F&M Set for CC Indoor Championships

LANCASTER, Pa. – The men of the Franklin & Marshall indoor track team head to Collegeville, Pa. on Saturday for day one of the Centennial Conference (CC) Championships. The two-day event, hosted by Ursinus, concludes on Sunday night.

The Diplomats look to improve on a third-place finish at last year's championships that saw F&M win medals in five different events. Several returning medalists are set to match or improve on performances at last year's meet.

Evan Friend, last year's champion in the 60- and 200-meter dash, is set to repeat in 2016. His time of 7.25 seconds in the 60-meter dash is the ninth fastest in the conference, while his time of 22.46 in the 200-meter dash is the fastest time in the conference this season by .43 seconds.

Brad Krell finished fourth in the 200-meter dash last year, and has posted the conference's eighth-fastest time of the year in the same event (23.34). The senior also owns the conference's 10th-fastest time in the 400-meter dash (52.05).

Last year's silver medalist in the 60-meter hurdles, Michael Hoffman, once again owns the second-fastest time in the conference. His mark of 8.53 seconds puts him squarely in the hunt to win gold this year.

Logan Lewis hopes to improve on last year's fifth-place finish in the shot put. The sophomore has been named CC Field Athlete of the Week on three separate occasions this winter, and owns the conference's best throw this season, with his distance of 51'-7.75" resetting the school record and extending 5'-5.75" past the second best distance in the CC.

Ryan Kozloski, last year's fifth-place finisher in the triple jump, is back in the mix this year as his distance of 40'-9" is in the top 10 in the conference.
