A pair of Iowa natives each won two titles for Grinnell College this weekend at the Midwest Conference Track and Field Championships. Senior Sarah Burnell won the 800 and was part of the winning four by 400 relay team. Burnell grew up in Grinnell and says she didn’t know what it would be like going to college in the town where she grew up and the college where her mom works, but says it has been “the whole college experience, plus more.”
Iowa City native Frank Canady capped his career by winning the 5,000 and 10,000 meter runs. Canady says the experience has just gotten better each year.
