Rivers Resets Long Jump Record At WIAC Championship

PLATTEVILLE, Wis.- UW-Oshkosh broke two program records and a meet record in the first day of the WIAC Outdoor Track & Field Championship (Presented by Culver's) on Friday (May 3).

This year's edition of the WIAC Championship is hosted by UW-Platteville at its Track & Field Complex.

The Titans wrapped up day one with 17 points, good for sixth in the eight team field.

For the second weekend in a row, Joshua Rivers (Sr. • Chicago, Ill.) set the UW-Oshkosh outdoor long jump record. He flew a 7.63-meter distance on his first attempt, keeping competition at least 0.20 meters away the rest of the way. His mark remains at the top of NCAA Division III and would rank in the top-10 in Division II.

Nolan Milas (Fr. • Virgil, Ill.), Davian Willems (So. • De Pere), and Dylan Gramley (So. • Plainfield, Ill.) will all race in the final round of the 100-meter dash after running qualifying times of 10.67, 10.67 and 10.74 seconds respectively.

The Titans will be represented by Steven Potter (Sr. • Oak Creek) and Dwight Hosni (So. • Cedarburg) in the final round of the 800-meter run. They ran the first and third fastest times of the preliminary round.

Weston Lerdal (Jr. • Neenah) ran a 54.20 for fourth in the preliminary round of the 400-meter hurdles and will represent the black and gold in the final round on Saturday.

Three Titans led by Londyn Little (Jr. • Columbia, Ill.) took top-eight positions in the 200-meter dash preliminary round. Little raced a facility record 20.97 seconds and broke his own program record to pace the field while Rashaad Henderson (Jr. • Racine) finished in 21.34 seconds and Gramley finished in 21.55 seconds.

UW-Oshkosh has five student-athletes sitting in the top eight in the decathlon headed into Saturday. Charlie Nolan (So. • Normal, Ill.) leads the field with 3,735 points and event wins in the 100-meter dash, long jump and 400-meter hurdles. Aden Sears (Jr. • Eureka, Ill.), who won the high jump ranks second with 3,729 points. Fellow Titans RJ Bosshart (Sr. • Muskego), Payton White (Sr. • Berrien Springs, Mich.) and Cavan Dobberstein (Fr. • Manawa) currently sit fourth, fifth and sixth after the first day of competition. Saturday's events will be the 110-meter hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1,500-meter run.
