Provided by EMU
ALLENDALE, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) -- After over a month away from competition, junior Tyler Brown (Findlay, Ohio - Findlay) opened the 2016 calendar year at the Eubanks Open, Jan. 15. Brown only competed in one event, but took home the gold for the Eagles in the 400m.
In his lone event of the day, Brown finished first in the 400m with a time of 46.76, narrowly edging out the second-place finisher. His time ranks near the top nationally, as the current 400m national leader posted a time of 46.61, just .15 faster than Brown.
The Findlay, Ohio native is off to a great start on the season, as he set a new program record in the 300m at the Holiday Open, Dec. 4. Of the three events that Brown has competed so far this season, he has claimed first in two of them, and second in the other.
Brown and the Eagles continue their season at home with the EMU Triangular. The event will take place Jan. 23 inside Bowen Field House.
