Wolverines Host First Meet in Program History

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Men's and Women's Track and Field teams began their spring season by hosting the program's first official track meet named the Wesley Wolverine Early Bird Meet. The meet was used as an intrasquad competition, but all results were official.

On a perfect spring day, with weather in the low-70's and the sun shining, the Wolverines competed against each other, pushing one another to solid times in their outdoor debut. Both the men's and women's teams competed in several events.

DaJahn Lowery swept the springs, putting up a 10.80 in the 100m and a 21.96 in the 200m. Nick Stenderowicz earned the win in the 400m with a finish of 49.90. Jamier Bailey took down the 800m and the 1500m. Bailey finished with a time of 2:06.58 in the 800 and a 4:22.59 in the 1500. In the 400m hurdles, Henry Miller took first with a 58.21 mark. Miller also won the high jump with a 1.83m leap. The Wolverines 4x100 relay team comprised of De'Vaughn Trader, Lowery, Darius Taylor, and Vicco Bedell ran a 42.76.

In the field, Patrick Schlosser earned wins in the pole vault (10-06.00) and the discus throw (137-03.50). Trader took first in both the long jump (22-00.00) and the triple jump (41-08.50). Kyle Smith finished first in the shot put with a heave of 43-08.00. 

Wesley will return to action on April 1 when they travel to nearby Chester, Pa. to compete at Widener University's Daniel Curran Invitational.
