Track teams combine for ten first place finishes

 -  -  38

It was a long Saturday for the men’s and women’s track teams on Feb. 11, as they traveled to Depauw University to compete in their fifth indoor meet of the season. The busses left at 6:30a.m. and arrived at 10:30, which gave the teams just a half hour to warm up before the meet started. Following the meet the teams did not arrive back on campus until 10:30 p.m. While the women collected four first place finishes, the men chipped in six. Sam Etter led the way for the Lady Pilots with the top performance in the 60m hurdles, meanwhile Irene Kangai won the 600m. Kate Carr continued her terrific season by claiming the top spot in the pole vault competition. The other event winner was the 4X400 relay team of Etter, Kangai, Dominique Dvojacki and Lauren Dudley.

On the men’s side, there was a tremendous presence by the Pilot throwers. BJ VanderZwaag was triumphant in the weight throw and Robbie Rose took the top spot in the shot put. Rose’s throw was an NAIA qualifier. Other event winners were Calen Boyd in the 60m and the 400m, Ahrin Lemacks in the 200m, and Tanner Foust in the high jump. Tim Sipe represented the distance team well with a second place finish in the 800m. The men’s and women’s teams will both travel to Cedarville next weekend to compete in the last indoor meet of the season.
