Bluejay track team finds success at national meet

Garrett Daugherty earned his second All-American finish Saturday at the NAIA national outdoor meet in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Competing in the 800-meter race preliminaries, he broke the school record in 1 minute, 52.33 seconds. In the finals, he held on for a third place finish, re-breaking his record in 1:51.41. Daugherty also finished as an All-American in the indoor 1,000-meter race.

Hannah Homes broke the Tabor school record in the marathon in 3 hours, 23 minutes, and 4.2 seconds. Holmes placed 13th, followed by Brielle Lund in 17th, 3:25.18.70.

Thursday, Alex Grier again improved on his school-record 200-meter dash time at 21.52. He placed ninth in the prelims, missing the finals by one spot.

“We had just a great weekend both on and off the track,” coach Dave Kroeker said. “Three school records were broken and the kids all competed extremely well on the biggest stage of the year.”
