Six Track & Field Athletes Earn All-Region Honors

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology placed six track and field standouts on the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association NCAA Division III outdoor all-region team, in results released by the national organization.

Three men's athletes and three women's performances reached all-region status.  The all-region team is made up of the top five performances over the season as achieved by the over 40 colleges and universities in the NCAA Division III Great Lakes Region.

Men's all-region honorees included Josh Himes in both the shot put (52' 1 3/4" at the HCAC Meet) and discus (165' 2" at Indiana State); Nick Palmer in the pole vault (15' 9 1/4" at the Indiana Division III Meet); and Trey Sykes in the triple jump (48' 11" at Indiana State).  Both Himes and Sykes will compete in the NCAA Division III Outdoor National Championships in Ohio later this week.

On the women's side, all-region honorees included Debie Gedeon in the 100-meter hurdles (14.77 seconds at the HCAC Meet); Jaclyn Setina in the high jump (5' 6 1/2" at the Indiana Division III Meet); and Gabi Razma in the triple jump (37' 5 1/4" at the Rose-Hulman Twilight Meet).  Setina has also qualified for the NCAA Division III Outdoor National Championships later this week.
