Gingerelli Finishes 12th at NCAA Men's Outdoor Track and Field Championships

Delaware, OH (5/28/11) – Senior javelin thrower Joseph Gingerelli (Wood-Rdige, NJ / Wood-Ridge) placed 12th in the event at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships held at Ohio Wesleyan’s Selby Field and Gauthier Track.

Gingerelli had a best throw of 58.23 meters (191-feet).

Gingerelli entered the NCAA Championship with the 10th-best distance in the nation. He was the NJAC Champion in the event as he took first-place honors with a throw of 61.52 meters. The distance was a provisional qualifying mark but good enough to land him among the field of 19 competitors this weekend.

Montclair State has not had an individual outdoor track and field champion since the Red Hawks’ 1,600 meter relay team won the national championship in 1993.
