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.
