For the second straight year, the Benedictine University men's track and field team placed fourth at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

The Eagles were led by Luther Newburn, who won his second straight triple jump national championship with a jump of 15.89.

"It can't get any better than being a two-time national champion," said Benedictine Head Coach Kevin Paterson. "Luther has consistently proven that he is a force to be reckoned with in the triple jump and today he proved that he deserves to earn two titles."
