(Allendale, Mich. & Napierville, Ill.) Two last-chance meets capped the final week of the national qualifying period for the Outdoor T&F season. Cornerstone's men took full advantage earning one more automatic mark.
At the Dr. Keeler Invitational hosted by North Central College, four men got in their final tune up races. Zach Yeo placed twelfth in the 400 meters in 49.01. Ryan Versen ran under the NAIA automatic mark again taking fifth in the 400 meter hurdles. Adam Duerksen took ninth in 54.56.
Under the lights, Louis Falland had a great race in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, lowering his PR and bettering his provisional qualifying mark to automatic, finishing tenth in 9:17.30.
Immediately following the steeplechase, came the 4 x 400 meter relay. CU's lead off man, Eric Schroeder had been nursing a tight hamstring and determined it was better not to run. The other three men decided to make a go if it and Falland said he's run the final leg. Versen, Duerksen and Yeo raced with the leaders through three legs before handing to a very tired Falland. The field swept past Louis in the first 100 meters, but he ran an amazing 52 second split to finish eighth in 3:18.46.
The next day, John Klumpp took seventh in the 400 meter hurdles at the Grand Valley State University Last Chance meet, running 55.58. Logan Norton finished his season taking fourth in the pole vault, clearing 14' 5.25".
