2018 USTFCCCA D3 Outdoor All-Region

Eli Saucier '18 (Douglasville, Ga./Hiram HS), Erich Wohl '18 (Jamaica, N.Y./Bronx HS of Science) and Lucas Wright '21 (Severna Park, Md./McDonogh School) were honored for their performance in the Atlantic Region this spring. The top five individuals in each event and all four members of the top three relays earned all-region distinction. The regions used for this award match those used during the cross country and indoor track & field seasons.

Saucier is all-region for the 100- and 200-meter dash -- the events he will compete in this week at the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships in La Crosse, Wisconsin. He took second place in the 100 meters at the NESCAC championships on April 28 with a school-record time of 10.64 seconds. Saucier was runner-up in the 200 meters at the All-Atlantic Region Track & Field Conference outdoor championships on May 17 with another school-record time of 21.47 seconds. He was indoor all-region for the 60-meter dash and the 200 meters back in early March, and he earned 2017 all-region outdoor honors for the 100 and 200.

Wohl is all-region for the first time for the 3,000-meter steeplechase. He finished seventh in the event at the NESCAC championships on April 28 with a personal-record time of 9:28.13.

Wright is all-region for the 800-meter run after he landed in second place in the event at the All-Atlantic Region Track & Field Conference outdoor championships on May 17 with a personal-best time of 1:51.95. He was indoor all-region for the 800 meters back in early March.
