Augustana Athletes Compete in Conf. Championship in R.I.
After winning this year's INDOOR conference championship, the Augustana men's track and field team will try to do the same outdoors. Today and tomorrow, the college in Rock Island will host the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin meet for men and women. It starts today at 10 a.m. with the heptathlon and decathlon.
At the Drake Relays, the Vikings' 1600 meter relay team finished sixth overall, but came in second among NCAA Div. III teams. Last year's squad brought home national championship medals for winning the indoor relay. Junior Isaac Smith from Marion, Iowa is the only runner who's also on this year's team.
