Molinaro named OAC track athlete of the week, and why not

Junior Matt Molinaro (Sterling Heights, Mich./DeLaSalle) has been named the Ohio Athletic Conference Men's Outdoor Track Athlete of the Week for the week of Apr. 9-15.

The junior finished fourth overall in the 800-meter run, and tied his own mark for the fastest time nationally among Div. III athletes at the Mt. Sac Relays.

 Molinaro finished the event in 1:49.30 and was within one second of the first place runner.

The junior competed at the Beach Invitational the next day in the 800-meter run.

He finished third overall in the event in 1:48.92 and ran the fastest time nationally among Div. III athletes.

Molinaro posted a new personal best in the event and narrowly missed breaking a 9-year old school record.
