About this Article

Consistency has always been the hallmark of coach Renee Zellner's track and field teams at Harper College. And her Hawks teams aren't afraid to aim high, either. "We are going to try our hardest to take that No. 1 spot," said Zellner of the test awaiting Harper on Thursday through Saturday in the NJCAA nationals at Howard Community College in Columbia, Md. Having the home track could be a positive for the top-ranked Dragons men's team. Harper is ranked second nationally and is the defending champ, having won five of the last six national titles.
