BALTIMORE, Md. – Sophomore Patrick Schlosser won the decathlon and classmate Dominic McAnulty shattered a school-record in the 400m Dash to lead the Wesley College men's track & field team to a an impressive showing at the Morgan State Legacy Meet on Friday and Saturday afternoons.

A native of Montgomery Village, Md., Schlosser, Wesley's first-ever decathlete who was competing in just his second-ever decathlon, got his first career win in the event and totaled a school-record 6,071 points. Competing against all Division I athletes in the event, Schlosser won the 100m Dash (11.10), 400m Dash (50.03), 1500m Run (4:44.49), discus (131-4) and javelin (156-8) while also setting personal bests in the long jump and 110m hurdles. Schlosser now ranks 12th nationally in the event and has been accepted to compete in the decathlon at the historic Penn Relays next Tuesday-Wednesday in Philadelphia.
McAnulty finished 11th among collegiate athletes in the 400m Dash, clocking a 48.63 which ranks first in the Capital Athletic Conference this season. The sprinter from Rising Sun, Md., also broke his own school-record by nearly half a second. In the same event, freshman Vicco Bedell ran a personal-record 49.66.
In the 110m hurdles, senior Matt Bundy and freshman Roland Attoh-Okine ran times that rank in the top ten nationally this season. Bundy took third overall and his preliminary time of 14.48 is 3rd nationally while Attoh-Okine took sixth overall and his 14.64 in the prelims now ranks 7th in NCAA Division III.

Bundy anchored the 4x100m Relay to a sixth place finish and season-best 41.61 along with De'Vaughn Trader, DaJahn Lowery and Greg Taylor, while McAnulty and Bedell were the first two legs of the 4x400m Relay that took eighth in 3:19.38.
