My colleague Dr. Roy Winegar gave the play by play:
Butler took the track by a landslide — must be their year! We finished right behind second-place Ball State and just ahead of Miriam. Northwood placed third in its track too and between us, we were the only two schools from Michigan to place. Other Michigan schools included Michigan, Michigan State, Wayne State, Central, Western, Eastern, and Ferris.There are 15 districts in the US. The winning team from each district plus one wildcard team advances to the national competition at the AAF conference in June. So GVSU won't go to the nationals but they should be congratulated for putting on a good show at districts.
