LINCOLN, Neb.  – The No. 7 Minnesota men’s track and field team picked up an individual title and recorded two personal records on Friday, including Jon Lehman’s winning toss  of 20.79 meters in the weight throw, at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational.

In the Gophers’ only event of the day, Lehman matched his personal best (and tied for the fourth-best performance in Minnesota indoor history) while also posting the second best throw in the Big Ten this season and the fourth best among the Division I ranks.

Minnesota had three of the top six performances in the event on Friday as Micah Hegerle finished fourth in the event with a throw of 20.15 meters – the senior’s top throw so far this season. Sophomore Justin Barber also recorded a personal record on Friday, marking a throw of 19.43 meters to finish sixth while Quentin Mege came in 12th with a throw of 18.09 meters.

Complete results will be posted on Gophersports.com when they become available.

The No. 7 Gophers return to action on Saturday at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational with four Gophers competing in the shot put. Another contingency of Minnesota field competitors will participate in the pole vault on Saturday at the Thundering Herd Classic in Fargo, N.D.
