(Cedarville, Ohio) The Golden Eagles demonstrated strength up front as well as depth, winning the Cedarville Collegiate Invitational. While collegiate meets are rarely scored, Cornerstone's 123 points topped the seventeen team field winning four events and setting two meet records.
Bryant Langdon needed only one attempt in the 35 pound weight throw to earn the win and meet record. His first throw landed behind the official in charge of marking and was certainly better than the 52' 9.75" measurement he was given. The junior made that irrelevant, sending his final throw 57' 5.75" giving him his first NAIA automatic qualifying mark and putting him nearly six feet ahead of second place. Freshman, Jon Norris scored with a personal best effort of 41' 10" for eighth.
Louis Falland used his impressive finishing speed to cover the final 400 meter of the mile in 62 seconds. His winning time of 4:20.34 was just under the NAIA automatic qualifying standard. Jared Courtright placed fourth in 4:25.11.
Zach Bourdon won the 1,000 meters by over twelve seconds. His solo 2:33.91 effort was 11/100th off the NAIA provisional standard.
Ryan Versen also scored an easy win in the 400 meters, running an unchallenged 51.05.
Logan Nortan was the top collegian in the pole vault, clearing a new best 14' 1.75" for second. His debut in the triple jump was good for 39' 5.75" and fourth place.
In the 3,000 meter race walk, Cody Risch pushed the pace from the gun, leading 2009 NAIA Indoor national champion, Josh Wiseman and 2010 Pan Am Cup USA team member, Dan Serianni through the first two kilometers. The more experienced walkers overtook him in the final laps, but Risch held on for third. His time of 12:30.53 was a personal best the top performance in the NAIA this season. Isaac Withrow lowered his best to 14:53, under the NAIA provisional standard and a new CU freshman record. The old mark of 15:29.46 was set in 2007 by Kelvin Shuneson.
