Indiana Tech men win WHAC track meet


The Indiana Tech men's track and field team extended a run of dominance Friday night at the Farmers Insurance Athletic Complex in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The Warriors won the outdoor title for the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference for a fifth consecutive year with 257 points.

Tech's Trevor Stanley was named Most Valuable Performer of the Meet for his victories in the 200 meters and 110 hurdles and contribution to his team's win in the 400 relay.

The Warriors' Wayne Sherbahn ran the 100 in a program-record 10.22 seconds. Teammates Matt Lockridge (10.37), Kejavon Moore (10.45) and Deshon Coller (10.48) finished second through fourth, respectively.

Indiana Tech won all three relays. The 400 (Moore, Stanley, Jeremiah Ratliff, Sherbahn) finished in 40.98, and the 1,600 squad of Gairy Springer, Qadir Muhammad, Barthelomy Peter and Moore were clocked at 3:16.01.

The Warriors' other first-place finishes included Lucas Runyan in the 1,500 (3:57.62), Isaiah Lintz in the triple jump (47 feet, 5 inches) and Malik Stuart in the shot put (56-3.75).

Springer won the 400 at 47.81.

For Stanley, his MVP award capped a sweep. He also took MVP honors at the WHAC indoor meet in February.

Indiana Tech's women’s team came in third at the WHAC outdoor meet. Their 174 points were two out of first. However, the Warriors' Brianna Woods won Outstanding Performer of the Meet honors.

Woods earned titles in the 100 (program-record 11.57) and 200 (24.01) and ran the second leg of the victorious 400 relay (45.88). Teammate Kerigan Riley won the 3000 steeplechase at 11:30.38.
