Brian Pankey (P2) became conference champion in the javelin throw at the AMC outdoor track and field championships on Saturday, May 2, in Columbia, Mo. Pankey won the event with a toss of 50.59m (165’11.75”), demolishing his opponents by more than three meters. This is the third time this season that Pankey has come out on top in the javelin, after winning the event at the Greenville College Select and Saint Louis University Billikin Invite meets in April. With the conference win, Pankey capped his four-year career as a Eutectic with his sixth conference champion title, but his first conference javelin win. In previous years competing in the KIAC (Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference), he collected three consecutive wins in the triple jump along with a 400m and long jump champion title in 2014. (He would be named 2014 KIAC Athlete of the Year.)

Pankey’s 10 points in the javelin accounted for more than a quarter of the Eutectic points, as they finished the meet in fifth place of eight teams with 38 points. Yang Pan (P3), running in his final race of his STLCOP career, broke the five-year-old Eutectic record in the 10,000m run by a minute, finishing fourth with a time of 36:27.61 and collecting five points for the Euts. Fellow senior Clinton Washington (P2) also finished fourth in the hammer throw, collecting five points, with a launch of 38.82m (127’04.5”). Washington added another three points with a sixth-place finish in the discus with a mark of 33.93m (111’03.75”). Murphy Affolder (freshman) and James Lidy (P2) took fourth (4:17.27) and eighth (4:28.21) places, respectively, in the 1500m run. Affolder and Lidy joined Peter Jaeger (P1) and Fred Jaeger (P1) for fifth-place in the 4x800m relay. Zach Wainwright (P1) accounted for STLCOP’s final four points with his fifth-place finish in the 400m hurdles (1:00.85).
