Hopkins Men Succeed at Two Meets
HOPKINS/LOYOLA INVITATIONAL COMPLETE RESULTSBALTIMORE, MD- The Johns Hopkins men's track team competed in a pair of events this weekend. The squad spent Thursday and Friday at the Mount Multi Meet before returning home to baltimore for the Hopkins/Loyola Invitational, its only home meet of the 2016 season.
The Jays fared well at both events, led by their heptathlon athletes at Mt. St. Mary's and distance runners back home in Baltimore.
At Mount St. Mary's it was Devin Conley who led the way with a 6394 score in the decathlon. The senior had several outstanding results in the 10 events including a 1.87m (6' 1 1/2") high jump and 6.87m (22' 6 1/2") long jump which both currently both lead the conference standing along with his overall decathlon score.

Highlights in the distance events included Billy Scola's win in the steeplechase (9:42.09) and Brandon Fielder's 15:14 finish in the 5000m run, which was good enough for third place.
The Blue Jays will be back in action this weekend when they travel to West Chester, PA for the Widener Invitational.
