Victor Gilreath’s UMBC record and NCAA provisional qualifying mark of 15.49m in the triple jump (also gold winning) completed actiong in the Indoor Track and Field Championships as the men’s team finished fourth overall with 123 points while the women finished seventh with 57 points.

This is actually very good for both teams. UMBC’s track and field teams are very small, and does not have enough people to compete in each event, but in the events they were in the athletes shined.

They return to action on March 7 for the IC4A/ECAC championships (again in Boston) in which UMBc has a bevy of qualifiers.
