Greenleaf and Braun named All-West Region

NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) has announced the All-Region honorees for the 2018 NCAA Division III indoor track & field season.

The Occidental Track & Field team sent juniors Zach Greenleaf and Melissa Braun to Flagstaff, Arizona to compete at NAU last month.

Both athletes were named to All-West Region team for pole vault for indoor track. The top 5 individuals in each event from each region earn this distinction. 

Greenleaf, the SCIAC champion in the event in 2016, reached a new PR of 15'7" which is a great start to his junior season. Braun was an All-SCIAC performer in 2016 and has also achieved a PR at the beginning of this season at 12'1.5"

"We're proud of Zach and Melissa's performances in their first ever collegiate indoor competition" said Oxy head coach Rob Bartlett. "To be named to the indoor All-West Region team by the coaches association is an honor, and something they're looking to build on in the outdoor season."

The Tigers are back in action this Saturday, March 10th at Oxy for the annual Distance Carnival.
