01/25/2012 – Dustin Heiler and Erika Heston were both recognized by the WHAC for their performances at the Mike Lindts Open this past weekend. Heiler was named the Men's Indoor Track Athlete of the Week, while Heston claimed the same honor on the women's side.
Heston, a freshman from Haslett, hit the automatic qualifying mark (9.19) for NAIA Indoor National Championship in the 60 meter hurdles. The championships will be contested in Geneva, Ohio during the first week of March.
Heiler, a senior from Fowlerville, broke his own school record in the 800 meters at the Mike Lindts Open hosted by Grand Valley State. The senior's winning time of 1:52.78 lowered the record by nearly a second and ranks him third on the NAIA performance list.
