STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Eastern New Mexico University’s track teams used a solid performance in the throwing events to finish second on the men’s side and third in women’s competition on Thursday in the Tarleton Relays.
Host Tarleton State captured the men’s team title with 195 points to 88 for ENMU. Texas Lutheran won the women’s crown with 211 1/2 points to 135 1/2 for Tarleton and 57 for ENMU.
There were 12 schools in men’s competition and 10 for the women.
“This is the first time we’ve had success like this (in the two-plus years of the program),” ENMU track coach Eric Boll said. “We’re going to build off that. The team really came together.”
ENMU men won three events — Orlando Sanchez in the 3,000 steeplechase, Zach Gerleve in javelin and Warren Nuchols in the hammer. The Greyhounds took three places in shot put and javelin, and two in discus.
For the women, Rachel Loya posted the only event win with a throw of 112-1 in javelin. The Zias earned five places in discus, three in javelin and two each in shot put and hammer.
