Reuter Finishes 11th at Pac-10 Decathlon Championship

May 7, 2006

Freshman Matthew Reuter dropped to 11th-place on the second and final day of the Pac-10 Decathlon Championships, hosted by the University of Oregon, as he was just two points shy of his season-best score.

Arizona's Robert Arnold won the competition with an NCAA automatic score of 7,691 points. Joshua Kinnaman of Arizona State was second (7,207) and Oregon senior Andy Young finished third (7,071).

Reuter, who was in ninth-place after the first day of the multi-event competition, finished the meet with a score of 6,269 points (season-best 6,271).

Reuter opened up the second day of competition running 16.16 in the 110m hurdles to pick up 715 points. In the discus, he threw 110-11 for 540 points. A lifetime-best pole vault mark of 12-11.50 would pick up 603 more points for the freshman. He then threw a lifetime-best in the javelin, 136-5, adding 465 points to his total. In the final event of the meet, the 1500m, Reuter ran a season-best 5:02.68 to pick up 544 points.

Modesto Relays
Three Bruins also competed at the Modesto Relays on Saturday - junior Mike Landers and sophomores Chris Bencomo and Joel Tuosto. Landers finished second in the pole vault with a jump of 17-5, while Bencomo picked up his regional qualifying mark in the vault, clearing a lifetime-best 16-7.25 to place sixth overall. Tuosto finished seventh in the long jump with a mark of 24-2.25 (w+2.4).

Looking Ahead
The Bruins will now head to the Pac-10 Track and Field Championships in Eugene, OR May 13-14.
