JOHNSON CITY — Milligan College’s men and women failed to capture their third straight Appalachian Athletic Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Thursday, but the Buffs still registered several impressive individual performances at Sidney Smallwood Track.
Kevin Mowatt blazed to victories in the men’s 100- and 400-meter dashes. Shaka Andrew prevailed in both the shot put and discus in garnering most outstanding athlete of the meet honors.
Meagan Wright raced to the women’s 800-meter win, and was named most outstanding female.
“I was really proud of the way our kids competed today,” Milligan coach Chris Layne said. “We wanted to set them up to have a chance to pick up some wins, have some good individual performances and take a step forward. I think we did that.”
