Patrick named OAC Field Event Athlete of the Year

BEREA, Ohio - Western Reserve’s Greg Patrick has been named the Ohio Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year for Baldwin-Wallace, announced Saturday at the OAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships hosted by Wilmington College.

Patrick, who is a three-time All-OAC thrower, placed first in the shotput with a 54-foot throw, which qualified him for the NCAA Division III national meet. He also tossed the hammer (163-2) and the discus (152-5), both second place finishes. His Yellow Jackets’ team placed third in the conference meet.

Last year as a sophomore, Patrick earned All-Ohio honors by placing third in the shotput (49-6 1/2). As a freshman, he earned All-Ohio honors with a fourth-place finish with a discus throw of 141-3. He also received the Tim McCaig Outstanding Male Thrower award for the shotput and was named Co-Most Valuable Athlete for the Yellow Jackets.
