AUSTIN, Texas - Three athletes competed for Duke on the second day of
the Texas Relays and all three set personal records. Sophomore Curtis Beach, sophomore Justin Amezquita and
Freshman Elizabeth Kerpon all saw personal records fall
in their respective events on Thursday.
Beach earned his personal best mark in the discus with a mark of 128-02.00 which he
earned in the men's decathlon. The Albuquerque, N.M., native chose to withdrawal from the
remain events three events after his performance.
Kerpon ran a 101.73 in the 400 meter hurdles to break her season best. The freshman is
new to the grueling event but is catching on quickly to the new challenge.
The final performance of the day came from Amezquita in the pole vault where he
cleared an outdoor personal record of 16-6.75 and finished tied for fourth in the event.
Tomorrow, the duke women's 4x400 meter relay will compete in Austin, Texas and
several other Blue Devils will be competing at the Raleigh Relays.
