SELINGSGROVE, Pa. — Goucher earned points in three events today at the 2016 Landmark Conference Men's Indoor Track & Field Championships.

A third-place finish by Elton Kativhu (Harare, Zimbabwe/St. Ignatius College) in the 60-meter dash brought the Gophers six points. The sophomore completed the event in 7.16 seconds, which is the third-fastest 60-meter dash time in the history of the school's indoor program.

Miles Taylor (Bowie, Md./Wakefield) collected four points when he placed fourth overall in the 60-meter hurdles. He was clocked at 9.03 seconds, the fourth-fastest time in that event in program history.

Ayinde Gittens-Smith (Laurel, Md./Fork Union Military Academy) was one of three individuals to go out at 1.83 meters (6') in the high jump. Not only did he pick up a point for winding up in sixth place, he also became only the third jumper in program history to achieve that height.
