Turner hit the mark on his second attempt to replace Tim Duckworth’s 26’4.25”/8.03 meters set in 2018 and secured the team six points.
Robbie Springfield also hit a personal best in the long jump leaping for 24’8.25”/7.60 meters moving to eighth on the UK all-time performers list.

Brian Faust recorded the second fastest time in school history in the men’s 400 meters semifinals at 45.67 for a personal best. Despite the accomplishment, Faust was unable to advance to the final.
Despite their best efforts, the UKTF men’s outdoor season ended tonight with no sprinters advancing to Friday’s finals. The men end with 6.33 points on the weekend and one medal earned.
