What is Going On

Pertinent meet information, including live coverage links and a meet schedule, is available by accessing the PSAC Championships page linked to the side.
Shippensburg enters the championships as the No. 1 team in the Atlantic Region per the latest edition of the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) rankings, which equate a team’s value based on its top performances throughout the season. Other schools ranked prominently in the region are Slippery Rock (third) and East Stroudsburg (fourth). The regional rankings illustrate a team’s depth and articulate how it would perform in a “dual meet” setting.

Shippensburg University Track & Field History

SU won nine events at last year’s championships and its athletes will be seeking title defenses in seven. On the track, Chayce Macknair won the 10K in 30:58.65, and reigning PSAC Championships Most Valuable Athlete Drew Dailey won the 800 in 1:53.45 and the 1,500 in 3:57.95. Stephon Brown won the 400 meters last year in 48.65 seconds but will be competing in other events (notably the 100 and 200 meters and relays) this year.
Also on the track, the 4×100-meter relay returns three legs from last season’s win, as Brown, Mo WhittleEJ Dorwil and Eric Kirk set a meet record in 40.56 seconds and then won the final in 41.41 seconds. Brown, Whittle and Kirk will be accompanied by Aaron Arp Jr. this year.

Last season, competing at Seth Grove Stadium, Shippensburg won its 12th consecutive outdoor conference championship, which extends the longest conference championship winning streak in league history. The last team to win a conference championship besides Shippensburg was Slippery Rock in 2008. There was no meet in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Hopes For This Years Outcome

SU will look to defend its 4×400-meter relay championship as well, as Brown, Charles Bowman Jr., Dailey and Josh Booth posted a seven-second victory in 2021 with a time of 3:16.37.
In the field, reigning PSAC Championships Outstanding Field Athlete Josh Herbster will look to defend his title in the hammer throw after winning last year on a toss of 194 feet, 11 inches. Pat Maloney is seeking a title defense in the discus, with his top throw traveling 164 feet, 8 inches. Shaquille Mitchell, who has graduated, won the triple jump last year on a top mark of 47 feet, 10 inches.
