ANN ARBOR, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) – Competing in its first non-scoring meet of the year, the Eastern Michigan University men's track and field team took home five victories from the Simmons-Harvey Invitational, Saturday Jan. 19, at the University of Michigan Indoor Track Building.

What stood out from Saturday's meet was the performances of the Eagles' freshman. Freshman Matthew Williams turned in a solid performance, winning the 400-meter dash in 49.83 and finishing runner-up in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.12. An EMU trio of freshman swept the top three spots in the 600-meter run with Tyler Ross finishing at the top of the podium in 1:20.81. Jason Ervin finished behind Ross in second, while Scott Bradley took third.

Grzegorz Kalinowski won the 3000-meter run with an 8:27.25. The Eagles rounded out their wins in the running events with a victory in the 4x400-meter relay. The team of Jay Saunders, Chris Scott, Ervin and Cameron Bolton finished in 3:18.25 for the win.

In field events, a pair of new EMU record holders took home first-place finishes. Max Babits continued his strong start to the season with a first-place finish in the pole vault, leaping 5.11 meters (16-feet, 9.25-inches). Donald Scott added a victory of his own in the triple jump with a 14.39-meter leap (47-feet, 2.50-inches).

The Eagles will be back in action next week, Jan. 26, competing at the Grand Valley State Quad Meet in Allendale, Mich.
