Taylor, McCastle sweep MCC track awards


Two individuals have punched their tickets for May’s national championships and their efforts in doing so earned them Midwest Collegiate Conference Men's Track and Field Athlete of the Week laurels Monday.
Sam Taylor was named Track AOW for the second straight week, while Cornelius McCastle garnered the Field AOW award.
Taylor qualified for the NAIA National Championships in the 110-meter hurdles with a ‘B’ standard time of 15.00 seconds at the Central Invitational. He was second on Saturday and currently leads the MCC in that event. The junior was also a member of the 4x100-meter relay squad that finished second in 44.16 seconds.
He is currently tied for 16th in the NAIA in the 110-meter hurdles.
McCastle won the high jump with both a "B" standard and school-record mark of 6-8. He was jumping by himself for much of the competition, defeating the runner-up by six inches. The freshman crushed the program mark which had been held by three individuals (in 1974, 1977 and 2011) by two inches.
He also placed first in the triple jump with another MCC-leading distance of 43-9 and was a member of the winning 4x400-meter relay team that crossed the line in 3:21.39 (conference leading).

Foster garners NAIA All-America recognition
OSKALOOSA — Cameron Foster did not slow down nor did he catch a bout of senioritis this year and his impressive campaign was rewarded as the NAIA announced its All-America men’s bowling teams recently.
Foster, who won Midwest Collegiate Conference Player of the Year honors for the second time last month, was picked for the NAIA's second team. It is his fourth career honor and second by the NAIA (first team last year). William Penn has now garnered seven All-America awards in its five-year history, including four from the NAIA.
The senior finished his final collegiate season with a 212.1 average in 78 games, including a high game of 290. Foster posted eight top-25 finishes (five top 10s), including winning the Glenn Carlson Invitational in December. Collegebowling.com's rankings as of Feb. 16 had Foster rated 23rd in the nation in scoring average.
