It was another historic weekend for the Parkside track & field team.
The Rangers competed at the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Indoor Championships in Allendale, Mich., and came away with a fifth-place finish on the men’s side, and a sixth-place finish on the women’s side. It was the one of the best team performances at a conference meet in program history.
The Rangers left the meet with eight All-GLIAC performances, 12 All-GLIAC honorable mention performances and numerous personal bests. Leading the way for the Rangers was Nic Davy, our Kenosha.com Ranger of the Week for the second time this season.
Davy started the weekend by qualifying for the finals in the 200 and 400 meters. The next day, Davy placed second in both events. He also anchored the 1,600-meter relay, earning another second-place finish.
Davy’s efforts would not only earn him three All-GLIAC recognitions, but he was also named the Athlete of the Meet, the first in Parkside history.
