West grad claims second NAIA national track title

West graduate Hans Roelle claimed his second NAIA national track and field title with a victory in Saturday's 800-meter run at the outdoor national championships.

A junior at Eastern Oregon, Roelle finished in 1:50.35, edging Indiana Tech's John Hester by three-hundredths of a second.

Roelle also won an indoor national title in the 1,000 meters in March.
