PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Bentley University senior Steven Long (Newton, Mass./Newton North HS) broke the school record in the hammer throw during Sunday's Brown University Springtime Open.

Sophomore Eric Kennedy (West Hartford, Conn./West Hartford HS) had a pair of top-eight finishes in the meet, tying for seventh of 30 in the 100 meters (11.24 seconds) and tying for eighth of 33 in the 200 (23.27).

This coming Friday and Saturday, Bentley will compete in the Northeast-10 Conference Championships at Southern Connecticut State.
