Small UNH men's track contingent succeeds at Central Connecticut State Invitational

DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire men's track team had just nine student-athletes compete at Saturday's Central Connecticut State University Invitational, but the Wildcats won three events and also captured a pair of second-place finishes.

Chad Weathers (Conway, N.H.) bested the field with a throw of 151-feet, 6 inches in the hammer throw and teammate Mike Puzzo (East Hampton, Conn.) finished directly behind Weathers at 140-10.

Tim Lyons (Wakefield, Maine) headed a strong UNH contingent in the javelin by winning the event with a distance of 208-5.5. Ben Blakesly placed fourth at 180-7.5 and Puzzo's effort of 168-8.5 was good enough for sixth place.

Jamison Whiting (Salem, N.H.) was the other New Hampshire athlete to earn first place, as his height of 15-6 was tops in the pole vault. Joil Bergeron (Keene, N.H.) finished second in the discus with a throw of 147-3.

The men's track team resumes competition April 22 at Northeastern University. The meet begins at 11 a.m.
