Silvester and Tryon Compete in Men's Triple Jump at NCAA Division III Track and Field Championships

Geneva, Ohio - May 25, 2019 - Sophomore Josh Silvester (Manchester, Conn.) and senior Evan Tryon (New London, Conn.) represented the Springfield College men's track and field team in the men's triple jump at the 2019 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships, hosted at the SPIRE Institute on Saturday.

Silvester, who came into the competition seeded No. 15 in the field, produced a mark of 14.18 meters on his second jump, placing him 17th overall in the competition. Tryon, who was seeded No. 13, finished 20th with a jump of 12.93 meters, also on his second attempt.

This marked the second time this year that Silvester qualified to compete among the nation's top competition, as he was also a part of the men's triple jump competition at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships earlier this season. This was the first appearance on the national stage for Tryon.
