Lamar named GLIAC Freshman of the Year

Firelands’ Cory Lamar was named the GLIAC men’s freshman of the year for his outstanding freshman year running track at Ashland.

At the GLIAC championships last weekend at Grand Valley State, Lamar finished third in the 400 meters. He was also a part of the 4x4 relay that finished third and the distance medley relay that finished second.

"Cory came into a stable of 400 meter runners," AU head coach Jud Logan said through a press release. "When you have Joe Horn, Nick Bellanco, Edwin Smith and Cyrus Granger, he was the new kid on the block. What Cory did was practice with those guys every day. Those guys are his leaders, his examples. That’s why he’s running the times he is now."

Lamar has earned a berth to the NCAA Division II national championship meet, which will be held March 12-13 in Albuquerque, N.M.
