Immediately following the women’s steeplechase with be the men’s 3,000-meter Steeplechase at 7:20. Ocean State AC’s Jordan Mann will look to become a three-time winner of the event and break his own facility record of 8:52.36, set in 2016. Mann was an All-American in the event while competing for Providence in 2016.

The facility record of 4:50.74, set by Brown’s Natalie Schudrowitz, should fall on Friday night.

Shanahan, Throwers Propel 'Cats to Victory
DURHAM, N.H.- The University of New Hampshire track & field program hosted the annual Wildcat Invitational this Saturday at the Reggie Atkins Track & Field Facility in Wildcat Stadium.

Both the men's and the women's track and field teams won the meet, the women's team running away with a total point score of 212 over Maine and Bates, and the men's team holding a final score of 182 over Bates, Maine, and the University of Southern Maine.

Michael Shanahan (Dover, N.H.) broke another UNH record, wining the hammer throw with his last throw of the day, which went 227 feet, 5 inches. This beats his previous record of 223'5" which he set at the Raleigh Relays to start the outdoor season. The throw also moves him up one spot in the national rankings into 12th place, his old throw falling to 13th place.

Finishing behind Shanahan in the hammer were Edward Speidel (Dover, N.H.), Eric Brogioli (Milford, Mass.), and Jon Chapman (Newport, R.I.), who finished in second, third and fourth respectively. Speidel also set a new personal best in the event, throwing 174'3", beating his old personal best in the event set last weekend.
