Recently the Baldwin Wallace mens and womens Track and Field teams took a quiet, 50-minute bus ride to our rivaling neighbors, John Carrol University on Saturday, March 31st, to compete in the Ohio Athletic Conference East portion of the East-West split meet.
The women had a strong second place finish, while the men placed a respectable third in the chilly 45 degree weather over the weekend. I was proud to see my teamates compete hard and many individuals set personal records in their events. Great job to all the athletes!
On a side note, the mens basketball Final Four also took place this weekend on Saturday night as Ohio State fell to a Thomas Robinson led Kansas comeback late in the second half. It was disappointing to see the Buckeyes face such a close defeat, however, it was bitter sweet as my bracket had Kansas making it to the National Championship game. Kentucky is also headed to the title game as they knocked off 4th seeded Louisville by a convincing score. The Wildcats just seem a little too tough for the Jayhawks in this match up and I have them winning it all. Then again isn't it easy to pick the one team who's best player has a Unibrow...? It's the obvious choice if you can see the greatness of a happy marriage between perfect personal hygiene and unparalleled basketball skills, wait, those descriptive words are opposite. Or are they?
Thanks for reading, take care!
