TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Tennessee opened the outdoor season in grand fashion with exceptional performances in the Men's Hammer and Javelin Throw on Thursday evening at the Alabama Relays.
Cameron Brown placed sixth, Deon McAdoo 10th, and Carson Frost 17th in the hammer throw. Brown's distance of 58.69 meters (192 feet 6 inches) was a new personal best in the event. That mark put Brown into tenth all-time in the hammer throw for Tennessee. Frost also set a new personal record with a distance of 49.68m (163 feet). McAdoo's tenth place mark was 181 feet (55.16m), the second highest of his collegiate career.
The Big Orange also had top ten performances in the javelin. Lucas Hadden secured eighth with a mark of 59.16m, while fellow Vol Kyle Quinn won the event. Quinn's mark of 75.30m is a personal best, shattered the previous facility record, and ranks fourth all-time in Tennessee history.
