Seniors Jeffery Barnett (Fremont, Ohio/Ross), Ryan Haarer (Goshen, Ind./Northridge) and Nick Zak (Saint John, Ind./Hanover Central) were the three Thunder competitors to earn All-Region.

A total of 786 student-athletes garnered All-Region honors on the men's side.  The top-five individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region distinction, in addition to each member of the region's top-three relay teams. 

Barnett ranks second in the region in the long jump to earn All-Region honors with a season-best mark of 24' 1.75" which came at the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Indoor Championships and clinched the individual title in the event to become a three-time MIAA Long Jump Champion.  His mark was also a conference indoor record.

Haarer was named All-Region in the pole vault and ranks fourth in the Great Lakes Region in the event with a best effort of 14' 9.00".  Haarer recorded the mark early in the season in December in the Circle Logistics Aaron Porter Invite hosted by Indiana Tech.

Zak ranks fourth in the mile run with a season-best time of 4:14.61, which he set at the Wartburg (Iowa) Qualifier) to earn All-Region honors.  Zak improved upon his own school record in the event for the third time this season less than a week ago at Wartburg.
