WESTERVILLE, Ohio - The Wilmington College men's indoor track and field team traveled to Otterbein University to compete in the Indoor All-Ohio Track and Field Championship on Saturday afternoon. Only four Fightin' Quakers competed in the meet and of the 18 competing collegiate teams from Ohio, those Quakers came in 16th, scoring a total of eight points.
As has become the norm for the Quakers this season, Kalvin Butts led the team's efforts. His toss of 17.67 meters in the weight throw earned second-place honors.
The next highest finish came from Pierce Burnam who finished 11th in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 8.62.
Cameron Phelps shaved 20 seconds off of his seed time in the 5000-meter run, coming in 13th overall with a time of 16:15.57.
Joe Holcomb also competed this afternoon, but all three of his attempts in the shot put resulted in fouls.
Wilmington heads to the two-day Ohio Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship hosted by Capital University on Friday, February 23. Competition will take place beginning at noon on Friday and 10 a.m. on Saturday.
