UB had another fifth-place finisher at the USATF meet in June as Mike Morgan recorded 7,555 points in the decathlon, a grueling competition in which athletes compete in 10 different track and field events, including the 100-meters, javelin throw, pole vault and high jump. Morgan, a senior this year, became the first UB track and field athlete to earn a spot on the U.S. National Team. As of press time, he was training to compete with Team USA at the Thorpe Cup, an international track and field competition between the U.S. and Germany, held in August.
