Senior Spotlight: Track And Field Darby Bauer

Ladies and gentlemen, with today's Senior Spotlight we would like to thank a track and field athlete for his hard work and dedication to Goucher College and the track and field program for the last four years! This senior hails from Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, who has participated in 23 indoor meets and 21 outdoor meets in his career. He has posted two school records in his junior year and was named the Landmark Conference Field Athlete of the Week in his junior campaign. He became the first Gopher to register a 40m throw in the hammer at the Battlefield Relays and then tossed a program record in the discus to notch his best finish at the Landmark Conference Championships with a fifth-place standing. Majoring in music, he is the son of Kate and Don. Ladies and gentlemen, Darby Bauer.
