Defiance Student-Athletes of the Week

Brooke Waidelich and Vince Jackson have been named Defiance College Athletes of the Week, as they each came home with an HCAC title at last weekend's HCAC Indoor Championship Meet at Anderson University. 

Waidelich (Pettisville) threw a career-best toss of 15.39 meters (50 feet, 6 inches) was almost a full meter ahead of the competition. It also slotted the senior into a tie for second place on the all-time Defiance College list, as she sits just 0.59 meters away from breaking the school record. 

Freshman Vince Jackson (Mason) also became a conference champion on Saturday, as his high jump of 1.97 meters (6 feet, 5.5 inches) gave him a conference title in his first ever Championship meet. Jackson also placed 10th in the long jump on Saturday, just two spots away from scoring points in two events in his freshman campaign.
