Men's Outdoor Track & Field - Fri, Mar. 17, 2017

WINFIELD, Kan. – The Southwestern College men's track and field program opened its 2017 outdoor schedule with the first of two home meets Thursday afternoon. The Moundbuilders produced one automatic national qualifier at the Southwestern Invitational, which took place on the Helmer Family Track inside Richard L. Jantz Stadium.

Junior Tomunci Whitfield qualified for his first NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championship, and did so in the 100 Meter Dash where he posted a time of 10.63, and qualified for the national championship under the 'A' standard. His time was good for a runner-up finish in the event. Whitfield is now assured of a spot in the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championship, which is scheduled for May 25-27 at Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium in Gulf Shores, Ala.

Freshman Zach Gray led Southwestern's throwers in the meet. The Wills Point, Texas, native posted a pair of personal-best marks in the shot put and discus throws. Gray's best shot put effort measured 14.56m (47'9.25") and was good for a fifth-place finish. It also came up less than a full meter short of a 'B' qualifying mark. He also posted a mark of 45.33m (148'9") in the Discus, and finished eighth.

After taking a week off for Spring Break, Southwestern will return to action on April 1, traveling to Arkansas City for the Cowley Invitational.
