KENT, Ohio – The Slippery Rock University men's indoor track and field team recorded 21 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference qualifying marks, three NCAA provisional marks and broke one school record Saturday at the Kent State Tune Up.
Among the 21 PSAC qualifying marks recorded by The Rock men Saturday were nine improvements on previous season bests and two athletes that used the last chance tune up to hit the qualifying mark for the first time this season.
The headliner on the day for Slippery Rock came in the event that finished last as Caleb Smithco won the triple jump with a big personal best that shattered his own program record. His leap of 15.23 meters vaults him up to the No. 1 spot in the PSAC this season and the fifth best mark in Division II.
His previous best of 14.76 meters established a new SRU record back at the beginning of the season.
Smithco, a Hampton graduate, also reached the PSAC standard in the long jump Saturday with a fourth place finish and a leap of 6.61 meters.
