HADLEY, Mass. - Senior Agbon Edomwonyi and freshman Andrew McCraken of the Wesleyan University men's outdoor track and field team were named to the 2016 All-NESCAC team, as announced by the league office Tuesday.

The top three finishers in each event during the NESCAC Championship receive all-conference recognition. The Cardinals placed seventh overall in the championship meet, which was hosted by Amherst College Saturday.

Edomwonyi took second in the discus throw with a toss of 45.04 meters. It was his second all-conference selection of his career after placing third in the shot put a year ago (14.83m).

McCraken continued his excellent freshman year and placed third in the pole vault, clearing 4.40 meters.

Wesleyan returns to the track this weekend for the two-day New England Division III Championships, hosted by Springfield College beginning Friday, May 6.
