Doane University claimed team titles at the 2018 Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Sioux City, Iowa. The two-day event took place Elwood Olsen Stadium on the Morningside College campus the last two days (May 4-5, 2018).
The Doane women scored 215 points, while the Doane men tallied 237 points. The Hastings women and Northwestern men placed second with 161 and 116 points each. Nathan Houser and Isaiah Brown were the highlights of Midland University’s performances over the weekend at the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) Outdoor Track & Field Championships. They both won their respective events as the Warriors had ten individual placings in the top eight, which qualify them for GPAC All-Conference team which will be officially released later this week. Houser won the men’s hammer throw on Friday with a toss of 195′ 8″ while Brown won the men’s pole vault, clearing 16′ 0.75″ on the first day of the meet as well. Brown’s height was not only a personal best but also set a new Midland school-record. Next up for the Warriors is the Concordia Last Chance meet on May 11, in Seward, Nebraska. It’ll be their last opportunity to qualify for or improve their standings heading into the NAIA Outdoor National Championships which take place later in the month, May 24-26 in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
