Bethlehem, PA. - Freshman Samuel Courtney and Junior Brighton Dawson competed in their first ever NCAA DIII Mideast Regional Meet yesterday hosted by Muhlenberg. The young men have never run in a meet so large (360 runners) however, they were able to show their talents as there was only a 5-minute gap between them and the top runners.
Samuel Courtney finished with a time of 29.50.3, while Dawson finished the meet in 29:24.8. Courtney improved on his finishing time by almost two whole minutes from his time at the Atlantic East Championship. Dawson was also able to improve on his time from the AEC Championship to the Regionals meet by 83 seconds.
Wesley College is extremely proud of the talent and leadership these two young men show. The pair looks to continue to improve and come back even stronger next season.
