Mosely Earns Little State Track Athlete of the Meet, Men finish Runner-up

Upland, IN – On a cool, blustery weekend at Taylor University, the Men’s Track & Field team placed 2nd overall at the Little State Championships, 21 points behind the University of Indianapolis for the #1 spot, and freshman Marlowe Mosely was named Track Athlete of the meet for his performances.

Freshman Marlowe Mosely had a busy and eventful weekend on the track at the Little State Track & Field Championships hosted by Taylor University. Mosely kicked off his weekend by advancing to finals in the 100 and 200 prelims on Friday, then he would start Saturday by helping a 4x1 team of Gus Lathrop, himself, Kevin Johnson, and Jordan Downs finish 2nd in the event. He would not lose again the rest of the day. Mosely would win the 100-meter dash, the 200m dash, and anchor a 4x4 team of Kevin Johnson, Gus Lathrop, Michael Trice, and himself with a 46.82 second split to secure the win, and the 2nd place team spot over Bethel College. Mosely scored 24.5 points for the Trailblazers at the Little State Championships, but he would not be the only athlete scoring big points for VU.

Sophomore Jordan Downs would score 26 total points for the Blazers track and field team by finishing 2nd in the pole vault, 2nd in the long jump, 3rd in the triple jump, 7th in the high jump, and anchored the men’s 4x1 team to a 2nd place finish. Downs mark of 23’11 ½” in the long jump, and 44’11” in the triple jump are both personal bests.

Freshman Kevin Johnson also was a big part of the Trailblazer’s success this weekend. Johnson was a member of the 4x1 and 4x4 team that finished 2nd & 1st respectively, but Johnson also finished 2nd in the 400 hurdles. The East St. Louis Freshman’s time of 55.09 is good enough to qualify him for the NJCAA National Meet in Hutchinson, Kansas, despite very tough conditions.

Other Trailblazers cashing in points included: sophomore Gus Lathrop finished 2nd in the javelin, sophomore Evan Hansen with a 5th place finish in the high jump, sophomore Richard Griffith finished 6th in the pole vault & the high jump, Jose Abel Cano finished 6th in the 1500m run, freshman Collin Zollman finished 6th in the steeple chase in a new personal best of 10:12, sophomore Stoney Prowell finished 7th in the 400m dash, and sophomore Ezra Griffith finished 7th in the 400 hurdles.

The Trailblazer track & field team will return to action May 5th-6th at the Region XII Outdoor Championships hosted by Vincennes University! Be sure to come out and support your Trailblazers!
