Quitzau Sets Hurdles Record at Yale
NEW HAVEN, Conn.—Senior Erik Quitzau hurdled his way to a school record Sunday as the University of Hartford track and field teams competed at the Yale Springtime Invitational. The unscored meet served as the Hawks' final tune up heading into next weekend's America East Outdoor Championship.
Quitzau, a senior from Blackstone, Mass., broke his own school record in the 110-meter hurdles Sunday. Crossing the line in 15.38 seconds, .03 seconds faster than his previous school-best, Quitzau finished fourth overall in the event.
Junior Tiffany Harrison also turned in a notable result, taking second place in the 400-meter dash. Harrison raced around the track in 57.89 seconds.
In the field, high jumpers Maggie Fuller and Lauren Bossi took second and third place, respectively, in the event. Fuller cleared 1.55 meters to take second, while Bossi leapt over a 1.50-meter bar to take third. The pair also faired well in the women's 110-hurdles. Fuller crossed the line eighth in 17.54 seconds while Bossi posted a fifth-place result with a time of 16.08.
The Hawks will be back in action May 3-4 when they compete at the 2014 America East Outdoor Track and Field Championship, hosted by the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vt.
