Medford, Mass. - March 2, 2019 - Junior Tyler Hansen (Shelton, Conn.) won the 200 meter dash to lead a group of three men from the Springfield College men's track and field program that put forth their final effort for qualification into the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championship at the Tufts National Qualifying Meet on Saturday afternoon.
