Around the MIAA

No. 16 Adrian

The Adrian College men’s track and field team had a solid showing at the Tiffleberg Open on Saturday, with two events moving into the top-five in the nation. Daz Lawrence moved into fifth in the nation with a high jump of 6’9” and the 4x100 team posted the fastest time in the nation, with a 41.16. The team returns all four runners from last year’s All-American team and are poised to make another run at a championship. Saturday’s performance propelled Adrian to No. 16 in the USTFCCCA D3 National Rating Index this week.


Albion College collected 75 points to finish fifth in the Marv Frye Invitational. Kejuan Fraizer won the shot put with a PR of 51’ 5.75". It ties Fraizer for ninth on the Division III performance list at this point of the season. Jephte Jean-Claude led the jumpers winning the 110-meter hurdles (15.36) and sailed 44’ 8.25”, good for second place in the triple jump. Aaron Weimer achieved a collegiate best (15:30.86) in winning the 5,000 meters. Kiehl Smith scored third place in the 800 (1:56.86).
