Eric Flores, California Lutheran University
Men's Track and Field
(SO, Throws - Custer, S.D.)
The sophomore hurled the third longest hammer throw in NCAA Division III history on Saturday in winning the event at the SCIAC Quad Meet with a distance of 214’ 3”. He is only the third person Division III athlete since 1993 to surpass the 210’ barrier in the hammer. Flores was one of only two multi-event winners on the men’s side Saturday after taking the shot put event (53’ 9.25”) by nearly two feet. Flores took runner-up in the discus throw (139’ 9”) coming up just short of the three event sweep. The CLU newcomer currently holds the SCIAC record in the hammer and second best shot put distance doing so in only four meets with the Kingsmen.
