BC's Coleman Defends Title, Highlights Day Two at NCAA Track & Field Championships

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --- Bridgewater College speedster Adalia Coleman successfully defended her indoor title as the "Division III's fastest woman" by repeating as the national champion in the 60-meter dash to headline the final day of action at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships on Saturday. ODAC athletes added seven more All-American honors to the seven laurels collected on Friday.

Coleman matched her prelims time of 7.54 seconds in the 60-meter finals to secure one of two All-American honors on the day. She finished sixth in the 200-meter dash, making her one of four conference competitors to earn multiple All-American awards at the Birmingham CrossPlex. The other three are Virginia Wesleyan University jumper Geni Roberts and University of Lynchburg mid-distance/distance runners Frank Csorba and Tor Hotung-Davidsen.

Roberts, who finished as the runner-up in the long jump on Friday, added a bronze medal to his trophy case with a third-place showing in the triple jump on Saturday. Hotung-Davidsen was a part of Lynchburg's fourth-place distance medley relay team on day one. He upped the ante on day two, donning a silver medal with a second place finish in the 800-meter run. Csorba was also a member of the Hornets DMR squad. He blazed up the lists in the men's 3,000-meter run, finishing 11 spots better than his seeding position (19th) to chime in eighth overall.

Lynchburg's Aniya Seward and Shenandoah University's Miles Moore accounted for the remaining two All-American awards. Seward placed seventh in the 60-meter hurdles, while Moore chimed in eighth in the 200-meter dash.
