It was the perfect start for the German student-athlete who failed to complete the competition at the Texas Relays 2021 after scratching his three attempts in the discus throw.

Neugebauer, who entered the second day with an overnight score of 4284 points, never surrendered the lead on Thursday’s day two.

Alex Spyridonidis of Auburn, who closed out the first day in third place, stayed in that position until the final event when he finished ahead of Trpimir Siroki of Texas A&M-CC by more than 17 seconds in the 1500m to bump the latter down in the standings.

Spyridonidis managed to record a career-best with 7917 points to take second place, while Siroki tallied a personal best of 7838 points for third place, improving on his previous best from 7515, achieved last April.

The top five finishers saw defending champion Asani Hylton of Stephen F. Austin pushed back to fourth place this year, but the Jamaican ended with a PB after scoring 7671 points, while BYU’s Dallin Vorkink grabbed fifth with 7544pts, which was also a PB for him.
