WORCESTER, Mass.—Junior Dominic Esposito (Massapequa, N.Y.) posted three top-five finishes and set a pair of school records at the second day of the Holy Cross Decathlon on Thursday afternoon. He broke his own record in the pole vault for the third time this season, and shattered his own program mark by over 500 points, finishing fifth overall and first among Division III participants with 3,167 points to qualify for both the NCAA New England Championships and ECAC Championships for the third straight year.
Esposito opened the day by coming in fifth with a time of 16.38 in the 110-meter hurdles. He was seventh with a throw of 103-feet, 9-inches in the discus, and then bettered his own school record by four inches, clearing 11-feet, 11.75-inches to come in ninth in the high jump.
Esposito saved his two best finishes of the two-day event for his final two events. He came in fourth with a toss of 151-feet, 4-inches in the javelin, and then won the 15000-meter run by nearly 18 seconds with a time of 4:32.98.
