Gilford wins javelin

WESTMINSTER, Md. – Andy Gilford (Westminster, Md./Westminster) won the javelin to lead McDaniel at its own home twilight invitational in men's outdoor track and field action on Wednesday.

Gilford was one of four individual winners for the Green Terror at the non-scoring meet, throwing 46.59 meters in the javelin.

Carlos Hernandez (Derwood, Md./Magruder) won the discus with a toss of 38.53 meters. He was also second in the shot put, throwing a distance of 14.00 meters to regain the top spot in the Centennial Conference (CC) rankings in the event. His shot put distance also ranks eighth on the program's all-time list.

Jordan Birden (Baltimore, Md./Cristo Rey Jesuit) won the high jump, clearing 1.85 meters. He was also fourth in the long jump with a leap of 6.17.

Peter Merkel (Ellicott City, Md./Homeschool) led the way on the track with a time of 4:13.20 to hit the CC qualifier and win the 1,500.

The sprint medley relay of Colin  LaPenta (Morristown, N.J./Morristown), Gary Smith, Arthur Williams (Baltimore, Md./Cristo Rey Jesuit) and Chris Jones (Centreville, Va./Centreville) teamed to win the sprint medley relay with a time of 3:40.12.

Williams added a fourth-place finish in the 100 with a time of 11.55 seconds while Jones crossed eighth in the 400 with a time of 53.91. Both were conference-qualifying times.

Nate Bell (Union Bridge, Md./Francis Scott Key) finished second in the discus with a toss of 35.77 while Chuck Kronmiller (Norristown, Pa./Methacton) finished runner-up in the javelin (46.06).

Steve Wetherhold (Catasauqua, Pa./Catasauqua) finished third in both the shot put (12.98) and discus (34.77).

The Green Terror returns to action at the Mason-Dixon Invitational hosted by Gettysburg on Saturday.
