JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships continued on the second day at the David E. Walker at Gentry Field.  Dakota State's (S.D.) Mark Moeller competed in the men's 800-meter run semifinals Friday afternoon.

Moeller ran in the first heat of the men's 800-meter run semifinals.  He clocked a season-best time of 1 minute, 53.87 seconds to place fourth in the first heat.  His time was just .72 seconds short of tying the DSU Indoor Track's school record in the men's 800-meter run, held by former NAIA All-American runner Tyler Van Peursem with a time of 1 minute, 53.15 seconds in 2010.

After the second heat was completed, DSU's Moeller advanced to the men's 800-meter run national finals Saturday.  He posted the fourth best time in the semifinals. 

He will join with seven other runners in the national finals tomorrow afternoon at 2:15 p.m. (Eastern Time)/1:15 p.m. (Central Time).  The other seven runners are:  Presley Martin of Marian (Ind.), Bryce Choate of Tennessee Wesleyan, Thomas Morrell III of Eastern Oregon, Brent Rodden of Siena Heights (Mich.), Alex Saunders of Southern New Orleans (La.), Jordan Houdek of Mount Marty (S.D.) and Peter Hollinger of Northwestern (Iowa). 

Martin was the top runner in the men's 800-meter run semifinals with a time of 1:53.50, followed by Choate second (1:53.71), Morrell III third (1:53.78) and Moeller fourth (1:53.87). 

Moeller will guarantee an NAIA Indoor Track All-American status after the national finals tomorrow afternoon.  It will be his third overall NAIA All-American during his stellar running career at Dakota State, his second NAIA All-American Indoor Track in the men's 800-meters (he ran in the men's 800-meters national finals in 2015).
