A freshman jumper on Gallaudet University men’s track and field team won the triple jump yesterday at the 2010 Capital Athletic Conference championships. Darius Flowers is from Tuscaloosa, Alabama and soared 48 feet, 3.5 inches. The second-place jumper was nearly three feet shorter.
Freshman thrower Jessica Israel scored in two events to lead the women’s track and field team. The Frederick, Maryland native scored points in the shot put and discus events to give the Bison their only points on the day.
