Senior Dage Minors of the Franklin Pierce University Men’s Track and Field team was selected to represent Bermuda at the 2017 World University Games in Taipei, Taiwan, later this summer.
The decorated Vermont High School Champion and 2012 St. Johnsbury Academy graduate will compete in the 800 meters, scheduled Aug. 26th - 28th at the 20,000-seat Taipei Municipal Stadium.
Minors is the winningest student-athlete in the young history of Franklin Pierce’s Track and Field program. He is a five-time All-American, has represented Franklin Pierce at nine NCAA Championships and is an 18-time Northeast-10 Conference champion.
The World University Games, which offer Minors a chance to test his mettle against the world’s best college athletes, will mark his seventh time representing Bermuda on the National stage.
The level of accomplishment, and the work put into achieving it, is not lost on the Franklin Pierce University coaching staff.
