Molinaro will compete in the 800-meter elite race after accepting a bid to compete in the prestigious race ... Molinaro joins a field of three professional runners and two Division I athletes in the race ... The senior enters the race with a personal best indoor time in the 800-meter run of 1:51.03 ... Molinaro enters the race after winning the 1-mile run at the SPIRE Institute Midwest Open last weekend and being named the Ohio Athletic Conference Men's Track Athlete of the Week for his efforts ... "Matt's biggest challenge is believing he belongs," said head coach Jason Maus. "He knows this is going to be a really fast race and has been training hard for it. If Matt is able to manage his emotions, trust himself and not let the big stage get to him I think he will be fine. This is the best I have seen him look at this point in any of his four seasons with us. He really looks motivated to take that next step in being great. This is a very good opportunity for him and we are very excited to see him compete."
Head Coach Jason Maus: Maus is in his 9th season at ONU with a 413-99 indoor record, a winning percentage of .807.
