PRINCETON, N.J. (4/5/14) – The 4x100 relay started Day 2 of the Sam Howell Invitational with a win and four individuals followed up with victories for the Princeton men’s track & field team at Weaver Stadium.

Sophomore Dre Nelson, sophomore John Hill, junior Daniel McCord and senior Tom Hopkins won the 4x100 relay with a time of 31.63.

Hopkins went on to win the long jump at 7.34 (24-1) as Princeton went 1-3-5 in the event. He was one of just two jumpers to jump beyond seven meters. In third place was sophomore Jack Scinto with a jump of 6.99 (22-11.25) and junior Stephen Soerens was fifth at 6.80 (22-3.75).

Hopkins wasn’t finished as he was the top collegiate in the 200 and second overall at 21.40.

Junior Bradley Paternostro came out on top of 45 other competitors in the 1500 to win the race. He clocked a 3:53.51 for the win.

In the field, senior Damon McLean was the only triple jumper to reach 15 meters as he captured the victory with a jump of 15.62 (51-3).

The Tigers got two fifth-place showings in the throws. Junior Scott Rushton was fifth in the shot put with a toss of 16.42 (53-10.50) and freshman Jared Bell was fifth in the discus at 47.22 (154-11). Fellow freshman Chris Cook was ninth in the discus with a throw of 46.26 (151-9).
