Cutler Places 10th at NCAA Division III Championships

WINSTON SALEM, N.C. – University of Massachusetts Dartmouth sophomore Kevin Cutler (Attleboro, Mass.) placed 10th in the men's high jump event this afternoon at the 2015 NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Making his second straight appearance at the national championship, Cutler cleared his second progression (1.99 m, 6-06.25) on his first attempt. The Attleboro, Mass. product missed his next three attempts at 2.04 meters to finish tied for 10th in the 15-person field.

Wisconsin La Crosse senior Dominique Neloms won the national championship, when he cleared 2.11 meters (6-11.00). Rhode Island College Steven Vasquez and Bluffton sophomore Trey Everett also registered a leap of 2.11 meters, but Neloms won the tie-breaker by virtue of reaching the mark on his first attempt.

Cutler advanced to the NCAA Division III Championship by winning the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Championship with his top qualifying mark this past weekend at the Armory in New York City. He also defeated the field at the Springfield College Invitational, when he posted a mark of 2.03 meters (6-08.00).
