BELL INVITATIONAL -- 
The Lutheran West Men’s team contended against new teams at the Rocky River Bell Invitational. They joined several larger DII teams (such as Kenston and Normandy) in the fading light in a fight for the Top 8. Unlike previous years where the weather was uncooperative, the Longhorns were able to compete in 14 events, in which 10 young men placed.
 
The highest placing of West’s team was Senior Shane Elkins and freshman Nick Knudsen, jumping at 5’6” for a 3rd place in the high jump. In fourth place, with a time of 47.11, the 4x100 relay team was run by freshman Nick Knudsen, sophomores Kyle Hayes and Josh Sekola, and junior Nash Hagen. Also in 4th, was senior Art Schwandt, throwing 42’4 ½” in the shot put.   The 4x200 relay earned 5th place with a time of 1:38.57 (freshman Nick Knudsen, sophomores Kyle Hayes and Josh Sekola, and junior Nash Hagen). 
 
Three sixth place finishes were gained as well. The 4x800 Relay was run by sophomore Aaron Beckman, and juniors Nick Vrabel, Michael Faler, and Brian Giguere at a time of 9:12.67. The 300 Hurdles was run in 43.46 by sophomore Josh Sekola. Junior Brian Giguere jumped 18’5 ¾” in the Long Jump. 
 
An 800 meter run by junior Nick Vrabel and the 4x400 relay team of sophomores Josh Sekola, Kyle Hayes, Collin Fueger, and Aaron Beckman both earned 7th place finishes.
