VS ATHLETICS HAS FOUR FINALISTS AT 2007 USA OUTDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS

INDIANAPOLIS, IN—At the 2007 AT&T USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, all but one of the four qualifiers from the VS Athletics Track Club reached the finals. The meet was held at Carroll Stadium on the campus of Indianapolis University.

In the Men’s Pole Vault, Jeff Ryan tied for 11th at 17’ 8¼” (5.40m) as swirling cross winds played havoc with the competition. A week prior to the Championships, Jeff had jumped a PR 18’ 4½” (5.60m). In the Men’s Decathlon, Chris Richardson finished 9th with a score 7542 points. Despite being drenched with rain at various times on both days, Chris had 3 decathlon PRs (shot put, hurdles, pole vault) and won the javelin competition en route to being selected for the USA vs. Germany team in late August. In the Men’s Triple Jump, Ronald Carter strained a quadriceps muscle on his first jump (a big foul near 53’) and was forced to withdraw from the competition. In the Men’s Discus, Nick Petrucci negotiated the rain-soaked ring to throw
188’ 1”
(57.34m)—good for 8th place.
