Bourbonnais, Ill. - Saint Xavier University freshman John Neisler (Armington, Ill./Olympia) finished second overall in the 800 meter run at the Olivet Nazarene University Invitational in a time of 1:58.7 Saturday in Bourbonnais, Ill. In addition, freshman Eli Hoffman (Mount Morris, Ill./Oregon) finished 12th in the same event with a time of 2:05.3.
"John got caught just before the tape, however, it is obvious that this was his best race so far and I'm excited about his prospects for the remainder of the season," said SXU men's track coach Ed McAllister. "Eli was boxed out and this greatly affected his time. He is just starting to show some extensive progress."
