Oswego State track athlete, Matt Wagenhauser, placed fifth at the Division III NCAA tournament last spring for outdoor track and field, earning All American honors. He is the first track athlete to receive All American honors since the program relaunched in the early 1990’s.
The team begins their outdoor season this weekend in Rochester, NY at Nazareth College. Matt Wagenhauser holds the school record for the 400 meter dash at 48.16 seconds and also has his championship time of 1:52:01 in the 800 meter. Also in the lineup for the Lakers is Senior, Brandon Comden. Comden, a former SUNYAC champion, is coming off a leg injury. He has been training with the team, and should be in match form for the upcoming tournament in Rochester.
The Lakers only have three more tournaments, including Nazareth, before the SUNYAC Championships this May.
