The Bulldogs ran well at Taggart Field and especially in the 1,500 meter run, as Tina Muir (first), Samantha Johnson (second) and Shelby Janutol (fourth) all finished in the top-five finishers in the event. Zoey Hohmann won the 400 meter run and finished a close second in the 200 meter run.

On the men’s side Spencer Gerber finished first in the 1,500 meter run along with Alex Best finishing first in the 3,000 meter run.

Clutch play comes in handy for Bulldogs as they top Wayne State University

In the heat of their conference schedule, the Bulldog tennis players took to the court April 5 against GLIAC opponent Wayne State University.
