KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -
University of Louisville junior Robbie Moore used a strong second day of competition to set a new school record in the decathlon Thursday at the Sea Ray Relays at Tom Black Track at LaPorte Stadium on the campus of the University of Tennessee.
Moore, a native of Eminence, Ky., scored a school record total 6,436 points in the 10 events to gain two positions after Wednesday's first day of action and finish in fifth-place overall. The performance breaks his own previous school record of 6,368 set at last year's EIU Big Blue Classic in Charleston, Ill.
A big factor in Moore's move up the standings on Thursday was his performances in the discus, 1,500m run and javelin. He finished third in the discus with a personal best throw of 128 feet, 11 inches, was fourth in the 1,500m with a personal best time of 4:46.94 and was fifth in the javelin with a throw of 159-08. He also finished sixth in the pole vault with a cleared height of 13-11.25 and was 10th in the 110m hurdles with a time of 16.82.
On the women's side, junior Christine Krellwitz finished eighth overall in the heptathlon with 4,458 points for the two days. A native of Big Rapids, Mich., Krellwitz closed the event on Thursday with a sixth-place time of 2:30.41 in the 800m, was seventh in the javelin with a throw of 94-01 and was ninth in the long jump with a mark of 16-03.75.
Friday's events at the Sea Ray Relays in Knoxville will begin at 8:45 a.m. ET, while Saturday's schedule is set to open at 9:15 a.m. Also on Friday, the Cards will have several athletes competing at the Mt. SAC Relays Distance Carnival in Walnut, Calif.
Following this weekend's events, U of L will host its only home meet of 2007, the Cardinal Invitational, on Saturday, April 21 at Cardinal Park.
