The Michigan Tech men's outdoor track and field team will have a pair of representatives at the NCAA Division II National Championships May 25-27 in Bradenton, Florida.
Matthew Pahl will compete in the 10,000 Meter Run and Kyle Petermann will take part in the Discus Throw after the qualifiers were announced by the national office yesterday.
Pahl, a sophomore distance runner from Canton, Michigan, will be making his first appearance in the NCAA Championships. Pahl recorded a provisional qualifying time in the 10,000 at the Bucknell Bison Invitational on April 15.
His time of 29:53.24 was a new personal best and Michigan Tech school record.
Petermann, a senior from Clintonville, Wisconsin, will be making his second consecutive appearance at the NCAA Championships. Petermann turned in his best performance of the 2017 season at the GLIAC Championships earlier this month. Petermann's throw covered a distance of 52.83m.
"Being selected to the National Championships is a tremendous accomplishment for Matt and Kyle, along with our program," Michigan Tech Head Coach Jake Isaacson said. "Both of these young men have provided us with leadership and excellence along with their great performances, and they will represent Michigan Tech proudly down in Florida."
