Third-year Brian Pankey was named KIAC Men’s Track and Field Athlete of the Year after winning performances at the KIAC Championship meet on Saturday, April 26, in Berea, Ky. Pankey won the 400m dash (51.19) and Long Jump (6.69m/21-11.5), and successfully defended his Triple Jump champion title with a leap of 13.09m/42-11.5. He also took second place in the 200m dash (while breaking the STLCOP record at 22.70) and the Javelin Throw (48.64m/159-07) and took fourth place in the hammer throw (23.93m/78-06) to rack up 50 points – more than any other athlete in the meet or in STLCOP history. He also finished eighth in the shot put (9.19m/30-02). Pankey’s efforts helped the Euts to a second place finish of four teams at the meet, with 131 total points. The team brought home 10 all-conference medals and head coach David Baker was named KIAC Men's Track and Field Coach of the Year by a vote of conference coaches.
Third-year Clinton Washington won his second KIAC championship title in the Hammer Throw with a toss of 40.10m/131-06.75, breaking his own STLCOP record by 0.14m. Washington scored 24 points of his own with all-conference performances in three events: Hammer Throw, Discus (second place, 36.88m/121-00), and Shot Put (third place, 11.39m/37-04.5). Other all-conference medals were earned by second-year Zach Wainwright, who was third in the 400m Hurdles (1:01.58), and first-year Kishan Patel, who took third in the Hammer Throw (33.58m/110-02).
