Giannettino Highlights Weekend Results

Apr 29, 2019

CDT Jeff Giannettino '19While most of the team was off in preparation for next week's Patriot League Championships, the Army West Point Track and Field Team send a group of field athletes out for competition this weekend. Highlighting the weekend was firstie Jeff Giannettino, who competed at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa. The firstie captain is a Des Moines native, and aimed to compete at the event since he arrived at West Point four years ago. The result was a good one, as Giannettinio tied his Academy record with a 2.16 meter jump.

While Giannettino was the only Black Knight in Iowa, several throwers competed at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia. Michael Renard was a bright spot for the Cadets on Friday, winning his discus throw event with a 56.29 meter throw. It is just the third throw in program history to reach over 56 meters. Teammate Jamir Gibson set a new program record with a 58.64 meter throw last weekend.

On the women's side, Emily Mikoud set a new career best in the shot put. Her 14.75 meter throw puts her at the top of the Patriot League charts.
