LOUISVILLE, Ky.—Tell City graduate Ben Harpenau has qualified for the NCAA men’s track and field national meet in the hammer throw for the second year in a row.
Harpenau, a senior on Purdue University’s team, earned an automatic bid to the nationals with his third-place finish in the Mideast Regional Saturday.
He made a 211-foot-8 throw on his third attempt, extending his personal best mark for the second consecutive meet.
That throw was seven inches farther than his Big Ten Conference winning throw two weeks earlier.
