Princeton, Brown and Binghamton.

Jenkins was also one of three Wesley runners to place in the top seven of 35 overall runners, placing fourth overall in 10.98.  Just behind him in fifth were Adams (11.01) and Schlosser in seventh (11.01).

Establishing new Wesley records on the day were freshman Dominic McAnulty and Anthony Brinkley.  McAnulty won his heat and placed sixth out of 48 runners, first among non-Division I runners in 49.05.  His time shatters Matt Robertson's five-year-old record by 1.80 seconds.

Brinkley now is in the record books in the 400 hurdles, running a 57.19 to top Frank Buffa's four-year-old record by a tenth of a second.

Next Saturday, Wesley will travel to Baltimore for the Loyola/Hopkins Invitational.
