EMPORIA, Kan. – The Fort Hays State men’s track and field team placed fifth at the 2022 MIAA Outdoor Championship with 73 team points after picking up three All-MIAA honors and breaking one school record on Sunday (May 8).

The 4x400m relay team of Hayden Albright, Jack Pakkebier, Nolan Churchman and Ethan Lang combined for a school-record time of 3:11.06 to wrap up the day with a second-place finish and a spot on the All-MIAA podium.

Churchman and Lang also picked up All-MIAA status in individual events, with Churchman finishing second in the 400m dash with a personal-best provisional time of 47.30. Lang posted a third-place finish in the 800m run finals with a time of 1:52.54.

The Tigers racked up 15 team points in that 800m race after Aaron Mangan placed fourth with a time of 1:52.99 and Trever Medina finished fifth after crossing the line in 1:54.25.

Fort Hays State also picked up team points in three field events on Sunday. Dayton Williams finished fifth in the high jump after clearing the 6-6 bar, while Xavier Robinson was also fifth in the triple jump with a top leap of 48-0. David Enns cleared the provisional threshold in the javelin with a personal-best toss of 208-9, good for seventh place and two team points.

For the week, Fort Hays State had four All-MIAA performances including Ryan Stanley’s third-place finish in the pole vault on Saturday.
