Williams Wins Eastern College Shot Put at Penn Relays
Central Connecticut junior Rashad Williams won the men's eastern collegiate shot put at the 2011 Penn Relays. Williams was one of several Blue Devils competing at the meet. Central also entered three relay teams at the historic event.
Williams unleashed a 17.13 meter, 56 feet and 2.5 inches, throw that easily defeated the second place finisher by over a foot.
Running in the first heat of the 4 X 100 meter relay, the Blue Devil team of Keith Boyd-Carter, Aaron Radden, Harry Lewis and Nick Lindblom posted a 42.99 second time.
The same team returned to the track later in the day for the 4 X 200 meter relay. This time the Blue Devils posted a time of 1:29.98.
Tomorrow the Blue Devils will return to the track to participate in the 4 X 800 meter relay.
