Giles Breaks School Record at Terrier Invite
Jan. 27, 2007
BOSTON, Mass. - Jake Gallagher and John Langhauser won their events, while Brandon Giles broke a school record as the Elis finished competition Saturday afternoon at Boston University's Terrier Classic. Giles ran 21.83, breaking a 14-year old record in the 200-meter dash, which was held by Calvin Anderson at 21.98 (also tied by Michael Borden in 1999).
Gallagher won the 5,000-meter run with a time of 14:23.20, which puts him at fifth on the all-time list. Langhauser won the shot put with a distance of 17.06 meters, a full meter farther than the next competitor.
Other top performances include Ted Galligan in the 500-meter dash, where he was third with a time of 1:05.29. Brian Gertzen was 14th in the one mile run with a time of 4:08.65, good enough for 12th fastest all-time. The 4x400-meter relay team was fourth with a time of 3:18.41.
The Bulldogs will be back next weekend to host the Giegengack Invitational.
