*Story by David Wahl III

WILMINGTON, Ohio - The Wilmington College Men's track and field team will travel to Westerville, Ohio and compete in a five team Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) roundup. 

The Schedule: Throwing events will lead off the day at noon, followed by field events at 2:30 PM and last but not least running events will conclude the meet at 4:00 PM. 

The Teams: Wilmington will be joined by hosts Otterbein, as well as Heidelberg University, Capital University and Ohio Northern University. 

The Coach: Ron Combs continues his 23rd season as the head coach of Wilmington's men's and women's track and field teams. Combs has been named Coach of the Year, twice by the Heartland Athletic Conference, and once by the OAC. In 2002, he led the men's indoor team to a sixth-place finish at NCAA DIII Championships.

Who to Watch: Freshman Aidan Henson started the outdoor season with hot feet last weekend, running a lifetime personal best in the 800-meter run. He returns this weekend looking to better his time as he leads the lineup in the 800-meter run.  Another athlete on a hot streak, senior Joe Shuga, will look to continue his dominant season and will be competing in the Hammer Throw and Discus.
