Just like the day before, day two of the Torrin Lawrence Memorial track meet was similar to day one in terms of success. Standout sprinter, Matthew Boling easily took command of his race, two Georgia school records in men’s high jump and men’s 1500-meter race were broken, and the women’s team found success in multiple events.
In the first heat of the men’s 100m, the crowd at Spec Towns Track could literally watch as Boling ran away with a win. UGA’s press release said”
“[He] was the wind legal national leader in the 100m coming into the meet and left with another solid performance on the straightaway. Boling ran a smooth 10.05 to grab top honors,”
“Senior Darius Carbin, a native of San Jose, Calif., had not set a fresh personal record in the high jump since the 2019 NCAA Outdoor Championships until he exploded for a school record on his home track to win on the meet’s second day…Several events before that, another school record came in the middle distances with senior Sam Bowers knocking down an 18-year-old time as he won the 1500 meters by eight seconds. The Milton, Ga., native established a fresh UGA No. 1 time in the mile during the indoor season.”
In addition, we were able to observe dominant performances in women’s shot put and 1500 meter race. UGA reported
“Junior Ana da Silva posted her top career series in the shot put to win her third meet of the year and place in the top two for the fifth time in 2022 outdoors… [and] While it was not a career best for the Lady Bulldog top finisher in the 1500m, it was a brilliant move by sophomore Charlotte Augenstein on the final straightaway to clinch the victory. Sitting in the third position with 50 meters left, Augenstein locked on the inside rail and shot past the eventual second and third-place finishers to clinch the victory…”
The Dawgs were able to find success in multiple other events this invitational as well. The men’s 400 won by Elija Godwin, women’s javelin by Julia Harisay, men’s javelin by Ahmed Magour, the men’s 4x400m relay.
