CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia men's track and field team concluded its home schedule Friday with the Virginia Grand Prix at Lannigan Field. The Cavaliers had a strong performance at the meet, winning four events.

"The biggest purpose of this meet was to get the rust off after exams," said head coach Bryan Fetzer. "It was an opportunity for everyone to get back to competing and get ready for ACCs. From the performances we had, I think they were excited to be back in action and be done with studying."

Chris Rogers (Midlothian, Va.) had one of the highlights for the Cavaliers, as he entered the school all-time top 10 in the long jump with a mark of 23-11.75.

Payton Hazzard (Huntington, N.Y.) and Nathan Kiley (Chantilly, Va.) finished first and second in the 300m, with Hazzard crossing in 33.37. Kyle Smith (Leola, Pa.) won the men's javelin with a mark of 214-11. Kyle King (Yorktown, Va.) was victorious in the 1500m, crossing in a time of 3:46.13 and Jeff Jernigan (DeKalb, Ga.) cleared 15-3 to win the pole vault.

In the opening event of the meet, a pair of Cavaliers ran PRs in the 110m hurdles. Devin Brewer (Dumfries, Va.) ran 14.51 and Jack Lint (Westerville, Ohio) ran 14.93.



James Williams (Radford, Va.) had a PR of 52-1.75 to finish second in the men's shot put. Scott Clarke (Devonshire, Bermuda) ran a PR of 10.94 in the 100m.

Next week, the Cavaliers will travel to Tallahassee, Fla., for the 2015 ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships. The meet will run May 14-16 at Florida State University.
