Bruins running team is right on track

The Bob Jones University Bruins track team recently competed in the Terrier Relays at Wofford College in Spartanburg.

Even though the Bruins are still building the program, they represented the University well, as they were able to compete with some of the best teams in the league.

The Lady Bruins had a good showing as they competed in the 1500-meter race. Deborah Spannagel led the team with a time of 5:35.23 to place 48th place overall.

Molly Campbell had a good meet as well with a time of 6:03.69 for 57th place overall.

Daniel Marinelli and Matthew Hopkins represented the Bruins in the 1500-meter race, and Jonathan Bright took on the 3000-meter steeplechase.

Marinelli came in strong with a time of 4:15.58 to finish 23rd overall. Bright had a solid finish with a time of 10:54.46 and 13th overall.

“Overall, I felt we looked a little tired today, but I think that was a result of a harder workout last week,” Coach Landon Bright said. “We’ve been working pretty hard the last couple weeks, so I gave most of our athletes the day off for this one to get rested.”

The Bruins will be competing in the Southern Wesleyan University Invitational in Central, South Carolina on April 9.
