While Daniel Reynolds’s record-setting 35-pound weight throw Friday was their highlight at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s Indoor Track and Field Meet at Gunnison, Colo., this weekend, the Chadron State Eagles had numerous other noteworthy achievements Saturday.
Sophomore Osvaldo Cano of Oshkosh was the silver medalist in the men’s 400 meters in 49.92 seconds, less than a stride behind Dillon Andrews of Colorado-Colorado Springs whose time was 49.81. In addition, Greg Logsdon of Yoder, Wyo., placed fifth at 50.44.
Both ran on the Eagles’ 4×400 relay team that placed third in 3:21.53, only .36 hundredths of a second behind the winning Colorado Springs entry. The other CSC runners were Cano’s twin, Osiel, and Logan Peila of Miles City, Mont.
Chadron State also earned numerous placings in field events Saturday.
Derrick Nwagwu of Aurora, Colo., was third at 49-4 ¼ and Brock Voth of Berthoud, Colo., was fifth at 47-9 in the triple jump. Freshman Hector Ortega of Northglenn, Colo., was fourth in the high jump by clearing 6-7. In addition, Alec Penfield of Lusk, Wyo., went 6-6 and Connor McCracken of Scottsbluff jumped 6-4 ¾ to place seventh and eighth.
