UNIVERSITY, PARK, PA – The University at Buffalo track & field team closed the regular season at the Jim Thorpe Open hosted by Penn State on Friday. The meet served as a tune-up for next week's Mid-American Conference Championships which UB will host. 

"This was a nice, low-key meet hosted by Penn State and served as a nice tune-up for the MAC Championships," head coach Vicki Mitchell said.  "It was quick, windy and warm.  The wind definitely made the full-lap track events tough – times were slow.  For the sprints, it was ideal."  

Several men came away with personal or season-best marks.  Mitchell Fuller had a season's best in the 100m in 10.95 and Ray Anikwue had a life-time best in the 200m, running 21.93.  Anikwue took home first in both the 100m and 200m. 

Anthony Clark, ran a lifetime best of 14.52, winning the men's 110HH - moving up to seventh on the MAC list.

On the women's side, Miranda Daucher threw a big personal best 183'8" in the hammer throw, moving up to fifth on the MAC list and won the event at the Jim Thorpe Open.  Daucher also won the discus.

Nina Zesky jumped a season-best 5'4.25" to win the high jump. The women swept the 100m and 200m dashes, with Selina Von Jackowski winning both and setting a personal best in the 100m of 11.97.

The MAC Championships run Thursday through Saturday at UB Stadium.
