RICHMOND, Ind. – Adam Nadler, a senior at Hagerstown (Ind.) High School, has signed a letter of intent to compete in cross country and track and field at Indiana University East starting with the 2020-21 school year.

Red Wolves cross country coach Adam Mengel announced the signing Jan. 9.

Nadler competed in an Indiana regional meet in the 4×800 meter relay this past spring. He also ran to a top-four finish in the individual 800 meter run in the sectional meet. He was part of Hagerstown’s cross country team that qualified for an Indiana regional meet this past fall.

Nadler reports personal bests of 4:57 in the mile and 18:18 in a 5K cross country race.

Adam Jr. is the son of Adam and Elisa Nadler. He plans to major in education.

“IU East is local, and I wanted to run,” Nadler wrote of his college choice.

Nadler is among the early wave of signees in the IU East 2020 cross country/track and field recruiting class.

IU East is an NAIA program. The Red Wolf cross country and track and field programs have been represented at the NAIA national meet nine times in 11 years of NAIA competition.
