Edwardsville, Ill. - On the third and final day of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics' Men's Track and Field National Championship, the Shorter College Hawks finished overall 10th in the nation with 28 total points. Azusa Pacific finished in first with 61 points.

The Hawks had a strong showing on the final day with Nick Dodson taking the highest placing for Shorter, coming in second place in the 400 meter hurdles with a time of 51.53.

Remy Charpentier took third in the nation in the 800 meter run with a time of 1:51.90. Shaun Kennedy took eighth in the 200 meter dash in 22.17 seconds, and Martin Hernandez started the day out for Shorter, also taking eighth, with a time of 2:31:37 in the full marathon.

Jerad Godsave had a strong showing in the 1500 meter with a time of 4:00.83, good enough for 11th place.

"I couldn't be prouder of this team," said head coach Scott Byrd. "For a second year group to perform the way these guys did is unheard of. They all have tremendous heart and give an exceptional effort. Next year, we plan to come back and perform to an even higher standard."
