Gamecock Throwers Open Bill Carson Invitational

April 11, 2014


GREENVILLE, N.C. – Four South Carolina throwers competed on the first day of the Bill Carson Invitational at East Carolina University. Junior Andrew Seay collected a pair of season-best throws and top-five finishes in the hammer and discus throws. Junior Kaysee Sullivan, the lone Gamecock women to compete on Friday, posted a second-place finish in the discus.

In the hammer, Seay was just inches off his all-time best, claiming second with a heave of 182’6″ (55.63m). A throw of 138’8″ (42.27m) in the discus earned him fourth place.

Seay picked up points for South Carolina with her second-place finish in the discus, hitting a mark of 152′ (46.33m).

Juniors Walker Selby and Joshua Suttmeier also scored for South Carolina. Selby took fourth in the hammer with a toss of 167’6″ (51.05m) and eighth in the discus (131-05//40.06m). Suttmeier, the javelin school record holder, entered the discus throw. He notched a throw of 131’11” (40.21m) to take seventh in the event.

After the day’s events, the South Carolina men are just five points out of first place with a total of 20 points. The No. 23 Gamecock women have seven points from just one athlete in one event. Both teams will look to make a move on the field with a full squad in action on Saturday.

Action at the Bill Carson Invitational ramps up tomorrow. Field events begin at 11 a.m., with track events starting at 11:30 a.m., and continuing through the 4×400-meter relay at 4:35 p.m.
