Affolder Named All-Conference at AMC Championships
First-year Murphy Affolder earned all-conference honors at the American Midwest Conference Men’s Indoor Conference Championships on Thursday, Feb. 19, at Principia College. Affolder finished in third place in the 1000m run at 2:42.50, claiming six points for the Eutectics and all-conference honors. He was the top point-getter for the Eutectics, vouching for seven of the team’s 14 total points at the meet. The Eutectics finished in seventh place at their first-ever indoor conference championships.
In addition to his all-conference performance, Affolder also ran the first leg of the fourth-place distance medley relay. The relay, consisting of Affolder, fourth-year James Lidy, fourth-year Brian Pankey, and third-year Peter Jaeger, finished in 11:35.52 and earned four points for the Euts. Fourth-year thrower Clinton Washington was the only other Eutectic to score in the meet, taking fourth place in the weight throw with a toss of 13.13m. Jaeger broke the STLCOP record in the 600m run, finishing in 1:34.21 in 11th place.
Despite the snow and cold weather, the Eutectics will now look towards the outdoor season. The first outdoor meet of the season will be on Saturday, Mar. 28, at the Central Methodist University Open in Fayette, Mo.
