The Jayhawk Track & Field teams were in action on Friday at Grand Valley State University.
Friday was a good day to run with fair winds and mild temperatures and Kyler Dean (Vicksburg) and Zach Pray (Fruitport) delivered amazing performances. Dean raced to a new school record in the Steeple Chase, beating his previous best by 37 seconds and hitting the qualifying standard to punch his ticket to the NJCAA National Championships in Hobbs, NM. Pray used a lean at the finish line of the 200m to break his own school record by .33 seconds and meet the qualifying standards for the Nationals also. Overall MCC has now qualified in 4 events for the Nationals. In addition to the Steeple Chase and the 200M, they previously qualified in the Hammer Throw and the Pole Vault.
Next up will be the NJCAA Region XII Championships at Davenport University starting on Friday, 4/28.
