CHICAGO, IL - At the Women's Chicagoland Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, the Scarlet Hawks put forth strong efforts against some of the top teams in the nation, including many NCAA schools. The women's Distance Medley Relay punched their ticket to NAIA nationals by running a 12:44.54.  That time is faster than the minimum required for the ‘B' standard. They narrowly missed the ‘A' standard by .54.

The highlight of the women's day was the first event: the Distance Medley Relay; an event that has teammates passing the baton between four teammates all running a different distance.  The legs are a 1200m, a 400m, an 800m and finishing with a 1600m. With their school record time of 12:44.54, the team easily qualified for nationals with freshman Abby Jahn, junior Veronica Hannink, sophomore Jordan Kelch, and freshman Courtney Rouse. In their respective legs, Hannink and Rouse also ran personal record splits.

Next up was the 60 Meter Dash, with Hailey Kunkel and Hannink. Both ladies ran a personal best and new school record by clocking identical times of 8.95 seconds. They met again in the 200 Meter Dash, Hannink in front clocking in at 29.52s and Kunkel at 30.77s, followed by Alex Songer with a time of 33.04 seconds. In the 5 Kilometer race, Anne Crotteau ran a huge personal record time, finishing in 19:53, her first time under 20:00 in that event. The Mile run saw all three of the competing Lady Hawks recording new personal records. Rouse came back after her strong DMR leg to run 5:30 and land in 10th place, followed by Claudia Garcia (5:47) and Erin Vincent (5:51). Garcia and Vincent also ran in the 800m race, accompanied by Kelch, who led the way in 2:34. Vincent ran a new personal record of 2:36, and Garcia fought through with a time of 2:42. In the 3 Kilometer race, Kira Vincent set a 20 second personal record of 11:17, while senior Maddy Jensen ran tough, crossing the line in 11:24.

The Field squad had a tough day, but did well against the strong competition. Whitney Theisen took 7th in the High Jump, clearing 1.52 meters. Jacqui Roche took a shot at the Pole Vault, and while she did not reach the minimum height required to score, she did reach individual milestones. In the long jump, Natalie Mitrovic came close to her personal record, reaching 4.15 meters. She also competed in the Shot Put (9.89m), along with Emily Tilton (8.93m).

The last Indoor Track and Field meet before Nationals is Saturday, February 18th at the University of Chicago's Margaret Bradley Invitational. Events will begin at 11:30am, and both men and women will compete.
