College track & field

Wolverines honored by AEC again: For the third time in the outdoor season and for second consecutive week, Wesley College freshman sprinter Kai Cole was named Atlantic East Conference Runner of the Week.

He was joined by senior thrower Jourdyn Beverly who won the AEC Field Athletie of the Week for the second time this season.

Cole placed third in the 100- and 200-meter dashes at the Morgan State Legacy Invitational. Cole clocked in at 10.46 seconds in the 100 and 21.05 seconds in the 200.

His 200-meter time of 21.05 seconds broke the school record which was previously held by Anthony Simpson in 2016. Those times are the fastest Division III times in the nation for both events.

Cole, along with TySean Cousar, John Heriot and Isaiah Bodie, finished seventh in the 400-meter relay with a time of 42.20 seconds at Morgan State.

Beverly paced the field events for the Wesley women with two top-10 finishes at the Morgan State Legacy Invitational in the throws. Beverly recorded an eighth-place heave in the shot put with a mark of 11.30 meters (37-1) and 10th in the hammer with a throw of 41.22 meters (135-3).
