Spalding University sophomore thrower Kyle Jenkins placed 12th at the NCAA Division-III Track and Field Championships with a final throw of 49.53 meters.

Jenkins was one of 20 individuals selected to compete in the event that ran from May 23-25 at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Kyle was in fifth after his flight, but dropped to 12th once the second flight had concluded.

“Although Kyle didn’t place as high as he would have liked, it was a great learning experience that will benefit him in the future. We are proud of him,” said Coach Kevin Alessandro.
