The Vol track and field squad continued its string of successes today at

the Knoxville Invitational.

In Sunday's field events, Russell Johnson won the pole vault with teammates

Tom Pappas and Clint Binder finishing third and fourth, respectively.

Diondre Jackson finished third in the high jump behind former Tennessee

standout Randy Jenkins' mark of 6-11 1/2, and Matt Rush followed Jackson

with a fourth-place finish of his own.

Scott Perkinson and Tyler Garrett finished fourth and fifth, respectively,

in the discus, and Jeremy Racey grabbed a second-place finish in the

javelin with a throw of 180-2.

Tennessee shot putters finished third and fourth as Garrett and Toby Colyer

took the top collegiate spots. Former Tennessee All-America Brad Ausmus

finished second in the event with a put of 57-9 1/2.

In the hammer throw, former Vol Wes Boudreau claimed first as Perkinson

finished in fourth.

On the track, the Vols were led by Anthony Famiglietti's runner-up finish

in the 1,500 meters just three days after his spectacular qualifying run in

the steeplechase at the Penn Relays. Famiglietti's time of 3:50.15 beat

teammates Brian Wallace and Jesse Bacigalupi, who finished third and

fourth, respectively.

In the 110-meter hurdles, Anthony Thompson finished fourth, followed by

Matt Rush and Jeremy Racey. John Dickson and Chris Hendrix finished fourth

and fifth in the 800-meter run. Frankie Davis snagged a third-place finish

in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles.

Tennessee's next action occurs Friday and Saturday at Tom Black Track. The

Vols will host Auburn, James Madison and Georgia Tech in a team-scoring

meet. The Gatorade Classic begins at 5 p.m. on Friday.
