Men's DMR (Track & Field)

The men's distance medley relay team posted a third place finish for All-American honors.

The team was made of senior Dante Carter (Las Vegas, Nev.), junior Dueth Vassell (Denver, Colo.), sophomore Devundrick Walker (Aurora, Colo.) and junior Derrick Williams (Columbia Falls, Mont.).

The same group was runner-up in 2015 and recorded a third place finish in 2017. The Pack ran a 9:42.61 race to finish a little over two seconds behind a photo finish between Western Oregon and Adams State. Both those teams ran a 9:40.15 and after a long review, Western Oregon was crowned champions.

The Pack were fourth after the 1200m leg, ran by Carter and remained fourth after Vassell's time in the 400. Walker posted a 1:49.90 in the 800m portion of the race, which would be a PR in an open 800m race.

The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference 800m champion's time lifted the Pack into first place with just the anchor leg of 1600m. Williams ran a respectable 4:04.68 mile, but the final runners for the Wolves of WOU and ASU were a few seconds faster to pass Williams with about 100m left in the race.
