Men Capture Fifth Straight ODAC Title

LEXINGTON, VA – With the conclusion of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Men's Outdoor Track and Field Championships, Lynchburg College once again found themselves holding the title.  It is the fifth-straight and 27th overall for the program.

Early on in the day, Greg Wilson cemented himself as the best thrower in the conference by winning his third title during the weekend.  He won the discus and earned 30 points in the meet. 

Eric O'Connor and Daniel Shannon sandwiched the podium in the pole vault, with O'Connor taking the gold and Shannon getting the bronze.  Tristan Boysaw earned his second bronze of the meet, jumping 44'8" in the triple.  He also finished second in the 400 meter dash, crossing the line in a time of 49.98.

Rachad Davis grabbed three medals on Saturday, defending his crown in both the 110 and 400 meter hurdles.  He then teamed with Zachary Kezar, Boysaw, and Curtis Whitlow to grab the bronze in the 4x100 meter relay.  Kezar finished third in the 200 meter race with a time of 22.51.

With the win, head coach Doug Thomasey was named ODAC Coach of the Year for the third year in a row.

Now that the regular season is over, select athletes will head to meets around the region in order to qualify for the national meet.  The first one is the Liberty Twilight on May 1.
