Hamilton College men's track & field athletes Lucas Wright '21 and Sam Robinson '20 participated in the 2019 Army West Point Twilight Meet at Army's Shea Stadium on Thursday.

In a meet primarily filled with NCAA Division I participants, Wright won the 800-meter run in a field that included 43 athletes. His time of 1:50.51 is the best time in Division III this season, shaving 1.25 seconds off his season-best time achieved at Lock Haven University's Last Chance Qualifier just five days ago.

Robinson posted a time of 11.33 seconds and won the second heat of the 100-meter dash. His performance was the fifth-best time out of 12 sprinters in the event. He qualified for the 100-meter final but did not compete.

Hamilton heads to the 2019 All-Atlantic Region Track & Field Conference Outdoor Championships at SUNY Cortland on May 15 and 16.
