Johnson was the highlight of the day, coming in first place and taking home the national title in the 200m National Championship on Saturday. Johnson was also able to take third place in the 60m.

Luther Newborn also represented BenU and made a third place finish in the triple jump and Matt Fleming placed 5th in the long jump. Johnson finished with an official time of 21.67 seconds in the 200m and earned himself All-American honors.

Benedictine is establishing itself as one of the premier track and field teams in the nation as it looks to head into the outdoor season this spring.
