The Tennessee men's track team dominated the field at a 4-way meet
at North Carolina State this past weekend. The Vols compiled a total of 85
points, blowing away foes from three different conferences. Behind the Vols
were North Carolina State (43), Wisconsin (39), and Georgetown (26).
Freshman two-sport athlete Greg Kyler had a busy meet -- taking
first place in the long jump and the 100 meters, while placing fourth in
the 200 meters. Darius Pemberton took a pair of second-place
finishes in the long jump and the 110-meter hurdles. UT throwers Lars
Sumberg, Travis Garrett and Rob Carlson captured the top spots in the
javelin, discus, and shot put respectively. Long distance runner Matt
Shuler took first place in the 3000-meter steeplechase, as teammate
Stewart Ellington took first in the 3000 meters. NCAA indoor pole
vaulting champ Tim Mack took first in his event as well.
The women's track team was busy this weekend as well, placing second
at the North Carolina Invitational at Chapel Hill. Seniors Sue Walton
and Alana Preston were both double winners, as the Lady Vols tallied 70
points, behind winner UNC's 77 and ahead of Nebraska's 54, Georgetown's 39,
and Michigan's 30. Tennessee took six total first-place finishes, placed in
the top five 18 times, and set 13 personal records. Preston broke the track
record in the shot put, as did Walton in both the 100 and 200 meters.
The Tennessee golf team placed seventh at the Carpet Capital Golf
Classic in Dalton, Ga., this past weekend. The Vols shot a three-round
total of 904, 28 shots behind champion and host Georgia Tech--one shot
behind six-place North Carolina. Florida and Auburn were the only other SEC
teams in the top seven. Florida finished a tie for third with Texas, as
Auburn finished in fifth place. Georgia finished in a tie for eighth, eight
strokes behind Tennessee. Dale Thorley was Tennessee's top finisher.
Thorley shot a three-round 222--in a tie for seventh on the list, 10
strokes behind the champion Stewart Cink of Georgia Tech.
