PITTSBURG — McPherson College’s Chris Linnin was named Male Athlete of the Meet when the KCAC conducted its indoor track and field championships on Friday and Saturday at Pittsburg State.

Linnin, just a freshman, scored 30 points by winning three events — the long jump (22-7 3/4), high jump (6-8 1/4) and triple jump (44-8).

Mac’s Robert Spies was named Coach of the Year after the Bulldogs finished second only to Friends.

MC’s Dixon Cooney won the mile in 4:17.83 and Art Hop went 15-3 to win the pole vault. Marlon Clayton was another big point producer, taking second in the 400, third in the triple jump and running on a second-place relay team. J’Moi Penn had a second in the 200, a fourth in the 60 and ran with Clayton on that runner-up 4 x 400 relay.

“I am so proud of our team," Spies said. "We really came together today and worked as a team. We had some fantastic performances all day and yesterday as well. I really don't know if I could be happier with any other group of student-athletes. I couldn't have won the Coach of the Year title without the other coaches, so I consider it that we are the Men's Coaches of the Year. But really none of us would be here without the great athletes we have, so they deserve credit, too. What this meet really does for me is makes me excited for the outdoor season as I know what we are capable of."

The Mac women were fifth behind Rea Samuels, who had seconds in the two short sprints, 7.83 and 25.36, respectively. Jasmine Helms was second in the triple jump and fifth in the long jump for another highlight.
