Fourth Competition in Four Weeks for Track & Field

BREVARD, N.C. – Competing in its fourth event in the last four weekends, the Brevard track & field team heads to Central S.C. on Friday to take part in the Susan Rouse Invitational, hosted by Southern Wesleyan University.

The event will take place on the Southern Wesleyan campus at the Joe R. Gilbert Track & Field. The facility opened in 2014 and has eight lanes along with three pits for long and triple jump. It has two shot put areas behind turns 3 and 4 and a throwing cage on the opposite side. Also included in the facility is a javelin throwing area as well as high jump and pole vault areas.

The Brevard track & field team took part in the Montreat Invitational over the weekend, earning 17 top 25 finishes along the way, including Michael Anton and Rhyanna Haden who finished ninth in the men's 800 meter run and the women's shot put, respectively.

Anton earned ninth place after crossing the line in a time of 2:02.07, finishing ahead of teammate Hassan Kiprono (2:07.92—18th), who also took part in the event. The Tornado tandem of Kiprono and Anton also took part in the men's 1500 meter event, with Kiprono placing 14th (4:21.28) and Anton crossing the line 10 spots later in a time of 4:29.73.

Haden, Brevard's top women's finisher on the weekend, brought home ninth place in the shot put after a heave of 9.54 meters in her third attempt. She eclipsed the nine meter mark on her first toss and finished with an 8.72 heave in her second. Joining her in the shot put event was Mackenzie Lautenschlager, who placed 24th after recording a 6.18 meter toss in her final attempt.
