The Riverside-Brookfield boys track and field team garnered a very impressive fifth-place finish out of 21 teams at the 37th annual Homewood-Flossmoor Invitational despite windy and cold conditions on Saturday.

Top results included the 4 x 800 varsity team of John Keen, Spencer Purcell, Lewis Rogers and Dan Curtin earning third place, the frosh-soph 4 x 100 team of Otis Dortch, Mike McCabe, Jeremiah Clarkson and Marvin McKenzie breaking the sophomore 4/100 school record en route to a second-place showing. The talented group claimed second in the 4 x 200 as well, with Zack Witken stepping in for Clarkson.

In the 1600-meter run, Curtin finished second and Purcell also medaled, while Mike Hornung continued his solid field work, taking home fourth place medals in the shotput and discus. Richie Mandel snagged fourth in the pole vault.

Rogers served as the Bulldogs’ star of the day, medaling in the 4 x 800 and 300 IM hurdles, notching a personal record in the hurdles and scoring points in four events overall.
