CEDARVILLE, Ohio -- A school record and six wins highlighted the Lindsey Wilson men's track & field team's day at the Cedarville (Ohio) Collegiate Indoor Invitational at Doden Fieldhouse.
Lindsey Wilson finished the one-day event with 88 team points -- good enough for fourth place in the eight-team field.
Dante Johnson produced the Blue Raiders' lone school record and recorded a win in the 55-meter hurdles. Johnson qualified for the finals with a school-record 7.82 seconds during one of the preliminary races. He secured the team's second win of the day by breaking the tape in 7.84 seconds -- a hundredth of a second in front of second place -- in the finals.
Josh Kles secured the Blue Raiders first win with a throw of 48 feet and nine inches (14.86 meters) in the shot put. Kles all but lapped the field in the event, winning by more than five feet to secure the 10 points.
Johnson teamed with Austin Armstrong, Josh Corral and Greg Hayes to win the 4x200 meter relay. The Blue Raiders crossed the finish line in 1:34.76 to win by a nose over the second place team (1:35.24).
The 4x200 relay squad was one of two relay teams to capture wins during the event.
Lindsey Wilson's distant medley relay team -- consisting of Austin Childress, Marcus Terrell, Ben Hoffman and John-Paul Williamson -- cruised to a 35-second win with a time of 10:54.85.
Childress and Williamson also had success as individuals, picking up wins in the 800-meter run and mile respectively.
Childress ran a 1:58.98 800 meters to edge out his nearest competitor by less than a second while Williamson posted a two-second win with a 4:23.26 mile.
Lindsey Wilson returns to action on Saturday, Feb. 14 as the Blue Raiders travel to the Fred Wilt Invitational in West Lafayette, Indiana.
