Men's Track and Field Finishes Indoor Season with Third Place Finish at Sewanee Indoor

The Oglethorpe men's track and field team closed out its indoor season with a solid third place showing in a meet which featured six teams at the Sewanee Indoor Invitational in Tennessee on Saturday.

Freshman Marcus Alvarez scored the Stormy Petrels' highest finish of the day, winning the 200-meter dash with a time of 23.88 seconds. Fellow freshman Justin Hazel also placed in the 200, finishing fourth in 24.26 seconds.

Freshman Slater Guevara took second place in the mile run, completing his race in 4 minutes, 53.7 seconds. Fellow freshman Lindsey Green came in fifth with a time of 5:07.77. Freshman Chirstopher Williams broke his own school record in the 55-meter hurdles, finishing fourth in 9.31 seconds. 

Senior Robert Goldin placed sixth in the shot put with a toss of 32 feet, 5 inches. Freshman Gustav Svenningsson placed sixth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 56.66 seconds. Freshman Deauntee McDuffie came in fifth in the pole vault with a mark of 10-6. Freshman Hayden Hazen placed sixth in the long jump with a leap of 11-10.25.

"I thought the men that competed today were focused and executed well in their respective events," said Oglethorpe head coach Kirk Shellhouse. "We had some school records and some individual event wins. It was a great tune-up meet as we head into the outdoor season." 

The Petrels will now get set to start the outdoor season with a March 3 trip to Mount Berry for the Victor Icebreaker Duals.
