Attoh-Okine, Kalieta, Men’s 4x400 capture All-American honors at NCAA Championships

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Five Wesley College track and field athletes capture All-American status on the final day of the 2018 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, hosted by the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse.

The men's 4x400-meter relay team of TySean Cousar, Dominic McAnulty, John Heriot and Thomas Kalieta Jr. narrowly missed becoming national champions, as they finished second in the race with a school and conference record time of 3:08.26. Their time is the fourth-fastest in NCAA Division III history. The exchange after the first leg between Cousar and McAnulty gave Wesley a lead. Strong running by Heriot and Kalieta put Wesley in position to win. Mount Union's A.J. Digby, who competed in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio, overtook Kalieta at the last second to take the win.

Kalieta also became an All-American in the 400-meter dash with a fifth-place finish in the event with a time of 47.06 seconds.

Roland Attoh-Okine became a four-time All-American in the hurdles with a seventh-place finish in the 110-meter hurdles. He crossed the line in 14.751, edging Storm Malone of Corland by thousandths of a second.

Tre' Johnson placed 16th in the triple jump with a mark of 14.30 meters (46-11).

The women's 4x100-meter relay team were disqualified due to an exchange violation.

As a team, the men finished in a tie for 15th place with 14 points.
