By Dillon Gilliland, Sports Reporter

Senior throwers Jared Kern and Isaac Ingram concluded their indoor season at the NCAA Indoor Championships this weekend.

The two throwers were the only athletes from the SIU track and field team to qualify in their respective events for the NCAA Championships.

Kern opened on Friday in the shot put with an 11th-place finish with a mark of 62′-o0.25″, which earned him Second Team All-American honors.


On the second day of events, Ingram competed in his signature event, the weight throw. The McKendree University transfer tied for 15th, which earned Second Team All-American honors.

With the conclusion of the indoor season, the track and field will begin the outdoor season with the SIU-hosted Bill Cornell Spring Classic. The events will take place on March 23-24.
