Carrithers gets Transy’s 1st track and field title
Sophomore javelin thrower Aaron Carrithers captured Transylvania’s first individual title in track and field since the university added the sport to its varsity lineup prior to the 2009 season.
Carrithers’ throw of 54.61 meters took first place in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference championship. For the women, a fourth-place showing in the 400 meters by first-year runner Ria Keegan (1-minute, 2.92 seconds) was a highlight. Both the men’s and women’s teams placed ninth in the HCAC team competition.
The Pioneers are led by head coach Jason Moncer.
