Reid wins triple jump on final day of Alabama relays

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The No. 22 Alabama men's track and field team completed its first weekend of outdoor competition Sunday at the Alabama Relays.

The Crimson Tide continued to ease into the 2011 outdoor season with a mostly quiet day at the Alabama Relays. Sunday saw mostly field competitions, in which the Tide men did not compete in with the exception of Jonathan Reid. The freshman took home the title in the triple jump after posting a 49-3.5.

"I'm really pleased with how well Jonathan Reid performed," UA head coach Harvey Glance said. "We have not had much time to practice transitioning from indoor to outdoor and Reid did an outstanding job making the transition and winning the triple jump. I am really proud of his performance."

Alabama also fielded two teams in the 4x400m Relay. The Crimson Tide A team comprised of Dwayne Extol, Joel Lynch, Fred Samoei and Bobby Onyeukwu finished second in the event, just behind crosstown rival Stillman, with a 3:15.35, while the B team of Kyle Hester, Michael Niezgoda, Terrell Mickens and Nicholas Hayes finished eighth in the competition with a 3:27.05.

The Crimson Tide men's team will travel to Gainesville, Fla., next weekend to take part in the 67th Annual Pepsi Florida Relays hosted by the University of Florida. The event will be held at James G. Pressly Stadium on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2.
