Lint Wins on UVA Men's Indoor Opening Day
Jan. 15, 2016
BLACKSBURG, Va.–The Virginia men’s track and field team opened the 2016 indoor season at the Virginia Tech Invitational Friday (Jan. 15).
“There is always a lot of learning after the first competition of the year and this one was no exception,” UVA director of track and field/cross country Bryan Fetzer said. “One can walk away one of two ways, either you are right where you want to be or you have a lot of work to do to be where you want to be. It can be a wake up call or a confidence booster.
“I look forward to having the entire team compete next week at Kentucky. It will be a much better indicator of where we are.”
Bowman also placed third in the 300 meters in 34.82, fifth on UVA’s all-time freshman list. Fellow freshman Jake Dixon (Falmouth, Maine) finished sixth in 35.33.
In the 500 meters, junior Nathan Kiley (Chantilly, Va.) finished third in 1:03.80.
Redshirt sophomore Jeff Jernigan (DeKalb, Ga.) placed third in the unseeded pole vault, hitting a height of 4.60m (15′ 1″).
The meet concludes Saturday (Jan. 16) with action set to begin at 11 a.m.
