COLLEGE STATION — UTSA opened its indoor campaign with six individual victories and a program record in the pole vault en route to a runner-up showing at Saturday's three-team Texas A&M Reveille Invitational.

Leading the way was senior Taylor Reed, who extended his school mark in the pole vault with a winning clearance of 17-0 ¾ (5.20m). That was a foot better than his nearest competitor and it added four inches to the standard he recorded at last season's New Balance Invitational.

Meanwhile, senior All-American Richard Garrett Jr. opened his final season with a winning performance in the shot put. He registered a measurement of 61-0 (18.59m) to win his specialty event by nearly nine-and-a-half feet.

Fellow All-American Keyunta Hayes started his junior year with a gold medal in the 60-meter hurdles. Hayes clocked a 7.91, which was just two ticks shy of the program record he established in winning last season's Southland Conference Championship.

Other winners included senior All-American Keith Benford in the high jump (7-0 ½/2.15m), senior Roscoe Robinson in the long jump (23-8/7.21m) and junior Nathan Collier in the mile (4:18.11).

The host Aggies edged the Roadrunners for the team title by four points (94-90). Houston was third with 28.

UTSA will return to College Station on Saturday, Jan. 12, for the Texas A&M 12-Team Invitational.
