HU’s Davis wins second national title in less than three months
LACROSSE, Wis. – Nate Davis did it again.
After winning a national championship at the Division III national indoor meet in March, Davis stepped outside Friday in Lacrosse, Wisc., and cleared 6-11 1/2.
And just like that, another national championship for Heidelberg’s two-sport standout.
“Nate goes out and has fun. He makes it look so easy,” said Heidelberg coach Briana Hess in a statement released by the school. “He’s an amazing competitor and puts in the work to gain the prize.”
Davis, a senior, finishes his career as a five-time All-American. This past winter, he was a first-team Ohio Athletic Conference selection in basketball, where his mesmerizing dunks and relentless rebounding made him a star that once made ESPN’s top plays.
Davis is just the third Student Prince to claim a pair of national titles. Greg Tyson (indoor long jump) and Judy Bataille (indoor 55 meters) won their titles in back-to-back years.
Tudor makes TU track history
Macklin Tudor made Tiffin University history at the Division II nationals Friday.
The freshman, who threw 190-7 in the discus, placed second, the highest finish for a track athlete in Tiffin history.
Eugene Cannady went went 10-0 3/4 to place sixth in the high jump. Like Tudor, he received All-American honors.
On the women’s side, TU’s Katie Gernhardt was 11th in the hammer (175-1) and 12th in the discus (146-2).
