Last Chance Classic Results

The final home athletic event at Hillsdale College for the 2016-17 school year took place Thursday afternoon, in the form of the Last Chance Classic track meet.

No team scores were kept, but the meet served as an opportunity for athletes from more than a dozen schools to get qualifying times and marks for the NCAA championships later this month.

Thrower Daniel Capek was one the Chargers' top performers at the home meet, finishing in second place in both the hammer throw and the discus. His toss of 58.64 meters in the hammer was good for an NCAA provo mark, while his best effort in the discus was 48.33 meters.

Merrick Canada placed third in the long jump at 6.62 meters to highlight the field event performers.

Nicholas Wondaal, a promising young distance runner, finished the 1500 meter run in 4:05.23, taking second place. Hillsdale's 4x100 relay team came close to a school record time, finishing in 40.82 seconds.
