Six University of Tennessee at Chattanooga runners set personal records (PRs) Saturday at the Rod McCravy Memorial Invitational hosted by the University of Kentucky at the Nutter Field House.

Senior Nathan Wanuch (Mississauga, Ontario) topped his PR in the men’s Mile Run with a time of 4:17.13 while junior John Gilpin (Nashville, Tenn.) also set a PR in the race posting a time of 4:26.50.

In the women’s 400m dash, junior Gabby Cader (Cleveland, Tenn.) topped her previous best with a time of 1:00.15 along with sophomore Ambria Reese (Memphis, Tenn.) posted a PR of 1:02.63.

In the women’s 800m sophomore Jessica Philpott (Manchester, Tenn.) recorded her PR of 2:22.41. In the men’s 800m freshman Marquis Carter (Memphis, Tenn.) bested his time from the Middle Tennessee Christmas Invitational in December with a time of 1:56.69. Fellow freshman Trevor Janssen (Jordan Station, Ontario) ran the 800m in a time of 1:55.94, just off the school record 1:52.26 set by Ryan Kendall in 2002.

Sophomore Amanda Sumner (Bristol, Conn.) placed 18th in the women’s 3000 meter Section 1&2 race with a time of 10:04.38 while sophomore transfer Rachel Greenwall (Bogart, Ga.) won the women’s Section 3 race with a time of 10:35.56.

There is no time to rest for the Mocs, however. Next Saturday UTC will travel to Murfreesboro, Tenn., for the MTSU Blue Raider Invitational at the Murphy Center.

This Day In Baseball History, May 25.

1922 After being called out for trying to stretch a single into double, Babe Ruth throws dirt the umpire’s eye, then goes after a heckler in the stands, and finishes his tirade by standing on the dugout roof calling the crowd “yellow” cowards. These actions will result in a one game suspension, a $200 fine, and will cost the 'Bambino' his Yankee captaincy, a position he has held ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Two More Kick Out UAW

Woody Hayes, the great Ohio State football coach, used to teach his players to “paralyze resistance with persistence” but, my word, the likable theory has taken quite a beating in the past two years at the NTN-Bower ball-bearing plant in Hamilton, Ala. The workers there voted to decertify from the United Auto Workers union two years ago but getting the UAW out the door has turned ... (click for more)
