Sports editor note: Kalinay graduated from STC in 2014. He is the son of James and Tammy Kalinay of Toledo. In his junior year at STC Kalinay was part of the Class 3A State Champion 4x100 team (Dylan Kalinay, Kaleb Davenport, Daryl Bidwell and Kyle Stephenson). He was the only returning member of the STC 4x100 relay team in his senior year. The 2014 quartet of Kalinay, Tyler Blocker, Zach Morris and Robert Tyynismaa placed 5th overall.

GENEVA, Ohio - Jordan Coughenour used the second-fastest time in school history to capture All-America honors in the 400 hurdles, highlighting the final day of the 2017 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships for the Simpson men.

Dylan Kalinay

Coughenour finished seventh to become Simpson's second All-American on the weekend and Dylan Kalinay took ninth in the country in the 110 hurdles. With Isaac Frazier's fifth-place finish in the decathlon Friday, Simpson brings home All-Americans in multiple events for the first time since 1997.

Coughenour ran a career-best 52.77, a remarkable turnaround after entering the weekend with the 17th-fastest qualifying time. The junior ran a strong race but clipped the ninth hurdle, preventing a potential top-five effort.

Coughenour becomes Simpson's first All-American in the event since 1995 while his time puts him in elite company. Only 10-time All-American and Olympian Kip Janvrin has run the event faster, setting the school record 29 years ago.

Kalinay ran 14.76 in the 110 hurdles, just missing out on a second-straight All-American effort. The junior was racing for just the second time in a month due to a hamstring injury sustained late in the season.

Simpson will finish the national meet with six points.
