Our Saint men's track and field team finished fourth at the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) Track and Field Championships May 17-20 in Spokane, Wash.

The MHCC Saints were led by Tyler Callahan who had a monster throw of 235 feet to win the javelin and was awarded the Outstanding Field Athlete of the meet along with All-American honors.  Callahan's throw extends his own school record by nearly 12 feet and moves him into the top 20 javelin throwers in the country at any level.  The Saints also received strong performances from Cody Beierle in the 800 meters who ran 1:58.12 to earn All-American honors by finishing second.  Cody Quinton also had a great meet and improved his personal best in the discus to 147'11 to finish fourth.
