Fry Named Most Valuable Runner After Record-Setting Day at MIAA Championships

FREELAND, Mich. – The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) announced the All-MIAA Indoor Track and Field teams, with a trio of seniors from Adrian College being named in four different events. Senior Randy Fry's record setting performance in the championships on Saturday earned him the distinction of the MIAA's Most Valuable Runner on the men's side.

Fry had a huge day on Saturday, setting multiple records in the 60-meter and 200-meter dashes. Fry ran a 6.85 in the 60-meter, setting a new PR, school record, and MIAA record to go along with his first-place finish. He also set a new MIAA record in the 200-meter with his time of 22.31, missing his PR and school record of 21.99 set a week ago at the Hillsdale Tune-Up by .32 seconds.

Fry's time in the 60-meter puts him eighth in all of Division III while his time from last week puts him ninth in the 200-meter. He is the first Adrian College runner to be named the MIAA's Most Valuable Runner for indoor track in school history.

Hurdler Jordan Davis won the 60-meter hurdles on Saturday, giving him the MIAA title all four years. His time of 8.03 set a new PR, school record, and conference record, smashing his old MIAA record of 8.21 set in 2017. Davis's time moves him into third place in Division III in the 60-meter hurdles.

Rayona Hart-Wilson took home the conference title in the long jump, setting a new PR and school record in the process with a 17'6.75" (5.35m) jump. She's the first Adrian College women's track and field athlete to be named All-MIAA since the Bulldogs had four such honors in 2016.

Adrian will take some of its team to the Pointer Qualifier this weekend in Stevens Point, Wis. The Wisconsin-Stevens Point hosted event on March 2 is the final weekend before the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships in Boston, Mass. on March 8-9.
