STEVENS POINT, Wis. - The Rockford University indoor track and field teams wrapped up their season on Saturday at the Pointer Final Qualifier. This was Rockford's second meet in the last 24 hours, after the Regents competed at the Carthage College Final Qualifier on Friday night. Saturday's meet was also non-scoring, but that didn't stop the Regents from breaking their second school record in as many days. Tommy Brown (Plano, Ill.) broke the Rockford University school record in the shot put with a throw of 14.10 meters.

 

Men's Results

  • Tommy Brown saved his best throw of the indoor season for last. Brown finished tenth in the shot put and broke the RU school record with a throw of 14.10 meters.
