BERKELEY, Calif. -- The University of Michigan men's track and field team recorded 145 points to finish in second place behind California (161) and defeat Virginia (93) in a triangular meet on Saturday (April 6) at Edwards Stadium. The Wolverines were ahead by four points with two events remaining, but could not hold on as Cal won the discus and triple jump.

Seven of those points came from junior/sophomore Cody Riffle (Toledo, Ohio/St. John's Jesuit), who won the shot put with a school-record setting mark of 18.68 meters (61-3.50). Riffle snapped a 41-year old record of 60-11.75, which was previously set by Steve Adams in 1972.

The 4x100 relay team, which consisted of junior Justin Clarke (Flint, Mich./Southwestern), fifth-year senior Matthew Campbell (Rochester, Mich./Rochester), senior Aaron Taylor (Rochester Hills, Mich./Rochester Adams) and sophomore/freshman Codie Nolan (Morenci, Mich./Adrian) took first place.

Clark also took second in the 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash with a times of 10.75 and 21.87, respectively.

Junior Ali Arastu (Northville, Mich./Northville) took home top honors in the 400-meter hurdles after stopping the clock at 51.61.

A small group of Wolverines will be back in action next weekend when they travel to Chapel Hill, N.C. for the Joe Hilton Invitational on Saturday, April 13 at 10 a.m.
