BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Sophomore Danny Aschale (Cambridge, Mass.) competed in the 5,000-meter run at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Birmingham CrossPlex on Friday afternoon.
Aschale was making his first-ever appearance at an NCAA championship event. Even though he was unable to finish the race, the sophomore capped a strong winter season after helping lead the cross country program to a fourth-place finish at the NESCAC Championships and a seventh-place effort at the NCAA New England Regional Championships. Aschale entered this weekend's NCAA Championships ranked 14th nationally in the 5,000 and 27th in the 3,000.
Junior Scott Mason (Wyndmoor, Pa.) will represent Connecticut College at the championship meet tomorrow afternoon when he races in the 3,000-meter run at 5:30 p.m. EST.
