Blue Devils Break School Records at IC4A Championships

The Central Connecticut State University men's track and field competed in the IC4A Championships on Saturday to finish indoor competition for 2010. Freshman Mohamed Hrezi and the Blue Devil Distance Medley Relay team both broke school records this afternoon.

Hrezi set a new school record in the indoor 800 meters, finishing 24th with a time of 1:53.14. He placed sixth in his heat, but failed to qualify for Sunday's finals. Hrezi broke the 18 year old record of 1:53.40 set by Ralph Wolfendale in 1992.

The DMR team of junior Shawn Buchanan and sophomores Sam Alexander, Jeremy Schmid and Michael Waterbury also broke a CCSU record today. The squad finished 22nd at the championships in a time of 10:15.00 to set the new school mark.

Sophomore Rashad Williams was the only Blue Devil to compete in the field on Saturday. He set a new personal best in the event. Freshman Aaron Radden, the Northeast Conference and New England Champion in the 200 meter dash, qualified for Sunday's final but was disqualified for stepping out of the lane.

Central Connecticut will continue the season with outdoor track and field competition beginning in April.
