Hurricanes Bring the Energy on Day Two of Corky Classic
LUBBOCK, Tex. – The University of Miami track and field team completed the final day of the Corky Classic in Lubbock, Texas, Saturday evening.
Senior jumper Russell Robinson proved once again why he is among one of the best triple jumpers in the country, and the best in Miami Hurricane history.
On his first attempt, Robinson improved on his indoor program record of 16.48m, set at last week’s Rod McCravy Memorial, to an impressive 16.59m. The Hurricane jumper’s historic leap on a twelve-step short approach earned him a second-place finish.
Junior Erikka Hill placed first in the women’s shot put with a new personal best of 16.33m — a mark that now stands as the fifth-best in Miami indoor history.
Ashley Moore improved on last week’s triple jump mark of 13.01m to 13.15m, which puts the Nevada native at fourth in the women’s indoor school record book.
Florida State transfer Milton Ingraham moved to third in the Miami indoor history books in the men’s shot put, ending with an 18.07m throw that resulted in a third-place finish.
Freshman Maddie Scheier also broke into the program’s indoor top-five list after her performance in the women’s 1000m. Scheier earned a final time of 2:55.34, placing her with the fifth-best time in Miami indoor history.
Ashton Torns earned his first collegiate win in the men’s long jump with a final distance of 7.44m, a new personal best for the Miami freshman.
Gabriella Grissom and Oskars Bambals both earned first-place finishes in the men’s and women’s 800m. Grissom clocked a new indoor personal best of 2:07.64 while Bambals earned 1:50.27.
The women’s 4×400 relay team, comprised of Makenzy-Pierre Webster, Moriah Oliveira, Gabriella Grissom, and Kennedy Brace won the first heat of the 4×400 relay but finished second overall with a final time of 3:35.54.
In two weeks, the Hurricanes will travel to Manhattan, Kansas, for the DeLoss Dodds Invitational — hosted by Kansas State University. To stay up to date with the University of Miami track and field team, be sure to follow @canestrack on Instagram, Facebook, and X.
