OCU Track and Field Off and Running at Cedarville Invitational

CEDARVILLE, OH - The inaugural OCU Track and Field season got underway on Friday at Cedarville University and the Trailblazers made a good impression.

Two OCU athletes made a splash on day one of the event.  Freshman sensation, Brooke Gardner, finished in 8th place in the mile run with a time of 5:34.89.

Sophomore Steven Funk leaped himself to a 7th place finish in the long jump.  Funk jumped 18 feet, 6.5 inches to mark his place in the OCU record books.

OCU gets back to business next weekend as they travel to Ohio Wesleyan University to compete in the OWU Open.
