PRINCETON, N.J. (2/1/13) - The Princeton men's track & field teams will compete at Penn State's Sykes & Sabock Challenge Cup on Saturday, Feb. 2 in a team-scored meet. In addition senior Michael Franklin will compete at The Armory Collegiate Invitational the same day.

The meet begins at 9 a.m. Princeton's first events will be the mile at 12:40 and pole vault at 12:30 p.m.

Other competing teams include: Binghamton, Buffalo, Connecticut Cornell, Liberty, Lock Haven, Penn, South Florida, UNC Wilmington and Virginia.

Last year at Sykes & Sabock, the Tigers finished third behind a historical sub-4 minute mile by Peter Callahan '13. At the time, Callahan's time of 3:58.86, was the eighth best time in the nation in the mile and a Sykes & Sabock meet record. He was the second Tiger in program history to run a sub-4 minute mile, joining Bill Burke '91 who ran a 3:58.70 in 1991 to win the Millrose Games. Callahan is just the third Ivy League runner in history to break the four-minute indoor mile. Three others scored in the mile as Princeton earned 21 points in the event.

Another big event for Princeton was the 3k, as the Tigers pick up another 20 points. Thomas Dialynas '12 won the race at 8:19.09 with Jonathan Vitez '14 and Eddie Owens also scored.

In middle distance Russell Dinkins '13 was the runner up in the 800 at 1:49.92.

Dave Slovenski '12 won the pole vault clearing 5.15 meters, while Damon McLean '14 was the runner-up in the triple jump and a scorer in the long jump.

Other scorers included: Derek Hynes '12 in the pole vault, Garner McCloud '12 in the triple, Bradley Paternostro '15 in the 800, Michael Williams '14 in the 800 and Tom Hopkins '14 in the 400.
