This weekend proved to be a strong showing for Hillsdale Men's Track at the University of Cincinnati. Rivaling Division I programs both on both the track and field side, the Chargers took home fifth place with 46 points.
Beginning in the throws, Daniel Capek came out swinging with a hefty, provisional-qualifying hammer throw of 55.92 meters, to take second. Capek also improved on last week's discus throw, with a new mark of 49.24 meters to take fourth. Sophomore Seth Overla also represented Charger throws, taking fourth in javelin with 47.55 meters.
Sophomore Ryan Thomsen helped to round out the field events with solid performances in both the pole vault (4.42 meters) and long jump (6.75 meters), taking fourth and ninth, respectively.
On the track, Charger's mid-distance runners teamed together for an exciting 800 meter race. Senior and legacy captain Nathan Jones raced for seventh with 1:54:47, while freshman Adam Wade followed closely behind in ninth with a time of 1:56:97. Sophomore standout Joey Humes ran a consistent time of 3:55:73 in the 1500 meter race, to win the event.
The Hillsdale sprinters also showed up to compete, with sophomore Ian Brown taking seventh in the 110 hurdles with 15.62 seconds, and senior Lane White taking ninth in the 400 with 50.9 seconds.
To cap off the day, the 4x400 meter relay, represented by Lane White, Adam Wade, Nathan Jones, and junior Levi Wyse, ran hard and competed well against their competitors to take second with a time of 3:21:03.
