DePaul Track & Field at Elmhurst College Invite
DePaul hopes to build on the strong start last weekend at the Raleigh Relays. Richard Byrne, Gavin Kennedy, Anthony Becknek, and Jamal Cornelious were the only members of the DePaul men’s team in competition.
Byrne championed the unseeded division of the 5000 meter run, taking first place with a time of 14:53.95. Kennedy notched a seventh place finish overall in the 1500 meter run at 3:53.85. Becknek, DePaul’s final long distance runner, recorded a 9:27.05 time in the 3000 meter steeplechase, good for 11th place.
Cornelious sprinted the 100 meter dash in 11.16, grabbing the 28th spot out of nearly 80 opponents.
Following the Elmhurst College Invite, the Chicagoland Championships are next up for the Blue Demons. The meet takes place April 7-9 in
