COLLEGE TRACK: Roelle wins national championship in 800

Eastern Oregon University middle distance runner Hans Roelle capped off his impressive season with a NAIA national championship in the men’s 800 meters in Gulf Shores, Ala., Saturday.

Roelle, a junior, battled dizziness and cramps before and during the race to beat Indiana Tech's John Hester by a mere three-tenths of a second with a time of 1 minute, 50.35 seconds.

“The race was a photo finish,” track and field head coach Ben Welch said. “He was struggling early on, but made his move right at the end to win.”

Roelle finished third in the same race last year after nearly getting disqualified as he pushed and shoved his way out of getting boxed in.

“Being from Alaska, it was not easy for Hans to handle temperatures over 90 degrees today,” Welch said. “I’m extremely proud of him. It’s not easy to come in ranked No. 1 with a target on your back. Today he really proved that he is the best.”
