It’s safe to say Dinsdale Morgan left a palpable impact on the NCAA Division II level despite only spending two years at Pittsburg State following a transfer from Kansas City (Kan.) CC.
After earning a pair of All-America honors in 1995 with top-5 finishes both indoors (400) and outdoors (400 Hurdles), Morgan hit his stride as a senior. He placed runner-up in the indoor 400 and then won the 400H title, the first of four in a row for the Gorilla track & field program (Class of 2006 inductee Brian Moorman won three consecutive from 1997 to 1999).
Morgan truly starred at the conference level, where he captured seven MIAA crowns in two years. He completed the 400-400H double twice outdoors and snagged two quarter-mile crowns indoors, in addition to winning the indoor 200 in 1996.
This is the third time that an athlete from Pittsburg State has been inducted into the USTFCCCA NCAA Division II Track & Field Athlete Hall of Fame. Morgan joins the aforementioned Moorman and Christine Allen Logue (Class of 1999) in that regard.
