FROSTBURG, MD — Sophomore Randy Belt (Upper Marlboro, Md./Patuxent) won four events to earn Male Athlete of the Meet honors at the 2002 Frostburg State Track & Field Invitational Saturday at Bobcat Stadium.

The Bobcats took home the men's team title with 227 points, while the FSU women placed second with 126 points.

Belt enjoyed a stellar meet, tying for first in the pole vault with a height of 13-0. He then won the 110-meter hurdles in a personal-best time of 15.79 seconds before capturing the 400-meter hurdles in 55.01.

Belt finished his afternoon as a member of the winning 4x400-meter relay team that turned in a season-best of 3:22.19.

"I'm so proud of Randy," said FSU head coach Felix Moreno. "He has been working very hard, and I'm glad the coaches who voted recognized his efforts."

Freshman Jarred Boehner (Fredericksburg, Va./Courtland) won the 800-meter dash in a personal record of 1:59.26, wowing the crowd as he overtook two runners down the final stretch for the victory.

He finished second in the event and provisionally qualified for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships. Bouldin was also second in the high jump (5-8) and the long jump (19-6).

Junior Dante Myles (Hyattsville, Md./Archbishop Carroll) won both the 100- (10.75) and 200-meter dashes (22.58), sophomore Dwayne Dabney (Baltimore, Md./Southwestern) captured the 400-meter dash (50.04) and junior Mike Replogle (Union Bridge, Md./Francis Scott Key) claimed the 1,500-meter run in 4:15.62.

Several personal records were set on the women's side.
