Lachman Qualifies for NCAA Championships
After a low-key first day of competition on Friday at the NCAA East Regional Championship, the Bulldogs saw a spectacular performance in the field events on Saturday. Senior Jeffrey Lachman placed fifth in the discus throw, which was good enough to earn an automatic bid for the NCAA National Championships.
