Kramper sets school standard at Howard Wood Relays


Sophomore Clay Kramper set a new school record while winning the 200-meter dash to highlight Wayne State's efforts at the Howard Wood Dakota Relays, held over the weekend in Sioux Falls, S.D.
Kramper recorded a time of 21.34 seconds to break the previous 200-meter school record of 21.52 seconds held by Alex Timperley in 2012. It’s the second-fastest time in the NSIC this season and the record run was also an NCAA provisional mark for Kramper.
Bryan Dunn posted a second-place finish in the hammer throw at 181 feet, 8 inches, while Brady Metz took second in the triple jump (46-5 1/4) and third in the long jump at 20-10 3/4.
 Jordan Zautke was fourth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.32 seconds, Josh Spenner took sixth in the pole vault at 15-0 1/4, and Robert Sullivan was seventh in the 110-meter hurdles (15.55).
The 400-meter relay team of Brandon Marker, Braxton Adams, Kramper and Zautke came in third in a time of 42.07 seconds while the Wildcat 1,600-meter quartet of Lechtenberg, Marker, Kramper and Nick Fly finished fourth in 3:31.92.
Kacie O’Connor led the Wayne State women, posting a second-place finish in the discus at 139-11.
Ellen Wulf placed sixth in the long jump at 17-1 1/2, and the 1,600-meter relay team of Melissa Kroll, Kelsey Dietrich, Rachel Rauner and Wulf came in fourth place with a time of 4:04.69.
