WHITEWATER, Wis. – The thing with outdoor events is that sometimes the weather just gets in the way. That's what happened this week, as MSOE men's track and field had to change course and head to the UW-Whitewater Drake Alternative Meet at the Rex Foster Track Complex. The Raiders focused on field events, looking to just get the kinks worked out before next weekend.
NO TEAM SCORE
Tyler Brantner (Elk Mound, Wis. / Elk Mound) took home top honors this week after placing in the top 15 in two different field events. Brantner first placed 10th in the high jump, coming in with a mark of 1.76 meters. Next up was the men's long jump, where he still came in 15th even after two fouls with a mark of 5.83 meters.
RAIDERS IN THE TOP 15
Alex Moran (Lindehnurst, Ill. / Grayslake North) – 6th in high jump
