WILMINGTON, Ohio - Wilmington College men's track & field seniors Antone Truss and Pierce Burnam's career will last a little longer as both have qualified for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships hosted by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse May 24-26.
Truss is seeded sixth in the high jump with his mark of 2.10 meters (6' 10 3/4") set at the All-Ohio Meet hosted by Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) on April 14.
Burnam, the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) champion in the 400-meter hurdles, is seeded eighth after a school-record mark of 52.43 seconds set earlier this week at the Great Lakes Final Qualifying Meet hosted by OWU.
The appearance of Burnam and Truss at nationals will mark individual performance No. 211 and 212 for Head Track & Field Coach Ron Combs at the national level in his 20 years as Wilmington's head coach.
