ADA, Ohio -- Mount Union had three season bests headline the day at the Ohio Northern Last Chance meet Saturday in Ada.

Unfortunately, none of the three marks were able to crack the top 15 spots in the nation to qualify for next week's NCAA Championships in Grinnell, Iowa.

Those season bests came from Tyler Neff (Navarre/Fairless) with a second in the 200 meters (49.41), Tyler Orewiler (Bucyrus/Colonel Crawford) in the 60 meter dash (7.06) and Ty Menear (Brunswick/Brunswick) in the 3000 meters (8:43.89).

At this time it appears three Purple Raiders will represent the men's team at the NCAA Championships.

Orewiler is ranked No. 2 in the nation in the pole vault, Zack Wukotich (Salem/Salem) leads the nation in the high jump and Louis Berry (Pittsburgh, Pa./Shadyside Academy) is seventh in the 60 meter dash.

Entries for the meet will be announced on Monday.
