Patrick named Outstanding Senior Athletes at Baldwin-Wallace

Western Reserve’s Greg Patrick was among two Baldwin-Wallace athletes to get named Outstanding Senior Athletes for Baldwin-Wallace.

Patrick has turned in one of the most accomplished seasons by any thrower in B-W school history. During this indoor season, Patrick earned the second All-American honor of his career with a third-place finish in the shot put at the NCAA Championship meet.

Prior to nationals, Patrick won the OAC Championship in the shot put with a school-record throw of 54 feet, 6 3/4 inches. He also placed second in the weight throw and was named the OAC’s Bud Yost Most Outstanding Field Athlete.

During the current outdoor season, Patrick won the OAC Championship in the shot put and has broken his own school-record in the event with an NCAA automatic qualifying mark of 55’10.5."

Last outdoor season, Patrick placed eighth in the shot put at nationals to become the first male in school history to earn All-American honors in the outdoor shot put. Prior to the meet, he was named as the USTFCCCA Great Lakes Region Field Athlete of the Year.
