JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - In his NCAA debut, Gino Vitella finished 43rd with a shot put throw of 53 feet, 1.5 inches at the 2015 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships East Preliminaries held at Hodges Stadium on the campus of the University of North Florida.
"Gino had a chance to get some great experience today in a huge competitive environment. With all three of our athletes this weekend, it was about beating your ranking and they all did that," said head coach Paul Rice. "Gino has a very bright future and I am expecting him back here next year, and with what he learned this year, he will be even more competitive. He should be very proud of his accomplishments this year setting three school records and a national qualifier. Some very nice additions to his already stellar resume."
