LINK – ASHLAND UNIVERSITY TRACK AND FIELD PAGE

It turns out that Ashland University senior Myles Pringle is pretty fast in Canada, too.

In the semifinals of the men's 400-meter dash at the 2018 North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC) Track & Field Championships at Varsity Stadium in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Pringle, competing for Team USA, turned in the fastest time in both heat 2 and overall, on Friday (Aug. 10) morning.

Pringle crossed the finish line in 46.28 seconds – out-pacing Grenada's Bralon Taplin (46.37) in both the heat and the overall standings in the semifinals. Pringle will run in the men's 400 finals on Saturday (Aug. 11) at 5:30 p.m.

Pringle unofficially is the fastest men's 400 dash runner in the history of NCAA Division II indoor competition at 45.93 seconds (unofficial because it came on an oversized track). In his Eagle career, Pringle has a total of five national championships and 14 All-American awards.
