CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman Kevin DeLoughry set a school record with a time of 54.13 in the 400-meter hurdles and junior Andrew McCracken posted a mark of 4.55m in the pole vault for the Wesleyan University men's track & field team during a 17th-place finish out of 30 teams at the New England Division III Outdoor Championship on Thursday-Saturday at MIT.  

DeLoughry placed third overall in the 400m hurdles among a field of 22 runners, and McCracken was the fourth-place performer during the pole vault.

Sophomore Kevin McMorrow earned a sixth-place nod in the 3,000m steeplechase, clocking a time of 9:38.40, and senior Jessy Carrasco-Gonzalez grabbed ninth-place honors in the pole vault (4.40).

Freshman Kyron Roberts continued his outstanding rookie campaign with a time of 50.72 in the 400m, which was good for 12th overall.

Wesleyan excelled during the 4x800m relay, as the group of McMorrow, and sophomores Bill Bajohr, Conner Sexton and Grant van Inwegen posted the sixth-best time (7:58.53) in the event.

The Cardinals now turn their attention to the Open New England Championship on Friday and Saturday at Dartmouth in Hanover, N.H.
