Track & field teams compete at pair of meets

ITHACA, N.Y.—Freshman Cal Michaels and junior Jessica Hennig recorded first-place finishes at the Cornell April Open this past weekend. There were no teams scores kept at the meet.

Hennig, who is the three-time defending America East Conference indoor champion in the women’s 400, won the same event in an outdoor meet for the second week in a row with a time of 57.02. Michaels, meanwhile, took top honors in the men’s 1,500 in a time of 3:58.99.

Elsewhere on the men’s side, freshman Collin Frost was the runner-up to Michaels in the 1,500 (4:00.56), John Slaven was second in the pole vault (15-3) and senior Colin Anderson was second in the hammer (173-2) and third in the discus (148-7).
