Kocsor Takes Hammer Crown At Texas Relays

April 3, 2008

Results

For the second straight week, junior Boldizsar Kocsor notched a win in the hammer throw, this time at the prestigious Texas Relays in Austin on Thursday. Kocsor won the event with a throw of 222-5, just one inch shy of his lifetime-best (222-6) which he threw last weekend at the Cal/Nevada Championships.

Kocsor is the No. 1 ranked hammer thrower in the NCAA this season and won the event by just over a foot on Thursday.

Also on Thursday, the Bruin pole vaulters were in action as freshman Johnny Quinn and senior Chris Bencomo led the way with equal clearances of 17-0.75. Quinn placed second based on misses, while Bencomo finished third. The mark equaled Quinn's lifetime-best and was a new season-best for Bencomo.

Junior Bobby Talley equaled his lifetime-best with a mark of 16-6.75 as he finished tied for sixth in the competition.

The Bruins continue competing at the Texas Relays on Friday, while the distance runners will open up at the Stanford Invitational.
