TRACK & FIELD TAKES ON OLIVET

PATRICK MCAULEY ‘19 | STAFF WRITER • After coming off a strong individual performance at the Olivet Nazarene University, this past weekend, the Wabash College Track and Field Team looks forward to competing against Grand Valley State University (GVSU) and DePauw University this upcoming weekend.

The Little Giants’ last team event was the Rose-Hulman Track and Field Meet on January 26. The meet consisted of nine teams from across the region. With an overall finish of second place, the squad scored 109.5 points. Parker Redelman ’18 won the 400-meter dash. He also went on with teammates Austin Ellingwood ’18, Brady Gossett ’19, and Tyler Ramsey ’21 to capture first in the 4×400-meter relay. With a notable high jump, PJ Schafer ’18 hit a mark of 6.19 meters to take second place. The Little Giant’s presence on the track is strong, and they will have to bring the same intensity at GVSU and DePauw this upcoming weekend.

Aaron Tincher ’18 explains how this meet is just a stepping stone in the season. “This weekend will be a good test for everyone to show their fitness,” Tincher said. “We
are still training through this meet, focusing on the indoor conference. We have done some good strength workouts that should serve us well, and everyone should be able to have a good race this weekend.” Tincher knows the team can perform well. They guys are fit and focused on their goals. With indoor conference in sight, this weekend will be a good test. Good luck to the Little Giants!
