The newly established Track & Field Club of Tusculum College competed successfully in the Niswonger Invitational at ETSU’s Mini Dome on January 30 and 31.
The athletes of the Track & Field Club (Brian Marshall, John Hester, Derenik Culbreath, Radarius Franklin, Antione Cross, Elvis Machado, Simon Holzapfel, and Madeleine Ledbetter) were all well in the mix against approximately 100 college teams such as the University of Tennessee, University of Georgia, High Point, East Tennessee State, Appalachian State,
Elon, UNC-Asheville, Western Carolina, Furman, Virginia Tech, South Carolina State, Winthrop, Georgia State, East Carolina, Wake Forest, Marshall, and Davidson.
Brian Marshall just missed the finals (the top 12 times) in the 60m Dash against a field of 124 sprinters. Simon Holzapfel barely missed out on a spot in the 3,000m run Finals by a mere four seconds.
