Freshman Quartet Earns All-America Honors
NEW ORLEANS – Wesley College's Patrick Schlosser, DaJahn Lowery, Markael Jenkins and Johnny Crenshaw have been named United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Associations All-Americans, it was announced by the USTFCCCA later Tuesday evening. The quartet of freshman all received the honors in the 4x100m Relay after earning the bronze at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships last weekend in a Capital Athletic Conference and Selby Stadium Record 40.71.
Schlosser, a native of Montgomery Village, Md., led off the 4x100m Relay as he has for much of the season. Also a member of the Wolverines 4x400m Relay that took 13th at Nationals, Schlosser became Wesley's first-ever decathlete after taking second at the Lynchburg College Multi-Meet the two days following the CAC Championships in early May. Schlosser also holds outdoor school-records in the 4x200 and 4x400m Relay, Pole Vault and Discus.
Running the second and arguably fastest leg of the 4x100m Relay, Lowery, who is a Suitland, Md., product, was recently named the Wolverines Outdoor Track Most Valuable Player. Running the team's top time in the 100m this season (10.76), Lowery also ran the team's second-fastest 200m Dash and ran a leg of the 4x400m Relay at Penn Relays. Lowery holds the outdoor school-record in the 4x200m Relay.
A native of White Plains, Md., Jenkins is on the third leg of the 4x100m Relay and was the lone Wolverine to qualify for Nationals in both the Indoor & Outdoor Seasons. After running a school-record 6.88 in the 60m Dash to take 14th at the NCAA Indoor Track Championships, Jenkins matched Lowery with a 10.76 in the 100m Dash outdoor and also holds the school-record in the 4x200m Relay.
Making the short trek to Wesley from nearby Felton, Del., Crenshaw anchored the 4x100m Relay and ran a Wesley-best 21.97 in the 200m Dash outdoors this season. Crenshaw also holds the school-record in the 4x200m Relay which was set at the Penn Relays in 1:26.95.
The four All-Americans produced by Wesley is the most in Wolverines track & field history. Only two Wesley track & field athletes had earned All-America honors prior to this season: Chris Donisi and Matt Bundy.
