WALLACE, SEWARD EARN SPOTS IN IC4A CHAMPIONSHIPS AT VIRGINIA TECH LAST CHANCE MEET

BLACKSBURG, Va. – "Better late than never."

At least that's what two members of the Virginia Commonwealth University men's track & field team are saying after earning spots in the upcoming IC4A Championships with just two weeks left before the Rams head to Boston.

Juniors Brian Wallace (Portsmouth, Va.) and Donnie Seward (Richmond, Va.) both posted qualifying marks at this past weekend's Virginia Tech Last Chance Meet.

Wallace leaped to a spot in the IC4A Championships in the triple jump with a mark of 48' 3 ½" and Seward stopped the clock in a qualifying time of 48.62 in the 400-meter dash.

Classmate Axel Mostrag (Krasnik, Poland) continues to be the constant force on this year's Black & Gold roster after posting a personal best of 4:05.65 in the mile run.

Sophomore John Vial (Glen Allen, Va.), who has been battling injuries throughout the year, charged onto the scene with a second-place performance in the 5000-meter run with a time of 14:51.97.

Wrapping up the weekend's highlights for the Rams was freshman Nick Durante (Williamsburg, Va.) who cleared a personal best in the pole vault with a height of 15' 3".

The Rams will have one more week of competition, the Mason Last Chance Meet, on Feb. 28th, before heading to ECAC Championships in the beginning of March.
