Track: WHITFIELD, CREDEUR TAKE TOP HONORS AT LSU PURPLE TIGER INVITE

January 16, 2005 – Freshman Jake Simmons finished second in Men’s 5000 meter

BATON ROUGE-Seniors Walter Whitfield and Laura Credeur won the men’s 5000
meter run and the women’s 800 meter run, respectively, here Saturday in the
LSU Purple Tiger Invite at the Carl Maddox Fieldhouse.

Freshman Jake Simmons finished second behind Whitfield in the 5000 meter
run. Whitfield’s time of 14:58.01 is a personal best. Credeur finished with
a time of 2:26.50.

Scott Lowry finished fifth in the men’s pole vault, while Kyle Ward finished
fourth in men’s 60 meter hurdles.

The men’s 4×400 meter relay team of Louis Roquemore, Jon Erik Shanklin,
Jarman St. Julien and Jarvis Murchison finished fourth overall.

“I’m pleased with our performance considering it was the first meet of the
season,” UL Lafayette head coach Lance Veazey said. “However, I’m not
satisfied. We still have plenty of work to do over the next couple of weeks.”

Shanklin and Kade Slaughter finished fourth and seventh, respectively, in
the men’s 200 meter dash. Shanklin finished with a time of 22.40, while
Slaughter finished at 22.74.

Derek Richardson finished fifth in the men’s long jump with a distance of 23-
10.00.

“Guys like Walter and Jake have really been working hard and it showed,”
Veazey added. “I’m happy to get the first meet out of the way.”

Three Cajuns finished in the top 10 of the women’s 400 meter dash. Rose
Wilson finished sixth with a time of 1:01.38, followed by Ashley Brooks in
seventh with a time of 1:01.41. Jamie Blue finished 10th with a time of
1:01.84.

“You never really know what to expect since the athletes have been away on
break for four weeks. It was good to see the freshman and newcomers get some
experience and compete.”

Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns men’s and women’s indoor track teams will return
to action Friday, Jan. 28, when they travel to Baton Rouge to compete in the
LSU Bayou Bengal Invitational.
