Men's Track and Field has gotten off to a superb start to their 2017 season by winning the 13-team Early Hawk Invitational at Lake Minneola Saturday. DP saw victories in four events, including a clean sweep in the 100m with Caleb Walls taking the gold followed by Emare Hogan and Tanner Ingle. Equally impressive was DP's dominance in pole vault, taking four of the top five spots as Max Esperance won the event followed by Sebastian Celestin (second), Marcus Pruitt (fourth) and Oshny Leger (fifth). Tanner Ingle took home the top spot in the long jump and placed third in the 200m while Ty Scott won the high jump and finished fourth in both the 110m hurdles and 300m hurdles. Michael Fox had an extraordinary day with a second place finish in the 110m hurdles, second in the 300m hurdles, second in long jump and fifth in the triple jump. In the 4 x 100m relay, Felipe Starling, Tanner Ingle, Emare Hogan and Caleb Walls took second, missing by nine-hundredths of a second at the finish, while in the 4 x 400m relay, it was Sebastian Celestin, Jean Paul, Felipe Starling and D'Angelo Dutton taking third. Other top eight finishes included Matt Merriman in the 3200m (fourth), Jay Ebram in the triple jump (fourth), Felipe Starling in the 200m (seventh), and Sydney Capers in the 800m (eighth). DP will now get set for the Seminole Invitational at the National Training Center in Clermont next weekend.
