DELAWARE, Ohio - Wilmington College men's track & field senior Pierce Burnam set a new school record by winning the 400-meter hurdles at the 2018 Great Lakes Final Qualifying Meet hosted by Ohio Wesleyan University on Thursday.
Burnam won the event with a time of 52.43 seconds, beating the entire field by over a second. Burnam was the school record holder in the event after his mark of 53.22 seconds at the Jesse Owens Classic almost a month ago. The New Richmond native currently sits with the eighth-best time in NCAA Division III.
The field for the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be announced on Saturday.
