Coaches honor Welch
University of Findlay junior thrower Justin Welch has been named the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) National Athlete of the Week.
Welch dominated a field that included several Division I throwers when he won the hammer throw at the Raleigh (N.C.) Relays. His throw of 230-feet, 1-inch not only set a school record but was also the fourth longest hammer throw in NCAA Division II history.
Drew Hargrove, a senior on the University of Findlay baseball team, has been named the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.
Hargrove allowed 11 hits and only one run in 15 innings work last week. He went eight innings but did not get the decision in UF’s 2-1 win over Tiffin, then threw a complete game shutout in a 2-0 win over Lake Erie. The 6-foot-3 left-hander is 2-3 on the season with a 3.89 earned run average and 28 strikeouts in 412/3 innings.
