PITTSBURGH-Senior Antony Hobwana claimed second overall in the 100M dash, as the University of Pittsburgh men’s track and field team wrapped up its final day of competition at the Charlotte 49er Classic on Saturday, March 17.
“We performed well this weekend,” Pitt head coach Alonzo Webb said. “I was happy across the board with our results today. We feel good about this weekend.”
Hobwana placed second in the 100M dash after he clocked in at 10.57 in the finals. It is the No. 1 time in the Big East. Hobwana was seeded eighth following yesterday’s prelims.
Later, Hobwana anchored the 4x100M relay team of freshman Josh Mindlin and sophomores Reginald Steele IV and Aaron Turner to fifth overall in the event (42.19) and claim another Big East leading time.
“Antony has been training for a year now,” Webb noted. “It was impressive for him to come out and run well. He was outstanding this weekend.”
In another second-place effort, junior Tashaun Hill placed second in the 110M hurdles, claiming a personal best and the fourth-best time in the nation at 14.07. He improved on his fifth-place performance in Friday’s prelims (14.39).
