Mannix wins 3,000 meters at IU,
Goodman finishes third
Senior Tristan Mannix
(Crothersville, Indiana) ran one of the fastest indoor 3,000-meter times in school history this weekend to lead the University of Southern Indiana men's track and field team at the Gladstein Invitational.
Mannix finished first in the 3,000 meters with a time of eight minutes, 29.14 seconds, good enough for sixth on the Screaming Eagles' all-time performance list. The win is Mannix's first in his collegiate career and should place him at or near the top of the GLVC performance list in the event.
Freshman David Goodman
(Valparaiso, Indiana) also had a strong outing in the 3,000 meters. Goodman was third with a time of eight minutes, 38.11 seconds.
As a team, the Eagles had four top-10 finishes this weekend, all of which came in the 3,000 meters. Freshman Justin Kendrick
(Ellettsville, Indiana) and sophomore Brandon Campbell
(Portage, Indiana) each ran sub-nine minute races to finish seventh and eighth, respectively.
The Eagles return to Bloomington, Indiana, February 1-2, to compete in the Indiana Relays.
