Eagle River track standout Jeremiah Wilson set a school record in the 100 meters at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships as part of an impressive showing for the Colorado Mesa University sophomore.

He ran a 10:59 to set a new all-conditions standard for D2 CMU.

Wilson, of Chugiak High fame, finished fourth in the 100m later posted a time of 22.26, the 10th fastest time in program history. He’s headed to nationals to compete in the 100 meters and as a part of their top-ranked 4×100 team.

Wilson was a key member of Chugiak’s 2019 track and field state championship.

At UC Santa Cruz, Anchorage track standout Nolan Rand anchored both the 4×100 and 4×400 at the Coast to Coast Conference in Maryland.

The freshman sprinter helped the Banana Slugs to a 2nd place finish in both events, finishing 1/20th of a second behind the winner in the 4×100 and just off the 17-year-old school record in the 4×400.

Rand, of Service High fame, also competed in the 100m and 200m. It was the first time UCSC had ever competed outside of California.
