PORTLAND, Ore. - The Pacific Lutheran University men's and women's track & field program sent six student-athletes to one last meet before the 2018 NCAA Division III Championships, turning in a strong showing at the Portland Twilight. Machaela Graddy and Brad Hodkinson headlined the weekend, both establishing school records in their respective events.

On the track, Hodkinson etched his name atop the record books in the 5,000-meters, crossing the finish as the top Division III competitor at the meet, logging a time of 14 minutes. 25.44 seconds. His time shatters the old school record by over eight seconds, breaking the previous best of 14:33.86 set by Forrest Griek in 2000. In the field, Graddy shattered a record that had a significantly shorter shelf life, besting her own school record set last weekend after uncorking a throw of 146 feet, two inches, to win the javelin throw. Her winning heave was almost five feet further than her previous best and currently stands as the fifth best throw in Division III this season.
 
Christopher Nussbaum clocked a 15:54.98 in the 5,000-meters while Kyle Rapacz finished the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 9:36.49. In the field, Erik Swartout tallied a throw of 182' 2" in the javelin while in the women's high jump, Lauren Wilson cleared 5' 1 3/4".
 
Participants for the 2018 NCAA Division III Championships will be released on May 19 at 9 a.m. (Eastern) on NCAA.com. The 2018 Championships begin on May 24 in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
