Twelve members of the OLLU men’s track and field team will be on their way to compete in the 71st Annual Men’s Outdoor Track and Field National Championships in Marion, Ind. The event is hosted by Indiana Wesleyan University and will be held at the Wildcat Stadium from Wednesday through Friday.
The group of men, consisting of Jalen Bell, Richard Davis, De’Jon Lewis, Jesus Riefkohl Delgado, Jimmie Salas, Jonathan Sanchez, Troy Stinson, Tr’Darius Taylor, Cerrone Thompson, Julian Verastegui, Rodney Webber and Spencer Williams, is the largest contingent from OLLU to qualify for nationals. Head Coach Patrick Torres commented, “I’m proud of the progress we’ve made, taking a significantly larger group to nationals this year. If things roll out our way, we can make some really good things happen on this trip because of the hard work the athletes and staff have put in this season.”
