ST. PAUL, Minn. – While the rest of their teammates were busying hosting the Carleton Interscholastic High School Meet, four members of the Knights men’s track and field team traveled to the Meet of the Unsaintly hosted by Hamline University.

Noah Laack-Veeder (Fy./Madison, Wis./LaFollette) won the 800-meter run with a time of 1:52.38. That figure ranks 17th in the nation, second among first-year racers, and is also third-best all-time at Carleton.

Isaac Schrantz (Fy./Owatonna, Minn./Owatonna) and Jordan Butler (Jr./El Mirage, Ariz./Dysart) established personal records in the 400-meter dash. Schrantz crossed the line at 49.50, finishing fourth overall and second among Division III racers. James Morrissey (Sr./New York, N.Y./Stuyvesant) ran a solid 51.60, which placed him 17th in the 31-racer field, although eight of the athletes that placed ahead of him race for Division II programs. Butler won his heat, reaching the tape at 51.75.

The Knights will compete at the MIAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships, May 11-12 at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn.
