(Goshen, Ind.) The Maple Leaf Invitational offered Kris Shear the opportunity to qualify for the NAIA Outdoor National Championships in the race walk. Three teammates accompanied him on the trip to Goshen, winning two other events.
Shear led the 5,000 meter race walk from the start, taking the win and getting his qualifier. His time of 24:54.90 broke his by over one minute.
Joel Leong repeated his win from the previous year in the hammer throw. His mark of 178' 10" broke the track record. Leong also took second in the discus with a throw of 145'.
In the 3,000 meter steeplechase, Jared Courtright hoped to break 10 minutes in his debut. The freshman took the lead early and was ahead of pace with 150 meters to go. Then on the final water bar his right foot clipped the barrier sending him splashing into the pit. Courtright quickly regained his feet and won the race in 10:00.23.
Zach Yeo finished the day for Cornerstone running the 400 meters. After running aggressively into the wind on the back stretch, Yeo led until the last ten meters when he was overtaken by Jordan Heim of Bethel. Heim won in 49.43 with Yeo second in 49.61.
The full team returns to action on April 3 at the Grand Rapids Open.
