MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Southern Vermont College freshman Osman Padilla (El Paso, Texas) made his way to Wesleyan University on Saturday to participate in the team's 2019 season-opening meet and the Cardinals' Spring Classic.
The Mountaineer made entries into a pair of events—coming just fractions of a second shy from cracking the team's all-time lists in both of them.
