College Park, MD- The Johns Hopkins men’s outdoor track & field team opened up its 2016 season Saturday at the Maryland Invite, hosted by the University of Maryland.

The Blue Jays finished the event with 149 points, good enough for second place and 24 points behind team champion Rowan. Hopkins edged out host Division I Maryland, which finished in third place with 146 points.

Tom Boucher started his 2016 campaign off well, breaking the program record in the javelin with a 59.79m throw. He broke his own record, which he set last year, by more than five meters.

Andrew Bartnett picked up where he left off after a successful indoor season, winning the pole vault with 4.87m mark. Teammate Alex Kossak finished third in the pole vault, leaping 4.12m.

In the 100m race, Jesse Poore (11.51) and Rafael Ferguson (11.52) finished in third and fourth, respectively.

On the distance side, Schaffer Ochstein (8:43.70, third) and Scott Pourshalchi (8:51.70, fifth) finished in the top five of the 3000m run.

Hopkins will be back in action next Friday and Saturday when it travels to Williamsburg, VA for the Colonial Invite hosted by William & Mary.
