JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships concluded their three-day national event on Saturday at David E. Walker at Gentry Field.  Dakota State's (S.D.) Mark Moeller ran in the men's 800-meter national finals for the second time during his indoor track career.

Moeller, who produced a season-best time in the semifinals Friday afternoon, ran a time of 1 minute, 54.42 seconds to earn a fifth-place finish in the national finals for the Trojans.  Presley Martin of Marian (Ind.) won the individual title in 1 minute, 52.14 seconds.

Moeller earned his third overall NAIA All-American recognition during his stellar running career at Dakota State.  It was his second NAIA Indoor Track All-American honor in the men's 800-meters, where he also competed in the national finals in 2015.

Dakota State scored four points at the national meet, tying with five other teams – Carroll (Mont.), Huntington (Ind.), William Penn (Iowa), Goshen (Ohio), and Benedictine (Kan.) – for 41st-place.  DSU was the top South Dakota school scored in the national meet.

Dakota State will take several long-distance runners to the Midland (Neb.) Warriors Half-Marathon race next Saturday (March 11).  The race will be held in Fremont, Neb.

Dakota State kicks off the outdoor track and field season on March 24-25 as they compete in the Wildcat Classic.  The meet is hosted by NCAA Division II Wayne State (Neb.) in Wayne, Neb.
