Kalinay wins hurdles to lead Storm at UNI

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Dylan Kalinay won the 60-meter hurdles for the second week in a row to lead 10, top-five finishes for the Simpson men's track and field team at the Jack Jennett Invitational on Friday.

Emmitt Wheatley, Mitch Stoltzman and Ian McKenzie added third-place finishes for the Storm, who were competing against teams from Division I, Division III and NAIA. No team scores were kept.

Kalinay set another personal-best in the hurdles, breaking the tape in 8.24 to beat Wichita State's Tyler Knight. In three meets this season, Kalinay has three personal-bests. His time is tops in the Iowa Conference and tied for ninth in Division III.

Stoltzman took third in the pole vault, clearing 12-feet, 11 1/2 inches. He went without a foul until failing at 4.10 meters.

McKenzie added the Storm's other third-place effort, running 4:33.76 in the Mile. He finished just ahead of teammate Kyle Hovey, who ran a personal-best 4:35.90.

Nick Kibby set a personal-best to place fourth in the 600, Trey Thompson came in fourth in the 3,000 and Isaac Frazier added a fourth-place effort in the 60 hurdles. Sam Adeniyi led the Storm's high jumpers by clearing 6-feet, 2 3/4 inches to take fourth. He also came in sixth in the 60 hurdles.
