Storm Set to Compete at Tiffin Invitational (Preview)

PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College track and field team will be in action Saturday (Feb. 10) when they travel to compete in the Tiffin Dragon Invitational.

Storm Report:  The Storm last competed at the Youngstown State National Invite.  The Storm women were led by Gina Henley (Akron, New York / Akron HS) as she took second place in her heat of the 3000 meters, as she crossed the line in a time of 11:23.60 minutes.  The men were led by Montrell Devaughn (Canton, Ohio / Canton McKinely) as he won his heat in the 200 meter dash and the 400 meter dash, with times of 22.69 seconds and 50.00 seconds respectively.   Devaughn's time in the 400 meter dash earned him six place honors overall.

Head Coach Giles Davis said, "This weekend (competing at Tiffin) provides a great opportunity to rehearse and fine tune our technique and racing strategies in preparation for the G-MAC Championships.  We started the 2017-18 season at Tiffin; so this will allow the athletes to measure and evaluate their progress since December."  

Forecast:  Lake Erie will return to the track Saturday (Feb. 17) when they travel to compete in the Mount Union Tune Up.
