    BHSU TF: Theisen Places 10th at NCAA Championships

    BRADENTON, Fla. - Black Hills State University sophomore Jonah Theisen placed 10th Friday night at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Theisen entered the meet with the facility record as the defending national champion from 2016.

    The field returned six point scorers from a year ago as Theisen started on the outside of the waterfall start wearing hip No. 11 of the 12-man field. The Kenai, Alaska, native circled the first half lap in 38 seconds and the first full lap marking 600 meters in 1:11.67. Theisen held his ground, much like in 2016, towards the tail of the pack until he made a move up to 10thposition on the fifth full lap (2,200-meters) holding a time of 6:43.41 overall. He held his ground in the 10th position, finishing in a time of 9:18.01.

    The winner of the race was Daniel Michalski of Cedarville, setting a new facility record of 8:44.49 on the grounds of IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. A total of four runners from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference qualified for the final, led by Derrick Williams of CSU-Pueblo as he timed in at 8:55.69 for fifth place.

    Theisen concludes the track & field season for the Yellow Jackets, having competed every NCAA Championship in his career at Black Hills State including the 2015 cross country championships, 2016 indoor and outdoor championships followed by the 2016 cross country championships and 2017 indoor and outdoor championships.
