The Shippensburg University men’s outdoor track & field team achieved numerous bests on Saturday as it concluded the regular season in competition at West Chester’s Last Dance Invitational.


In throws, graduate Cam Strohe (Bangor, Pa./Bangor Area) leapfrogged teammate Josh Herbster (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Cumberland Valley) atop the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) leaderboard in the hammer throw, posting a NCAA-provisional qualifying mark of 186 feet, 10 inches that marks a new season best of nine inches.


Pat Maloney (Collegeville, Pa./Methacton) affirmed his league lead in the discus with a season best of 172 feet, 8 inches that improves his PR by six inches. Brooks Bear (Mount Joy, Pa./Donegal) was third with a new season best of 151 feet, 7 inches.


Freshman Jordan Leake (Franklin Township, N.J./Central Jersey College Prep) finished second in the shot and enhanced his collegiate best to 45 feet, 8 inches.


On the track, the 4×400-meter relay of Stephon Brown (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin East), Josh Booth (McConnellsburg, Pa./McConnellsburg), Drew Dailey (Phoenix, Md./Dulaney) and Charles Bowman Jr. (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin East (Virginia)) improved its season best by nearly two full seconds in posting a time of 3:14.71.


Bowman was three-tenths of a second off his season best in the 400-meter hurdles, running 54.01 seconds, while Matt Lenahan (Hatboro, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) improved his season best to 55.73 seconds and is situated among the Top 5 on the conference leaderboard.


Eric Kirk (Coatesville, Pa./Coatesville Area) won the 200 in 22.50 seconds, while Brown took third with an improvement to his season best of 22.70 seconds. Freshman Mo Whittle (Tobyhanna, Pa./Pocono Mountain West)) won the 100 in 10.90 seconds, while EJ Dorwil (Philadelphia, Pa./George Washington) debuted with a time of 11.12 seconds that might be enough to get him onto the accepted entry list for the conference meet.


Isaiah Barnes (Altoona, Pa./Altoona Area) improved his season best in the 110-meter hurdles to 16.39 seconds, while Cole Harris (York, Pa./Central York) debuted in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 10:33.83 that also might be enough to get him into the conference meet for the event.
