On Friday (Jan. 18), cross country and track & field student-athlete Robert Crockett (Detroit, Mich./King) completed a record day in the 800m and one-mile events after finishing with times of 2:05 and 4:49 respectively. Both times were personal bests for Crockett as he dashed his way past National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II competition in each race.
This week, the Mustangs travel to The Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio for the 2013 Midwest Open. Our athletics website, www.MarygroveMustangs.com will feature a full recap of the event.
