Deysel, Teixeira Shatter Program Javelin Records at Collegiate Invitational

CORAL GABLES Fla. – The Miami Hurricanes’ throwers led the team to multiple historic performances at the Hurricane Collegiate Invitational on Saturday. 

 Miami newcomers Devoux Deysel and Deisiane Teixeira made history in the javelin, as they both walk away from Saturday as the new outdoor school record holders for the event.

 Deisiane Teixeira placed first at the invitational with 53.98m, shattering the previous school record of 47.01m — thrown by Erikka Hill two seasons ago. 

 As of Saturday evening, Teixeira’s throw ranks first in the conference and second in the nation. 

Deysel, a transfer from Angelo State, threw a final distance of 76.58m, good for a second-place finish at the invitational.  Hurricane football’s Ed Reed held the previous record of 66.32m, set in 1999.

The 251-foot, 3-inch throw is ranked first in the ACC and fourth nationally as of Saturday evening. 

A transfer from Florida State, Milton Ingraham II earned his first win in a Hurricanes uniform after throwing 59.17m in the men’s discus. Ingraham II’s throw now boasts second all-time in outdoor school history.

High jumper Jeremy Cody cracked into the school’s high jump top-five list after jumping 2.11m, good for a third-place finish.  Cody is now tied with 2016’s John-Patrick Friday for the third-best high jump in outdoor school history. 

In the 400m, Kennedy Brace earned a second-place finish with a final time of 53.91.  On the men’s side, Solomon Strader finished second with 46.36 while reigning ACC Rookie of Week Ace Malone finished third with 46.99.

Freshman pole vaulter Brianna Isa improved on last week’s height of 3.35m to 3.50m — tying her with Alyssa Rice for the third best women’s pole vault in outdoor school history. 

Next week, the Hurricanes will travel north to Gainesville, Florida, to partake in the Florida Relays March 29-30.
