JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The final day of the 2017 NAIA Indoor National Championships featured a pair of relays and four individuals still competing for Cornerstone. Upon completion and 10 more All-American plaques, the men finished 10th overall while the women came in 32nd. CU will now prepare for the upcoming outdoor season with their first meet in early April,
The day got started with sophomore Hannah Drake competing in the Triple Jump. She posted a best mark of 11.20m for a 12th place overall finish.
The mile was up next as CU had Colin De Young on the men's side and Audrey Tremaine on the women's. In her second to last race of her collegiate career, Tremaine had a great final kick to come across in 5th with a final time of 5:03.88.
De Young continued to streak of national runner-up or championship finishes for CU track as the freshman placed second, just .77 seconds behind the champion, in 4:13.55. CU has now had at least a national runner-up or national champion in every meet since 2004.
