Men's Track & Field, 2013-04-18

Walsh competed in the Stark County Triangular hosted by Mt. Union that also involved Malone on Thursday. The Cavaliers finished third in the event with Malone taking top honors.

Justin Eddy (Jr., Massillon, OH/Perry) and the men’s 4x400 meter relay team were the highlights for the Cavaliers as both won first place. Eddy won the 3,000 meter steeplechase event with a time of 10:09.15, seven seconds better than second place Matt Thiessen (Fr., Navarre, OH/Perry).

The 4x400 meter relay team comprised of John Schweinfurth (Sr., Medina, OH/HS), Devon Gates (Jr., Warrenville Heights, OH/HS), Joseph Mikulin (Fr., Akron, OH/Manchester), and Craig Dougherty (Jr., Clinton, OH/Manchester). The Cavs’ quartet won with a time of 3:24.64, barely edging out Malone’s team by three-hundredths of a second.

Walsh continues an eventful weekend and now travels to Columbus to participate in the Jesse Owens Classic at Ohio State. The event will take place on Friday and Saturday.
