The 2019 NCAA Division III Men's Track and Field Championships, held at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, featured multiple All-American performances for Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association student-athletes.
Adrian boasted six All-Americans for the three-day event, with Randy Fry becoming a three-time All-American in the 4x100m relay, the 100m dash, and 200m dash; joining Fry on the 4x100m relay were Marcus Higgbottom, Jordan Davis, and Denzel Tinsley. Daz Lawrence and Nicholas Jackson also were All-Americans in the high jump for the Bulldogs.
Trine's Jeffery Barnett placed fourth in the long jump, breaking the Trine record in the event with a mark of 7.47m.
Fry placed ninth in the prelims of the 100m dash and parlayed that into a seventh-place finish in the final with a time of 10.55 to earn All-America accolades. In the 200m dash, Fry had the eighth-fastest time in preliminary rounds and then finished sixth overall with a time of 21.33. Fry then was part of Adrian's fifth-place 4x100m Relay squad that finished in 41.60.
Adrian's Nicholas Jackson finished fifth in the high jump, one place in front of fellow Bulldog Daz Lawrence. Both cleared 2.06m, with Jackson getting the higher finish thanks to fewer misses.
Team finishes featured Adrian tied for 16th with 16 points and Trine tied for 50th with five points.
