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