College track & field
Several Wolverines qualify for NCAAs: Wesley College’s men’s track & field relay teams and four individuals have qualified for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships on May 21-23 in Canton, N.Y.
The 400-meter and 1,600-meter relay teams are both seeded seventh going into the national championships with times of 41.12 and 3:13.48, respectively. Sophomore Patrick Schlosser plays a key role in both relays while classmates DaJahn Lowery and Greg Taylor (Sussex Central), as well as senior Matt Bundy round out the 400.
Accompanying Schlosser in the 1,600 relay is likely to be classmate Dominic McAnulty, as well as Bundy and freshman Urgy Eado.
Schlosser, Lowery, Bundy and junior De’Vaughn Trader (Delmar) also will compete for championships in individual events, which is the most individual qualifiers the Wolverines have ever had in program history.
Schlosser is seeded ninth in the decathlon after winning the ECAC Championship in the event in record fashion. Lowery will compete in the 100-meter dash after setting a school-record with a 10.68 at the Salisbury Final Qualifier last Friday.
Bundy has qualified once again in the 110-meter hurdles and Trader, another school-record holder, will participate in the long jump.
Potential athletes that could run in the relays are Anthony Brinkley and Roland Attoh-Okine.

The DSU women placed 44th with four points, highlighted by Omealla Gordon finishing fifth (54.04) in the 400-meter dash. Morgan Durham, who took home the bronze medal during the MEAC Outdoor Championships in the javelin with a personal-best mark of 121-09 (37.12m), placed 25th (116-02 – 35.41m) to conclude her season.
