Women's Track & Field - Sat, Feb. 8, 2014
 

Chicago, IL – Illinois Institute of Technology's men's and women's track and field teams opened the 2014 indoor season this past weekend, competing at the "Windy City Rumble" hosted by The University of Chicago.

The Scarlet Hawks had some great opposition against Loyola University, Valparaiso University, University of Illinois-Chicago, Chicago state University, Elmhurst College, Lake Forrest College, Roosevelt University, Robert Morris University, North Park University, Saint Xavier University, Triton College and the host school, University of Chicago.

"I'm very pleased with the performances we turned in this weekend. The hard work is paying off and what's most exciting is the fact that there's room for improvement for the majority of our athletes. It was the first track meet experience for some of them and I'm looking forward to seeing them develop throughout the year" said head coach Calin Hantau.

IIT's women's distance medley relay team, consisting of April Wanagas, Veronica Hannink, Greta Zola, and Anne Crotteau, finished third in the first track event of the day, with a time of 13:54.96.

Joe Yassin and Teva Venet set two school records each in the field events.  Yassin, a freshman from Barrington, IL finished second in the shot put amongst non-Division 1 institutions, with a throw of 12.93m/43-05.25.  Yassin set a school record in the weight throw as well, with a throw that measured 9.30/30-06.25.  Teva Venet had a very successful first showing wearing the Illinois Tech uniform.  The Livermore, CA freshman finished third overall and first among Non-Division 1 competitors in the Men's long jump with a 6.34m/20-09.75 performance, bettering the school record by 9 cm.  Venet returned later in the day and competed in the triple jump, finishing third with a new school record as well, 12.35m/40-06.25.

"It was great to see Joe and Teva compete so well in their first collegiate meet.  I have no doubt that they will get better and continue to rewrite IIT's school record books," added Hantau.

Most of IIT's men and women competed in two or more events over the weekend.  That was the case for Tyler Haag, which, in his third event of the day, the 200m, broke his own school record.  After competing in the 55m Dash and 800m, Haag shaved .27 sec from the previous 200m record and stopped the clock at 24.44 sec.

The Windy City Rumble was scored as a dual meet between Division 1 programs, and non – Division 1 programs.
