NEW ORLEANS (Mar. 7, 2016) – Caltech men's track & field senior Morgan Hill (San Diego, Calif. / Wasatch Acad.) has been named All-West Region for Indoor Track & Field in the weight throw.
Hill experienced a major breakthrough at the Northern Arizona University Tune-Up Meet in Flagstaff, Ariz. on Feb. 19, where he launched the weight 12.49 meters after overcoming a disappointing first throw and foul in the preliminaries. The mark tied for the third-best in the region this winter, just .03 meter shy of second. He has since carried over the momentum from that performance to the outdoor season, posting career-bests in the shot put (33 feet, 11 ½ inches), discus (93 feet, three inches) and hammer (133 feet, 11 inches) the past two weeks, the last of which moved him up to fourth in program history.
Head Coach Ben Raphelson will lead Hill and the rest of the Beavers at the Occidental Distance Carnival/Sprints Festival this Friday, Mar. 11.
