Augusta grad Camryn Snapp was part of the Campbellsville University men’s 4×800 Mid-South Conference relay champs on Tuesday during the MSC Championships.
Snapp helped the Tigers run a school record time of 7:56.38, topping second place Shawnee State by over three seconds.
“We had an idea to plan to run certain times and try and go out and hit NAIA standards,” Snapp said.
The sophomore ran the first leg of the event.
“Sam (Kiser), Chris (Stoeckel) and Brett (Crawford) are my teammates that really helped out. We hit our times and ran to the best of our abilities. We came out with a win and school record,” Snapp said.
Snapp didn’t stop there as he also competed in the 1,500 meter run, placing fifth with a time of 4:05 earning the Tigers four points in the event and the 5,000 meter run, placing 14th with a time of 16:50.80.
“The 1,500 was a big PR, I’m extremely excited about that. I was ranked 10th coming into the event, so ending in fifth was a surprise. I was extremely gassed after that for the 5,000. I had a chance of finishing better, but it was tough, my legs were spent,” Snapp said.
Snapp’s lifelong friend and Campbellsville teammate Jacob Hamilton, a Bracken County graduate, also ran in the 1,500, placing eighth with a time of 4:15.50 and earning the Tigers a point.
“It’s great running with him,” Snapp said. “It wasn’t the best look seeing him in blue, but it’s great seeing him in Maroon.”
Campbellsville finished third as a team in the MSC with 166 points, behind Lindsey Wilson with 230 points and Cumberlands with 205 points.
Campbellsville’s next meet comes at The Last Chance meet at the University of Kentucky, followed by the NCCAA Championships on May 11 in Winona Lake, Indiana, with the season ending NAIA National Championships starting on May 24 in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Snapp said he’ll participate in the NCCAA Championships in the 4×800 as well as the 1,500, hoping to hit times to qualify for the NAIA meet.
