The OC men’s track and field team placed fourth at the NCCAA Indoor Championships and 10th at the national outdoor meet this season.
The Eagles had a pair of runner-up finishers indoors – Brennym Kaelin in the 3,000 meters and the 4x400-meter relay team.
Landon Huslig took third in the 55-meter hurdles, and the Eagles also placed third in the distance medley relay.
Roberto Diaz finished fourth in the 3,000 and Ryan Lutterloh placed fifth in the 800.
At outdoor nationals, Huslig placed second in the 400-meter hurdles, then anchored the Eagles to a runner-up showing in the 4x400-meter relay. Zuercher took second in the 10,000 meters.
