Minori, Gore Named SAAC/Pepsi Super Crusaders

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna men's field athlete Jared Minori and softball player Jackie Gore have been named SAAC/Pepsi Super Crusaders for the week ending March 20.

Minori competed in the opening outdoor track and field meet at Juniata College this past weekend and won the javelin with a throw of 200' 00", 22 feet farther than the runner up. His mark is currently second in all of NCAA Division III.

The Susquehanna track and field squad returns to action on Saturday, March 26 when the team hosts the Jim Taylor Invitational starting at 10:00 a.m.
