While everyone else is on the road, Central College welcomes in several other colleges and universities today for the Central Open at the Ron and Joyce Schipper Stadium. The Dutch will be led by freshman Cole Decker, who just recently broke a school record in the 10,000-meter run by over a minute. Dutch Cross Country star, Eli Horton also nearly put his name into the school’s record books again with his time in the 1,500 meters on Friday, which was less than half a second away from breaking the record from 1999 by Jon Lindaman. This will be the home finale for all of the seniors racing today for Central, and field events will begin at 10:00 a.m. with the running events slated for 11:00.
