Women's Track & Field - Sat, Mar. 31, 2012

CHICAGO, IL  - Last Saturday (3/31), the Scarlet Hawks participated in their first Outdoor Track and Field meet of the season at the Ted Haydon Invitational, hosted by the University of Chicago. Both the men‘s and women's teams competed well and there were a number of personal records on both sides.

The cold, dreary weather made it tough for the field events and sprinters to compete at their top level, but Whitney Theisen still took 3rd in the High Jump with a height of 1.53 meters, close to her best.  Emily Kraemer and Alex Songer threw the Javelin for their first time in competition, recording distances of 21.80m and 18.45m respectively, good bench marks to start the season. Kraemer is also slated to compete in the heptathlon later in the season, so she also ran the 100m, 200m, and 400m dashes (15.31 seconds, 30.79, and 69.07). Veronica Hannink competed in the 100m Dash as well, with a time of 14.15s, and the 400m Hurdles with a personal and school record of 1:11.02s, landing her in 3rd place. Jacqui Roche ran the 200m Dash for the first time (32.21s), along with Songer in 31.88s, a personal record. On the men's side, freshman Tyler Haag ran a strong 100m Dash in 11.96 seconds, and a personal best and school record in the 200m Dash (24.48s).

In the 1500 Meter Race, Phil Cano led then men in a time of 4:12.44, followed by Ethan Montague (4:14), and Colin McQuone (4:37) and Kraig van Wieringen (4:49). Montague, McQuone and van Wieringen also ran the 800m Race, in 2:03, 2:10, and 2:12 respectively, with McQuone recording a new personal record.

The 3 Kilometer Race had six men and women from IIT competing and performing very well.  Courtney Rouse led the Lady Hawks, finishing in a time of 10:41. Not far behind were Abby Jahn (10:55) and Jordan Kelch in 11:10, setting a new personal record.  The men's side was led by Kenny Murphy, running a new best time of 9:07 and setting a school record. Sam Wietlispach ran an excellent race as well, finishing with a new personal record of 9:19.39, followed by Peter Lau in 10:45.51.

In the final race of the day, the 5 Kilometer Race, even more records were set. Kira Vincent finished 10th and ran a huge personal best time of 19:29, followed by Maddy Jensen (20:29) and Erin Vincent (20:51). The men's race was even more exciting, with Phil Theisen and Zach Gates finishing 4th and 5th overall. Theisen ran a 35 second PR of 15:54, while Gates finished in 15:55. Also competing were Jeff Somerfield (18:26 PR), Felipe Prada (18:31 PR), and John Pasowicz (18:42).

The next meet for the Hawks is this Friday (women) and Saturday (men), April 6th and 7th, at the University of Chicago. The Chicagoland Outdoor Championships will host colleges and universities from all around the Chicagoland area.
