HOUSTON -

Led by senior Paulo Pinheiro winning his second straight 10,000-meter Conference USA Outdoor Track and Field Title, the Tulsa men’s track team sits in first-place after the second day of action at the C-USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

The Golden Hurricane men’s squad has 33 points after earning 25 points in the 10,000-meters.

Pinheiro clocked a time of 30:27.25 to win his second-straight title. Dennis Hodapp was third in 30:40.46, while Tim Rackers claimed fourth-place in 30:40.52. Freshman Marc Scott earned a sixth-place showing in 31:00.91, while Kevin Mayer was eighth in 31:52.52.

In the decathlon, Alex Sementelli earned the Hurricane four points with a fifth-place showing of 6,597 points. Sementelli was fourth in the 1,500-meters in 4:47.94, and fifth in the javelin with a heave of 152 feet (46.34m). Sophomore Colt Johnson was tenth in the decathlon with a score of 5,669 points.

Freshman Alex Lybarger also snared TU four points in the hammer throw with a personal best of 169 feet, 1 inch (51.55m).

“I thought it was good day for us,” commented Head Coach Steven Gulley. “I thought we got a big boost in the hammer with Alex, and Alex Sementelli really stepped up for us in the multis. They set the tone. We had more pluses than minuses today, and we need to continue that trend tomorrow and Sunday.”

On the women’s side, junior Josie Wilcox was sixth in the 10,000-meters with a  time of 36:34.16. Sophomore Janessa Dunn was ninth in 36:43.91.


 

 

In the heptathlon, senior Carolin Imhof claimed ninth-place with 4,835 points.  Her best event of the day was the javelin, as she claimed second with a heave of 136 feet.
