GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- A solid overall outdoor campaign came to a close Friday (5/3) at the 2013 WHAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Leading the charge for the Mustangs was sophomore mainstay, Robert Crockett (Detroit, Mich./King).
The sophomore distance runner was able to set an incredible two personal bests in the 800m and 1,500m events. In the 800m, Crockett shaved nearly three seconds off his time to come in 18th in a loaded field with a time of 2:03.06. In the 1,500m, Crockett also had a stellar pace and finished a few seconds shy of the school record with a PR time of 4:26.10. The sophomore would finish 11th in the WHAC with that time.
Fellow sophomore Akil Prowell (Detroit, Mich./Crockett) finished the 1,500m with a time of 4:49. Prowell would be back on the track in the nightcap with freshman Jonathan Rutkowski (Riverview, Mich./Gabriel Richard) in the 5,000m run. Results are incomplete at the time of release.
Jalen Wilson (Detroit, Mich./CMA) rounded out the cast for the Mustangs with entries in the 100m and 200m events. A freshman, Wilson would shoot out from the blocks with a time of 12.18 for 21st place in a field that was host to four heats. Wilson would also be a part of a large field in the 200m where he finished with a 24.02 – good for 20th place.
