Track & Field - Sun, Feb. 5, 2012

PARKSIDE, WI - In their fourth Indoor Track and Field meet of the season the men of IIT continue to shine.  "It was another day with some great performances both on a National level and a personal level" Stated Coach Kopinski.  It is the first time in IIT history, (IIT indoor track & field was made a varsity sport in 2012) a member of men's team has qualified for the NAIA National Championships.  Phillip Cano covered the 1000m distance in a time of 2:32.93 which is faster than the national 'B' standard qualifying time.  It was good enough for silver in the event.  He will now have the opportunity to toe the line with the best runners from around the country in three weeks at the Spire Institute on Ohio. 

Another school records was set in the men's 200m dash.  Freshman Tyler Haag started off his season with a strong double. He ran 7.17s in the 55m dash and followed up with a school record sprint of 25.04s in the 200m dash.  Kevin Logan was right on his heels, recording a 7.21s in the 55m and a personal record 25.58s in the 200m.

In the 3000m event, senior Phil Theisen ran a huge personal best with a time of 9:11 and is now the second fastest individual in school history for this event.  Also competing in the 3k event were Andrew Montague (9:44), Sam Wietlispach (9:49 PR), Peter Lau (10:37 PR), John Pasowicz (10:44 PR), Jeff Somerfield (10:54 PR), and Felipe Prada (10:58 PR).

In the 1000m race, Phil Cano finished 2nd with a personal and school record national qualifying time of 2:32.93, followed by Ethan Montague in 3rd (2:40 PR) and Theisen in 4th (2:41). In the Mile,  Kenny Murphy led the team in a time of 4:41, with Zach Gates not far off in 4:52, and Kraig Van Wieringen and Brian Lyles battling it out with times of 5:04 and 5:06 respectively. In the 600m dash, Cano led the pack again, winning the event in a time of 1:25.90. Trailing him were Wes Villalobos (1:28) and Van Wieringen (1:35). Ethan Montague ran a solid 800m race, clocking a 2:03.41, just ahead of Murphy (2:05) and followed by Colin McQuone (2:13).

The men's 4x400m relay competed well despite some mid-meet adjustments due to injury, with Villalobos, E. Montague, Van Wieringen, and Gates running a composite of 3:46.91. The Distance Medley Relay, made up of Gates, McQuone, A. Montague, and Wietlispach, ran a 1st place time of 11:16.41, a season record.
