Men's Indoor T&F Gears Up for Conference Championships at Susquehanna

SELINSGROVE, PA – The Goucher College men's track & field team was led by freshman Ogemdi Chukwu who earned first place in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 8.80 – third fastest in Goucher history.

Goucher's Top Performances:

  • In addition to winning the 60-meter hurdles event, Chukwu paired up with Xavier Coggeshall, Gunther Wallach and Miles Taylor to set a new school record in the 1:37:14 in the 4x200 relay. The same relay held the record previously with a time of 1:38.08.
  • Freshman Darby Bauer tossed up a distance of 11.90 meters in the weight throw, placing ninth overall. The mark is fourth best in Goucher history.
  • Coggeshall ran a time of 24.64 in the 200-meter dash. Taylor and Wallach followed him with times of 24.79 and 24.83, respectively.

Coach's Thoughts:

"The Gophers had a good day getting ready for next weeks conference championships. Many personal bests on both the men and women teams. While this may the youngest Goucher track & field team ever, they continue to work hard and believe in each other. If we can get healthy this week, we should have great results next weekend."

Next Up:

The Gophers are off during the week, but return to Susquehanna next weekend for the Landmark Conference indoor track & field championships.
