From Simpson College , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

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.

PELLA, Iowa - Dylan Kalinay won three championships to earn Track Athlete of the Year honors and the 4x400-meter relay successfully defended its conference championship for the Simpson men's track and field team Saturday at the Iowa Conference Indoor Championships.

Kalinay helped the 4x200-meter relay to a championship on Friday, won the 60 hurdles and open 200 on Saturday and added a runner-up finish in the open 60 meters to become just the second IIAC Indoor Track Athlete of the Year in school history and first since Joe Farrand in 2013.
