Metro roundup: Rose men win seventh straight HCAC track title

DEFIANCE, Ohio — The Rose-Hulman men’s track and field team won its seventh consecutive Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference outdoor championship with a deep team performance over the two-day meet at Defiance College.

Rose-Hulman scored 252.5 points to outdistance Franklin (118.5) and Manchester (99) in capturing the crown. The streak marks Rose-Hulman's longest streak of conference titles in the same sport since the men's track and field team accomplished the feat from 1979-89.

The championship tally included three first-place performances and nine runner-up efforts.

Men’s event winners included freshman Nathan Green in the pole vault (14-6 1/4); freshman Andrew Okruch in the shot put (48-10 3/4); and freshman Brendan Smyth in the triple jump (42-11).

The women's squad also featured two conference champions who each set new schooll records in their . Sophomore Addie Johnson recorded a time of 1:03.81 in the 400-meter hurdles; and senior Ryann-Rebecca Montgomery won the 5,000 meters in 18:04.27. Their efforts led a seventh-place finish in the team scoring.

The runner-up performances were led by three second-place finishes for senior Andy Hunkeler. He placed second in the shot put (48-2), discus throw (141-4) and hammer throw (153-3).

In other college track:

Swift, Timlin post runner-up finishes — At Des Moines, Iowa, Indiana State senior Greggmar Swift and freshman David Timlin made great pushes for Drake Relays victories on the final day, but they had to settle for runner-up finishes in the Saturday portion of the meet.

Swift opened as the anchor of the shuttle hurdles relay squad that included sophomore Adarius Washington, sophomore Daley Carter and freshman Marcus Neely and they qualified into the finals with the fastest time of 57.24 seconds. They were not able to win the final, however, due to a disqualification. Swift came back to place second in the 110-meter hurdle final in a time of 13.89 seconds.

“The shuttle hurdle relay has always been an event that has captured my attention for the last 31 years,” ISU men’s coach John McNichols said. “We had another great team make the final this year. Unfortunately, we were disqualified. In the 110-meter hurdles, Greggmar had one of the most spectacular falls I had ever seen. He was running one of the greatest races of his life and as he hit the hurdle his momentum actually carried him into the finish for a second-place finish still. It showed track and field is definitely a contact sport.”

Timlin placed second in the 1,500-meter run final in a time of 3:45.81. He also anchored the sprint medley relay team of Carl McQuay, Arqeil Shaw and Kevin Piraino to a sixth-place finish in a time of 3:20.25.

On the women’s side, ISU sophomore Katie Wise suffered her first loss of the 2014 outdoor season in the 100 as she placed third overall in a time of 11.78. She ran a leg of the sixth place 4 x 100 relay team that included sophomore Demetra Camble, freshman Alethia Marrero and sophomore Chidera Obasih in a time of 45.31.

“I don’t know that we had one highlight event today, but we had a great weekend of competition to prepare us for the [Missouri Valley] conference championships in a few weeks,” ISU women’s coach Angela Martin said.

Indiana State senior Chris Fields had a busy day in the men’s throws. He placed seventh in the hammer throw with a toss of 192 feet, 10 inches and he placed 15th in the discus with a throw of 166-11. Senior Mary Theisen placed 10th in the hammer throw with a toss of 174-8.

Sophomore Kimyanna Rudolph placed 12th in the women’s pole vault with a clearance of 12-3.5 1/2. Senior Max Tuttle led the way in the men’s 400 hurdles, placing 15th in 52.60, with junior Jonathan Jackson right behind him in 16th in 52.70.

Sophomore Taylor Head placed 16th in the 3,000 steeplechase in a time of 9:23.46 after a big finish pushed him past a few runners in the final stretch and senior Hanna Mercer clocked 11:14.45 for 20th overall.

The Sycamores will head to Indiana University next Saturday for the Bill Hayes Invitational.

Also competing Saturday in the Drake Relays was Rose-Hulman graduate Liz Evans, who placed 11th in the women’s high jump with a leap of 5-10 1/2.
