Daugherty earns All-American status

Six Tabor College track and field athletes competed at the NAIA Indoor National Championships in Geneva, Ohio, March 5-7.

Senior Garrett Daugherty achieved All-American status for the third time in his career by placing eighth in the finals of the 1,000-meter run with a time of 2 minutes, 33.25 seconds.

His preliminary time of 2:26.54 bested his own school record.

Senior Hannah Holmes missed qualifying for the finals in the 5,000-meter run by just 2 seconds. She finished 13th in the preliminaries in 18:09.56, which bested her own school record by more than 15 seconds.

The men?s 4×800-meter relay team consisting of Bret Mueller, Tyler Parrish, Josh Richert and Daugherty finished 16th in the preliminaries with a time of 8:14.70.

?Garrett ran extremely well in the semis, leading most of the race until the final few steps,? coach Dave Kroeker said. ?Hannah had another exceptional improvement in her 5-k race and just seems to be getting stronger every time she competes.

?All the athletes represented Tabor and the KCAC very well both on and off the track.?
