Q-C college men's track & field
Vikings earn All-American status at NCAA DIII Championships: Augustana senior Alex Rindone came within an eyelash of winning the 400-meter dash at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championship on Saturday. Rindone placed second with a time of :48.21, finishing behind the fieldhouse record of 48.20 put up by Aric Hoeschen of UW-LaCrosse. Rindone led the first of two laps, but Hoeschen took the lead and led by about five meters heading into the home stretch. Rindone closed, but could not quite catch him. Rindone's time of :48.21 established an Augustana school record, breaking his previous record set just the night before in the preliminary round. Viking senior Greg Patton placed eighth in :50.48 after running :49.17 in the qualifying round.
