Tommie senior Eric Holst came so close but placed second in the hammer Saturday at the Division III national championships in Geneva, Ohio.

Holst was the 2018 national champion in the hammer and in March 2019 was the indoor champ in the weight throw. He just missed a triple gold as his best of 202-3 on Saturday was just 12 inches behind the winning throw. Holst, Gustavus'' Michael Hentsch and Hamline's Eric Dols gave the MIAC a 2-3-4 finish.

St. Thomas tied for 31st place with nine team points. David Danhauer took eighth in Friday's shot put.
