UNIVERSITY CENTER, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University men's track and field team closed out the SVSU Jets Pizza Invitational Saturday, Jan. 27, in University Center, Mich.

Senior Leighton Antonio (Hudson, Ohio-Hudson) also had a good day with the sprints crew, placing second in both the 60m and 200m dash.

Senior Mitch Lenneman (River Falls, Wis.-River Falls) put together an impressive mile time of 4:14.03, nearly missing his career mark to take first place in the event.
