SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Mike Dohrmann and the Distance Medley Relay Team took first to lead Franklin & Marshall at the Orange and Maroon Classic hosted by Susquehanna on Sunday. The Classic featured primarily Division III Teams and was a non-team scoring event.

The team equaled Susquehanna's time of 10:48.90. The Diplomats also placed a team third in the event as Luk Olenginski, Greg Olenginski, Angelo Arce and Greg Duckloe crossed at 10:48.92. 

F&M placed two in the top ten in the 800-meter. Greg Olenginski took third in 2:04.34 while Strawitz finished seventh in 2:06.78.  Troy Harrison crossed at 7:37 in 60-meter to place fifth and Dohrmann turned in the fourth fastest with a 23.70 in the 200-meter dash.

Off the track, Vincent Acosta took third in the shot put with a throw of 43' -.25".
