Slippery Rock sophomore David Reinhardt of Bradford won the NCAA Division II championship in men's javelin Saturday at the Outdoor Track and Field National Championships at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich.

Reinhardt's third and final throw of the preliminary round measured 225 feet, 10 inches. It moved him into the finals, and his toss stood up as the best of the meet. He placed 15th in the event last year.

Reinhardt, seeded 11th in the javelin, earned his first career All-America honor. He became the fifth athlete in Slippery Rock history to win a men's outdoor track and field national title.
