Armstrong Highlights Successful Day for Track & Field
Feb. 3, 2018
NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Marquette men's and women's track and field concluded a busy Saturday at the Meyo Invitational hosted by Notre Dame and the Ranger Classic hosted by UW-Parkside. Altogether, the Golden Eagles recorded 11 personal-bests on each side and combined for eight all-time list marks on the weekend.
"A lot of good stuff across the board this weekend," Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. "This first weekend in February is when we really start to see a drop in times and we saw just that. We had a lot of good performances in the field as well. Overall, I like where we're at heading into next weekend at Grand Valley, which should be another fast track, and we can't wait to put down some more good marks."
The highlight of the day was Daniel Armstrong improving his mark in the high jump with a height of 2.19 meters (7-2.25 feet). He took home the win at Notre Dame and ranks atop the BIG EAST list, while ranking 15th in the nation. It was also the second-best jump all-time at Marquette, right behind Wally Ellenson's mark of 2.28 meters (7-5.75) set back in 2015.
