LYNCHBURG, Va. – Guilford College's men's track and field teams had four entries in Friday's invitational portion of the Dr. Jack Toms Alumni Track & Field Invitational hosted by Lynchburg College.

Sophomore Juwan Houston narrowly missed breaking his own 110-meter hurdles mark set last week. He placed seventh in the 26-man field with a time of 15.57 seconds, a mere .07 seconds off his school standard. He also ran a leg for Guilford's 4x100 relay that took fifth in the eight-team race. Houston, along with Wanya Alford, Asa Bell, and Jeremiah Hedrick, crossed the line in 44.34 seconds, the seventh-best time in school history.

Hedrick soared to third place in the long jump with a personal-best leap of 6.58 meters, the seventh-longest in Guilford history.

The men compete in Saturday's open events in Lynchburg.
