Tabor?s Eastman gets All-American honors

Tabor College sent seven athletes to Geneva, Ohio, last Thursday through Saturday to compete in the national NAIA Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Dominick Eastman achieved All-American status in the 60-meter hurdles, placing eighth in the finals in 13.69.

?Dominick couldn?t race hard in the finals because of a groin injury that happened just at the end of the semifinal race, but he did compete well in the first two rounds,? said coach David Kroeker.

Eastman had a time of 8.12 in the semifinals, which would have given him fourth place in the finals.

Emily Post placed 12th in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet, 3.75 inches.

Jasmine Peggese placed 19th in the 20-pound weight throw with a toss of 50 feet, 11.5 inches.

Nathan Vogel took 16th in the preliminaries of the 600-meter run in 1:22.

The men?s 4×800 team, including Chris Lopez, Garrett Daugherty, Phillip Magos and Vogel, placed 16th in the preliminaries in 7:53.22.

?The men?s 4×800 ran six seconds faster than they did to qualify for nationals, so that was a big improvement,? Kroeker said.

?It?s just such a high level of competition. I was pleased with how we represented the team, Tabor College and the community of Hillsboro at nationals.”

Coming?Tabor is scheduled to host the Tabor College Open Saturday, starting at 1 p.m.
