AMES, Iowa -- The Gophers opened the 2014 Iowa State Classic on Friday afternoon with a pair of individual titles at the nationally renowned meet.
Siegmeier, who set a new personal record two weeks ago in Ames, matched the feat with a height of 5.35 meters (17-06.50 ft.) on Friday night at the Iowa State Classic. The winning height by the Gophers senior was more than 0.2 meters -- nearly eight inches -- higher than the runner-up.
Meanwhile, Lehman posted another win in the weight throw for the Gophers, leading the pack with a toss of 22.05 meters (72-04.25 ft.). Lehman, who set a new school record two weeks ago at the Bill Bergan Invitational, dominated the competition with runner-up Justin Baker from Northern Iowa hitting 18.91 meters (62-00.50 ft.).
The Gophers return to action on Saturday in Ames as well as at the Washington Husky Classic in Seattle.
