HILLSDALE, Mich. – Big performances abounded for Lake Erie Track & Field on Saturday, a day that saw the Storm Men place second at the Hillsdale Invitational.
Jamil Dudley posted an NCAA-II qualifier number in the Men's High Jump, and the Lake Erie men carded 126 team points. Only Hillsdale (Mich.) scored more points (180) in the six-team field on the men's side. The Storm Women placed fourth in a field of five.
Dudley notched a 2.25-meter leap (7-04.5) in the high jump. The 88-plus inches set a new program record and marched LEC's first automatic qualifying mark of the outdoor season. It also earned Dudley first place on Saturday. The leap was one of four first-place finishes for LEC.
Joe Postwaite registered a season-best, 15.10-meter (49-06.5) mark in the triple jump, an event he won by more than four feet.
Shavon Thompson won the 100-meter dash, clocking in at 10.87 seconds. Ethan Snyder took first in the 110-meter hurdles, posting an NCAA provisional time of 14.49 seconds. His time in the 110 set a new LEC record. Snyder would also earn an NCAA-II B-cut in the 400-meter hurdles (52.06 seconds).
The Lake Erie women recorded two victories on Saturday at Hillsdale College's Ken Harrick Track.
The meet in Hillsdale, Mich., marked the Storm's third of the outdoor season. That season will continue with a meet at Baldwin-Wallace in Berea, Ohio, on April 19.
