On this day two years ago, Matt Hollis won the decathlon at the 10th Annual New York Relays held at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island.

The senior dominated the competition earning first place finishes in the 100m dash (12.30), 110m hurdles (17.04), high jump (5’7″), long jump (18’3″), and shot put (40’6″). He finished with a cumulative total of 3,425, besting the second place finisher by 432 points.

Hollis’ teammate, Margot Rashba, took 14th out of 48 runners with an impressive 10:50.66 in the 3000m run, soundly beating her personal record.
