Eagle men’s track perform and place well at weekend meets

The Chadron State College men’s track members placed well at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa, and at a separate meet at Hastings College on Saturday.

The members of the men’s 4×100 relay team who traveled to Des Moines were Jake Gruver, senior of Andako, Fiji, Karl McFarlane, sophomore of Montego Bay, Jamaica, Lanar Newman, sophomore of Kingston, Jamaica, and Lincoln Proud, sophomore of Scottsbluff.

The team placed sixth among 30 entrants in the college division at the Drake Relays Saturday.
The Eagles were timed at 41.79 seconds.

This time was their best of the season and also the sixth fastest in school history.

The time is also the best this season among all RMAC teams.

Five Eagles men’s track members also placed at the concurrent track meet at Hastings College in Hastings on Saturday.

Jeff Brummer, sophomore of Wilcox, made his career-best mark of 22-10 1/4 and placed fourth in the long jump.

Phil Rivera, freshman of Chadron, placed third in the 400 meters with a career-best time of 48.88 seconds. Rivera’s time is just one one-hundredth of a second short of the RMAC lead this season.

The Eagles’ Glen Clinton, freshman of Billings, Mont., placed fifth in the pole vault, clearing 14-5 1/4.

Lance Steele, sophomore of Grand Island, placed eighth in the javelin throw at 151 feet and Sean Munger, sophomore of Imperial, placed ninth at 150-9 feet.
