Wildcats Take on Bearcat Classic 

The indoor track and field season continued for the Wayne State Wildcats as they faced tough competition at the Bearcat Classic.  

The Bearcat Classic, held on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Mo., took place last weekend and saw teams from across the Midwest come to compete. No team scores were kept, as the meet focused heavily on the individual performances.  

Dylan Kneifl highlighted the men’s side of the meet, finishing with a high jump of 6’ 10.25”, or 2.09 meters in metric. He would go on to get first place in the event. This jump would also be a provisional mark for Kneifl, qualifying for the NCAA Indoor Championships March 8-9, in Pittsburgh, Kan. The mark to qualify was 2.03 meters, or 6’8”.  

Behind Kneifl, Elliot Nottlemann finished fifth with a jump of 6’4”, and Debonaire Williams finished 14th, jumping an even 6’.

Rogers jumped 20’4”, and McQueen 20’1”.
