Twenty-six Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association men's outdoor track and field performers representing six MIAA programs gathered All-Great Lakes Region honors May 19, as announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Adrian's Randy Fry was a three-time All-Region selection in the 100m dash, the 200m dash, and the 4x100m relay. Two-time selections were Adrian's Jordan Davis and Denzel Tinsley; Calvin's Brendan VanHouten; Hope's Justin Freeman; and Olivet's Noah Bailey.
The top five individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region distinction, in addition to each of the members of the region’s top three relays teams. The regions used for this award – Atlantic, Central, Great Lakes, Mideast, Midwest, New England, South/Southeast and West – match those used during the cross country season. A total of 1915 honors were handed out to athletes from USTFCCCA member institutions, which included a near-even split between men’s (951) and women’s programs (964).
