Men's Indoor Track & Field - Sat, Feb. 1, 2014

(Upland, Ind.)  Louis Falland got a late start to the 2014 Indoor T&F season, but made up for it with a fast debut at the Taylor University Indoor Invitational. Racing in the 1,000 meters, Falland hoped to break the Cornerstone school record of 2:27.41 set in 2007 by Derek Scott. Without strong competition, Louis enlisted two teammates to assist with pacing in the early laps.  Senior, Cody Risch and freshman, Isacc Burnham led the first 400 meters in 57.9 before stepping off the track. After passing 800 meters in 1:59.1, Louis cruised the last lap in 30.5 seconds. His winning time of 2:29.64, while short of the record, tied him for second on the NAIA national list. Jared Holmberg lowered his best time to 2:37.26 to take second.

Deon Fox took down the school record in the 55 meter hurdles. After taking eighth in the prelims in 8.08, Fox finished seventh in the finals, clocking 7.93 and shaving .02 off the previous CU record set in 2005 by Josh Beardslee.

Freshman, William Russell moved up from his usual 400 meter distance and took third in the 600 meters, crossing the line in 1:25.41.  Cody Risch added another third place in the 3,000 meters with his time of 9:07.31.

The Golden Eagles had a good day in the field events as well.  Logan Norton tied for fourth in the pole vault, clearing 14-5.25.  Fox took seventh in the long jump with a new best of 20-7.25.

The throwers did especially well.  Gabe Turner added seventeen inches to his school record in the shot put to take fourth behind teammate Ross Raymond's   47-11.25 effort in third. Turner's new record of 46-11 puts him second on the CU all-time list behind Raymond and was his fourth freshman record in four meets.

Sophomore, Daniel Door improved his best in the 35 pound weight throw to 44-11 for twelfth place. Turner added another PR throwing 43-9.75 in fifteenth.
