Bundy Places Fourth Nationally in 110 Hurdles
CLAREMONT, Calif. – Sprinter Matt Bundy finished fourth in the 110m hurdles at the 2012 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field National Championships at Burns Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Bundy's time of 14.49 earned him All-America honors and he is the first runner in Wesley College history to earn that distinction. Chris Donisi had earned All-America recognition after placing eighth in the long jump in 2009.
A sophomore from Media, Pa., Bundy's finals performance was his second-best of the season, following his school-record 14.32 that he ran in the preliminaries. The 2012 Capital Athletic Conference Track Athlete of the Year entered the NCAA Championships as the ninth seed after winning the ECAC Championship on May 18 in a then school-record 14.52.
St. Norbert's Justin Johnson won the event in a Division III record 13.79, besting the 19-year-old record of 13.86, held by Shannon Flowers of Lincoln (Pa.). Following Johnson was McMurry's Junior Saint Preux and Sutton Coleman of Rose-Hulman.
