Brooklyn Hubbard & Hunter Wilson
Preble Shawnee grads and Indiana University East tennis players Brooklyn Hubbard and Hunter Wilson both made the River States Conference all-conference teams, the league announced May 1. Hubbard, a sophomore, was a women’s tennis all-conference selection for the second year in a row. Hubbard compiled a 16-6 singles record, primarily at No. 3 singles, to help IU East finish 14-7. Wilson, a junior, made the men’s tennis all-conference team for the first time. He finished with a 7-6 record, primarily at No. 3 singles, as IU East finished with a program-best 9-9 record.
Seth Reynolds qualified for the NAIA national meet in a second event to highlight the day for the Indiana University East track and field teams at the River States Conference meet held April 27 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Reynolds, an Eaton graduate, won a thrilling 400 meter hurdles race with a national meet qualifying time and also took first place in the 110 meter hurdles. Reynolds was one of nine Red Wolves who earned all-conference honors with a top-three finish in an individual event or relay. Reynolds won the 400 meter hurdles by .01 with a time of 53.64 in a race in which the top three finishers all ran an NAIA “A” standard. Reynolds knocked a remarkable three-plus seconds off of his personal best and became the first IU East athlete to qualify for two events at one national meet. Reynolds posted a national meet qualifying mark for the 110 meter hurdles earlier this season. Reynolds also defended his conference title in the 110 meter hurdles. Reynolds will compete at the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships starting May 24 in Gulf Shores, Alabama.
