HIllsdale - Men's Track Takes 3rd at Findlay
Provided by Hillsdale
You can set your (stop)watch to Todd Frickey breaking a school record in 2016, apparently.
The senior sprinter broke his own school record in the 60 meter dash - a record that was exactly six days old - at Friday night's Northwest Ohio Invitational, hosted by the University of Findlay.
Frickey's time of 6.89 seconds was good for first place in a meet that featured some outstanding sprinters. He contributed 10 points to the Chargers' third-place total of 93.5 points at the meet.
Tiffin took first place with a team total of 117.5 points, followed by the host Oilers, who were second with 108.5 points.
Sophomore Lane White, no stranger to broken records, won the 200 meter dash in 22.37 seconds, with teammate Alexander Mexicotte close behind in third.
Freshman Tanner Schwannecke and Nathan Jones went second-third in the 800 meter run, giving Hillsdale a nice chunk of points in the mid-distance races.
White was joined by Ty Etchemendy, Noah Hiser and Colby Clark in the winning 4x400 relay team. The foursome won the race in 3:19.96, good for an NCAA provo mark.
Not needing a provo mark, but attaining one anyway, was sophomore Jared Schipper, who broke his own school record in the pole vault with a leap of 5.10 meters. That was easily good for first place, and further solidifies Schipper's standing as a national title contender in the event.
Caleb Gatchell won the mile run with a time of 4:17.75, rounding out an impressive night on the track for the young, but improving, Charger men.
