Rio Grande Sports Information
    CONWAY, S.C. - One University of Rio Grande athlete punched his ticket to the NAIA National Championship later this Spring, while another went a long way toward doing the same while representing the RedStorm men in the Shamrock Invitational, which closed out its three-day schedule on Saturday at Coastal Carolina University's Doug Shaw Stadium.
    Sophomore Alex Presley (Zanesville, OH) surpassed the "A" qualifying standard in the discus throw of 48.00 meters for the national meet with a toss of 50.95 meters - or just over 167 feet- to take fourth place. The Ohio Wesleyan University transfer was the only non-NCAA Division I athlete to finish in the top five at the meet and his heave currently ranks as the top mark in the NAIA thus far in outdoor competition.
