Bobcats Compete at Milligan Relays

Johnson City, TN--The Lees-McRae College men's track and field team enjoyed a terrific day at the annual Milligan Relays. Leading the way was sprinter Stephen Mostella (Winter Haven, FL) who set season bests in the 100m, 200m, and 400m dashes. The lone event winner for the men's team was the 4x100m relay team who set a season best performance in that event.

Sophomore Alan Bachman (Nanjemoy, MD) finished in 2nd place in the 200m dash and 5th place in the 100m dash. Sophomore Joe Daher (Mount Dora, FL) finished in 2nd place in the shot put and 3rd place in the discus throw. Fellow thrower, Joe Armstrong (Horseshoe, NC) set a new personal best in the men's shot put. Freshman Ryan Oakes (White Oak, NC) bypassed his main event of pole vault and set a personal best in the 400m dash to place 4th in that event.

Distance runners, Lewis Martin (Charlottesville, VA) and Matt Barrett (Douglasville, GA) both set season bests in the 800m run.

The Bobcat track team will be back in action this weekend at the Western Carolina Invitational.
