Two men’s track and field members qualify for nationals
The men’s track and field team participated in the Charles Austin Classic at Texas State University.
Head Coach Patrick Torres commented, “We had ourselves a weekend. We had many school records fall, two NAIA A-standards, more PRs than I can count, and one athlete hit the time for U-20 World Championship. I’d be surprised if this squad isn’t highly nationally ranked when the ranking begins in April.”
Significant results included an OLLU record set by Jose Zarate in the 5000m with a time of 15:09.45. De’Jon Lewis’ 7.26m mark in the long jump has qualified him for the NAIA Nationals. In addition, Cerrone Thompson’s time in the 400m of 47.41 has also qualified him for the nationals.
