GENEVA, OH. – The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Track and Field team wrapped up the 2019 Track and Field Championships with a 16th place team finish and two more All-Americans with junior Danny Rosen in the 3000m Steeplechase and senior Andy Reischling in the 5000m run on Saturday afternoon at the Spire Institute.
The team finished in 16th overall, which is the highest team finish at the Division III National Championships since 2007.
Reischling capped off his historic Pomona-Pitzer career with another All-American performance as he finished as the runner-up in the 5000m run. Reischling's second place finish is the highest individual placing for the men's program since 2007 and gave Andy his sixth All-American performance of his career.
"It was awesome to see Andy finish off his career with arguably the best national performance of his career," said Head Coach Jordan Carpenter. "He pushed one of the greatest runners our division has ever seen and beat 3 other national champions in the field to finish second."
Rosen took the third All-American honor for the men as he finished third in the 3000 Meter Steeplechase run with a time of 9:08.10. Rosen earned All-American honors for the second time in the steeplechase after taking eighth in 2017 as a first-year.
"This was an awesome year for us, and a huge step forward for our program on the national scene," said Carpenter. "We brought our largest number of individuals in decades to the meet and we return four of those qualifiers next season. We didn't hit our goal of a top-10 finish, but we did have our best finish in over a decade. I love what we are building at Pomona-Pitzer and I couldn't be more excited to see what comes next for PPTF."
