Bogle Bests Own School Record in the 60m Hurdles at the Don Kirby Elite
Feb. 9, 2013
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Junior Demoye Bogle topped his own school record in the 60m hurdles Friday evening at the Don Kirby Elite Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M., crossing the finish line in a time of 7.71 seconds to take home first place.
The winning time – an Albuquerque Convention Center facility record – places the Huber Heights, Ohio, native in the Top 5 nationally in the event. Bogle’s previous school record of 7.76 was set at the Don Kirby Elite last season.
Senior Chris Fallon was the lone Buckeye representative at the prestigious Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., Friday evening. Competing in the mile invitational, Fallon turned in a personal-best time of 3:59.37 to finish fourth overall. The PR by Fallon places the Copley, Ohio, native fourth on the all-time list at Ohio State and ninth overall in Division I this season. Unattached competitor Riley Masters won the race in 3:56.25.
"This is a pretty special time for Chris," Brice Allen, distance coach for the Buckeyes said. "He is just the 290th American to ever break the 4-minute mile and his time is currently the 12th best in the country. Those are both very special accomplishments and we are proud of Chris."
Other Buckeye highlights from Albuquerque:
Fifth place went to freshman Champ Page in a collegiate-best time of 47.57. Unattached competitor Jarrin Solomon claimed first place in 46.23.
