KENT, Ohio - The Walsh Cavaliers men's indoor track and field team competed in one final event before the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Championships next weekend as they took part in the Kent State Tune Up on Saturday (Feb. 16).
"Saturday's meet was a very good tune-up meet for both teams heading into our conference meet this coming Friday and Saturday," said head coach Rob Mizicko. "We saw a lot of personal bests yesterday, which is right on par to where we want to be now within our training cycles. We are very much looking forward to the conference meet."
One school record and one conference record was broken on the men's side at Kent State.
Josh Conrad broke the G-MAC record in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:53.38 as he won the event.
