The Loras College men's track and field team won a total of four events at Saturday's University of Wisconsin-Platteville Invitational. Eight schools descended on the Pioneers' campus for the event. The Duhawks' winning list included two individuals and two relays.


Both the 4 x 200 Meter relay team and 4 x 400 Meter relay team won their events. Ryan Seymour, Josh Goerdt, Zac Gassman, and John Kawka ran the 4 x 200 race in 1:32.57 and the 4 x 400 race in 3:28.97 to win titles.


Other titles went to Sean Campbell in the Weight Throw and Chris Miller in the Mile. Campbell's win came with the tag as third best in program history. His winning toss went 53'-7.75" – a full foot further than the second place effort. Chris Miller's 4:27.95 was more than six seconds ahead of second place in the mile. Ty Wittman was third in the same event.


Other top finishes came from Kyle Wagner in the 5,000 Meter Run (3rdplace, 16:29.10) and Tim Derr in the 60 Meter Hurdles (8.67, 4thplace).


Next up for the Duhawks is the Spartan Invitational at the University of Dubuque on Saturday, February 18.
