English sets shot put record

A smaller than usual complement of the men and women of the track and field team competed in nasty weather this past week at Northwood University, netting several first places and many more top performances.
Senior Nate English had big day. He won the shot put with a mark of 16.41 meters, which provisionally-qualified him for the national meet. He also set a new school record with this throw, passing the previous high mark set in 1987 by Hillsdale All-American John Chandler.
“It was my best series of throws ever with every throw over 50 feet and two throws over 53,” English said.
