Kirk Posts Academy Record as T&F Opens Indoor Season
The Army West Point Track and Field team kicked-off its 2019-20 indoor campaign in their home facility on Saturday when they hosted the Crowell Open at Gilis Field House.
The Black Knights competed against athletes from several schools such as Manhattan, Vasser, Farleigh Dickinson, and Molloy College.
Headlining the performances was thrower Geoff Kirk, who broke his own Academy record with a shot put throw of 18.36 meters. It was a strong showing for several Cadets including firstie standout Calli McMullen, who claimed victory in each of her three events. Yearlings Justin Young and Emily Mikoud, who both earned Patriot League Rookie of the Meet honors in 2019, were victorious in their respective events.
The competition was the first of three home meets for the Black Knights during the indoor season. The team will return to action in the second of those meets when Army hosts the West Point Open to begin the new year on January 9. Read more.
