Berea College's Logan McKenzie finished runner-up in the Men's 3000m Steeplechase finals in NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the Spire Institute on Saturday, May 25th. McKenzie ran a time of 9:03.61.
McKenzie entered the event seeded 8th, but performed tremendously to finish 2nd behind Benjamin Schott from Messiah College. This is McKenzie's first NCAA Division III Outdoor Nationals appearance. Behind McKenzie finished Daniel Rosen from Pomona-Pitzer College, Matthew Wilkinson from Carleton College, and Patrick Watson from Stevenson College to round out the top-5, all of whom were seeded higher than McKenzie.
Logan McKenzie is the first Berea College athlete to compete in any NCAA National Championship, and now also the first to bring home hardware from a NCAA National Championship with his runner-up finish.
