Men’s track ends
Last Friday and Saturday the men of Oberlin’s track team traveled to Delaware, Ohio for the 20th annual NCAC Conference Championship. Last year the Lords from Kenyon took the first place trophy back to Gambier, Ohio. This year they did the same.
Oberlin has one of the smallest teams in the NCAC, which hurt when it came down to points and scoring. In some of the events Oberlin did not even have an entry. Despite Oberlin’s natural disadvantage there were some highlights to the weekend.
The Yeomen finished in last place out of 10 teams, paced by sophomore Shean Perry, who finished third in the pole vault (13’05’’).
First-year Travis Grout finished fifth in the 5000m run in 16:22.53, while senior Jeremy Lane finished seventh in the 400m dash with a time of 51.34 and was part of the 4x400m relay team that finished seventh in 3:28.90.
Next year, Oberlin will look for more people to run in the spring as they tried to become more competitive in the NCAC.
