Eugene, Oregon - Senior Jordan Horn shattered the Cal State Fullerton record in winning the 10,000 meter run Friday night to highlight the Titans' efforts this weekend at the Oregon Invitational in Eugene.
The Alta Loma High School product covered the distance in 29:02.57 to finish one second ahead of runnerup Eric Logsdon of Team XO (formerly of U. of Oregon) and obliterate Francisco Vazquez' 1998 Titan record of 30:43.77.
Horn stayed with an 8-man pack chasing the early pace setter (Celedonio Rodriguez of Team Reebok) and hit the 5K mark in 14:02 or four seconds better than his best 5K time. Horn and Logsdon emerged as the pack leaders at the 4-mile mark running about 20 meters behind Rodriguez. Horn took the lead with three laps to go and held off Logsdon's kick in the final turn.
On the women's side, freshman Jameena Hunt broke another one of her school records, this week the shot put. Her mark of 42 feeet, 10 3/4 inches beat her previous best effort by half an inch.
Rain and cold weather affected the times and distances in most events on Saturday. Other Titan highlights:
For the men, Chris Epstein was third in the 200 and fifth in the 400; Roberto Archibold was sixth in the 400 intermediate hurdles; the 4x100 relay team finished second and Nathan Skankey was third in the pole vault at 15 feet, 7 inches in the rain.
Meanwhile, at the Tony Lister Invitational at Cal State Los Angeles, Damien Nieves won the men's 1500 meters in 4:01.57, Karen Bardsley won the women's javelin with a throw of 119 feet, 8 inches and the women's "B" teams won both relays to highlight the Titans' efforts.
