OSHKOSH - The UW-Eau Claire men's track team dropped from fifth to sixth in day two of the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) Outdoor Championships.
UW-La Crosse defended its crown with 247 points. UW-Whitewater was the runner-up while tallying 194.5. The home team, UW-Oshkosh, posted 98 while UW-Platteville followed them with 94.5.

With 32 points, UW-River Falls placed eighth while UW-Superior brought up the rear on a 13 point showing.
Matt Crosby (Fr.-Glenwood City) took second in one of the decathlon events today. His 110-meter hurdle run of 16.02 was good for the two spot and was his fastest this year.
On a time of 3:17.06, the 4x400-meter relay team took second.
The 4x100-meter relay squad tied the team's best mark this season in its fourth place finish. Frankie Adams (Fr.-Burnsville, MN), Nick Aliota (Jr.-Brookfield/Central), Chris Kupfer (Fr.-Germantown), and Bryan Tschudy (Fr.-New Richmond) posted a 42.75 time.
The fourth best time in the 1500-meter run went to Adam Wolfe (So.-Marshfield) this afternoon. He ran a season-best 3:59.17 for the placement.
