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.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Simpson hurdler Dylan Kalinay brought home the program's best finish at indoor nationals in 33 years, placing third in the 60-meter hurdles at the 2018 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships at Birmingham CrossPlex on Saturday.

A senior from Toledo, Iowa, Kalinay came into the championship seeded sixth in the 60-meter hurdles and entered the final with the No. 5 qualifying time. He moved up two spots to third by running 8.14 in the final, the top finish by a Simpson male at indoor nationals since Danny Bauer (5k) and Kirk Pederson (800) won national titles back in 1985.

Kalinay is now a two-time All-American, adding to his eighth-place finish in the 110-meter hurdles at the 2016 outdoor national championship. His finish is the best by a Simpson male -- indoor or outdoor -- since Matt Chance took second in the 5,000 meters in 1996.
