Muskingum University hosted the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Bullock Health and Wellness Complex (BHWC) on Feb. 23-24, 2024. It was the first time the University hosted the championships on its campus.

More than 500 student-athletes from the 10 OAC schools and more than 1,000 spectators attended the event. Each OAC team conducted a food drive; Muskingum won the Golden Fork award for the most donations and delivered all donations to the New Concord College Drive Presbyterian Church Food Pantry.

During the event, Tristan Makowski ’24 placed second in shot put, earning All-OAC honors and setting the Muskingum record in shot put for the 3rd time this season. 

The women’s 4x200 relay team finished third, earning All-OAC honors. The team includes Liberty Bunting ’26, Shannon Cooper ’27, Anna Lippiatt ’26, and Averi Wallace ’26.

During the 2024 Indoor Track & Field season, the BHWC hosted four additional collegiate meets, three high school meets, and the Ohio middle school state championships, bringing a total of more than 9,000 spectators to campus.

Director of Track & Field Operations Jake Gleason commented, “The BHWC sets itself apart from all other venues in our region. Teams and spectators alike are excited to attend events at Muskingum and enjoy the beauty of the building, the expansive views from the mezzanine, and the fan friendly amenities.”
