During just his second outdoor meet of the season, Robert Arent ’12 broke his own school record by .01 seconds in the 110m hurdles this past weekend at the Colonial Relays in Williamsburg, Va. Posting a time of 14.31 seconds, Arent finished in second place overall, but was the top collegiate competitor in the event. Following this performance, Arent secured more valuable points for the Orange and Blue with a third-place finish in the 400m hurdles, recording a time of 52.82 seconds. Competing in a field of 27 teams from across the nation, Arent and the Orange and Blue claimed second in the meet, finishing 18 points shy of Michigan and a second consecutive victory at the competition.

Currently competing in his final season as a member of the Orange and Blue, Arent has certainly made a significant contribution to the program over his four years. As a member of three different championship squads, Arent currently holds school records in the 60m hurdles, 400m hurdles, 400m dash (indoor) and 110m hurdles.  He has won Outstanding Track Athlete of the Meet awards in the last two Patriot League outdoor championships.

Looking to extend their championship winning-streak to three straight years, the Orange and Blue will look to Arent to continue to produce at a high level. Arent and the rest of the Bison squad will compete in the Bison Outdoor Classic this weekend at home starting at noon on Friday.
