Butler men's 4x400m relay team takes second at WSU

WICHITA, Kan. - The Butler indoor track and field team had seven top 10 finishes at the Varsity Apartments Invitational at Wichita State University this past weekend.

The men's 4x400-meter relay team of Steven Calloway, Shaquille Alleyne, Evel Jones and Alfred Larry was the highlight of the meet for the Grizzlies, as they took second in the event with a time of 3:17.88. The time was nearly a three-second improvement off last week's national qualifying time of 3:20.72 at the Jayhawk Classic.

Individually for the men, Calloway placed second in the 400-meter dash (49.84 seconds) and fifth in the 200-meter dash (22.25 seconds), which are both qualifying times for nationals. Justin Breaux also finished seventh in the 200-meter dash, while Arsenije Savic took eighth in the long jump.

On the women's side, Hayley Ribordy had a pair of top 10 finishes in the 3000-meter run and 5000-meter run.

Butler will take a condensed squad to Lincoln, Neb., for the two-day Husker Invitational, which begins Friday.
