NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Led by senior Zander Tallman (Grand Blanc, Mich./Cranbrook-Kingswood), the Washington and Lee men's track and field team set two school records at the Dr. Keeler Invitational hosted by North Central College on Friday.
Tallman broke his own record in the 400m, taking the top spot out of 35 competitors. He crossed the finish line in 47.35, which bested the previous mark of 47.66. Tallman had recorded the previous record twice in his career, including earlier this season.
In the 4x100m relay, Tallman anchored the W&L quartet that placed third in 41.47. The time broke the school record of 41.61 set earlier this year. The combo consisted of seniors Agustin Kim (La Habra, Calif./Troy) and Cole Glasgow (Dallas, Texas/Jesuit College Prep), junior Aaron Jeong (Federal Way, Wash./Thomas Jefferson) and Tallman.
Senior Kevin Sullivan (Sandwich, Mass./Tabor) claimed first in the javelin with a toss of 57.26m (187'10.00"). Jeong took second in the 100m with a time of 10.85, and Tallman crossed the finish line third (21.73) in the 200m.
