Robinson wins Texas Invitational long jump crown
AUSTIN — Roscoe Robinson was victorious in the long jump for the second consecutive meet and he led UTSA at Saturday's Texas Invitational.
The senior from Huntsville, Mo., once again surpassed the 25-foot barrier when broke the sand in a wind-aided 25-4 ¾ (7.74m). That was nearly a foot better than runner-up Nicholas DiMartino of Cal State Northridge and his winning leap came on his sixth and final attempt of the afternoon.
Meanwhile, Joshua Smith clocked a season-best time of 51.44 en route to a third-place performance in the 400-meter hurdles and he finished as the second-fastest collegian. All-America teammate Keyunta Hayes clocked a 50.93 in winning the event as an unattached athlete. Hayes is redshirting this season.
The Roadrunners' 1,600m relay quartet of Smith, Christopher Hall, Jumarcus Shelvin and James Pailin also picked up a bronze medal after circling the Mike A. Myers Stadium oval four times in a season-best 3:10.06.
UTSA will return to Austin next Saturday, April 20, for the Longhorns Invitational.
