UB junior Taylor Woods hit a personal record to win the discus throw Saturday at Penn State's Jim Thorpe Invitational. A management major, Woods hit the Mid-American Conference automatic qualifier in the event with a toss of 48.96 meters. 

               
Redshirt freshman Don Kilian had a great week comning off the bench for the Bulls in big situations as he recorded a pair of hits as a pinch hitter for the Bulls. Kilian's biggest hit of his career came in the Bulls 4-3 victory over Big 4 rival St. Bonaventure on Tuesday afternoon as he connected on his first career home run, in the eighth inning, over the right field fence to secure the win. The game-winning homer also gave Kilian his first career RBI. On Sunday, Kilian earned another pinch hit opportunity and produced once again as he hit a RBI double down the left field line to bring the Bulls within one run in the eighth. For his week, Kilian went 2-for-2 with a home run, a double, two RBI's and one run scored. Kilian has now appeared in nine games while earning a .286 batting average and three runs for the Bulls on the season.
