PITTSBURGH-Two Panthers earned first-place finishes, as the University of Pittsburgh men’s track and field team recorded a fourth-place performance at the Morgan State Legacy Meet in Baltimore, Md., this weekend.
“We took a different approach at the meet this year,” Pitt head coach Alonzo Webb said. “In the past we travelled with a full team. This season, however, we are more cautious about how much our athletes have been running the past few weekends and wanted to give them a break. Every meet from here on out will be important.”
In the long jump, sophomore Reginald Steele IV finished third with a leap of 7.04 meters.
Junior Tashaun Hill crossed the finish line fourth in the 110-meter hurdles finals with a time of 14.34, while junior Kevin Hull finished fourth in the 1,500-meter run at 4:00.64.
The Panthers return to action next week as they travel to Philadelphia, Pa., for the Penn Relays.
