— Junior Tanner Anderson breaks his own school record in the men’s high jump by clearing 7-3.25 (2.22) and winning the event at the Virginia Tech Challenge Saturday, Feb. 16 in Blacksburg, Va. The Valdese, N.C., native cleared the bar on his final attempt in order to clench his victory in the event.

Freshman Carl Heinz also competed in the event, finishing fourth with a clearance of 6-7 (2.01). Both men plan to compete in the ACC Indoor Track & Field Championships next weekend, Feb. 21-23.

“It was a very good weekend all around, but especially in the field events,” commented Duke track and field Associate Head Coach Shawn Wilbourn. “It was a great last meet to tune-up before the conference championship and get some more competition experience. We are getting a little better each week on handling the anxiety that come with competing and gained a lot of confidence going into next week.”

Junior Justin Amezquita cleared 17 feet in the men’s pole vault for the first time this season, clearing 17-0.75 (5.20) to finish second in the event. The season-best mark puts him in second place in the ACC the week before conference championships.

In the women’s pole vault, freshman Megan Clark and senior Emily Mattoon continue to progress both setting personal records by clearing 12-9.5 (3.90) to finish second and third overall. With the mark, both women move into a tie for fourth in Duke’s record books.

“It was great to see both earn college PR’s. They have been able to improve over the last few weeks and trending into the right direction before championships. It is especially exciting to see Emily do so well her senior year after battling a foot injury that has bothered her for awhile.”

Junior Michelle Anumba picked up her second win of the weekend in the women’s shot put. The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., native had her best throw of the day on her first attempt measuring at 53-1.75 (16.20). Junior Erica Brand finished fifth in the event with her best throw measuring at 43-5.75 (13.25) and junior Miray Seward finished 12th with a season best 38-4.75 (11.70).

In the men’s shot put, redshirt freshman Stephen Boals finished second earning a mark of 54-2.0 (16.51) on his final attempt. Redshirt sophomore finished third with his best mark measuring 51-9.75 (15.79) while Austin Gamble and Robert Rohner finished in seventh and ninth overall.

On the track, senior Gabby Levac finished first in the women’s 1,000 meter run crossing the line in 2:51.54. She was joined by junior Brianna Welch and freshman Madison Granger who finished in sixth and seventh respectively. For the men, sophomore Brian Schoepfer finishing third in the same event with a time of 2:26.66. Freshman Jon Michael Hilsheimer also competed in the event, finishing in 12th place.

In the men’s 5,000m the Blue Devils had a two-three-four finish with freshman Daniel leading the Duke charge crossing the line in 14:55.29, and junior Spencer Pecha and freshman William Hague finishing in 14:56.02 and 14:56.98 respectively.

“Overall, it is good to see everything that we have been working on come together at the right time in the season.”

In New York, N.Y. the Duke men’s 4x800m relay team finished second at Millrose Games in a school record breaking time of 7:26.88. The quartet of freshmen Tommy Meister and Michal Filipczak along with sophomore Kyle Moran and Nate McClafferty ran the second fastest time in the world this year in front of the sellout crowd at the Armory Track. Filipczak anchored the quartet with the impressive time of 1:49.80 to secure the victory.

Duke will return to competition next week at the ACC Indoor Championships at Rector Field House in Blacksburg, Va.


BLACKSBURG, Va. - Junior Michelle Anumba dominated the women’s hammer throw field at the Virginia Tech Challenge Friday, Feb. 15, with a winning throw of 57-9.75 (17.62). The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., native earned her best mark on her second throw of the night but her two other fair marks traveled farther than the rest of the field, solidifying her top position.

Junior Hannah Goranson also had a successful day finishing third in the 60 meter hurdle finals with a personal best time and new school record of 8.58. The Los Altos, Calif., native finished first in the preliminary round earlier in the evening with a time of 8.63, giving her a qualifying spot for finals. Multi-event athletes Miray Seward and Baily Murphy also competed in the event finishing tenth and 19th respectively.

“Hannah is a great hurdler and has been working a lot on her speed this season,” said Associate Head Coach Shawn Wilbourn. “She is starting to combine speed with technique and seeing results. Her goal is to make the finals next week in a very deep field. Also we will probably rely on her to step into the 4x400 as well.”

Earlier in the evening, Murphy led a large group of Blue Devil’s in the long jump with a fourth place finish, jumping a personal record distance of 17-9.75 (5.43). Junior Destiny Roseman finished ninth with a mark of 17-3.50 (5.27) while juniors Seward and Courtney Kedra finished in 11th and 20th place in the event.

On the men’s side, sophomore Ian Rock finished first in the men’s pole vault clearing a personal best 16-00.75 (4.90). He was joined by freshman Robert Rohner who cleared 11-1.75 (3.40) to finish tenth overall.

Prior to the pole vault, multi-eventers Rock and Rohner also competed in the long jump finishing in 11th and 12th place overall. Both men earned season-bests in the event with Rock’s best leap measuring at 21-11.50 (6.69) and Rohner earning a mark of 21-8.00 (6.60).

On the track, senior Mike Moverman ran a personal best time in the mile run, crossing the line in 4:09.11 to finish eighth place and later in the evening senior Megan Deakins ran her first indoor race of her collegiate career, finishing fourth in the 3,000m with a time of 9:51.12.

The competition continues tomorrow, Feb. 16, in Blacksburg, Va. At the same time, a small group of Blue Devils will also compete in the Millrose games in New York, N.Y.
