The Tommie women’s track and field team had several good performances on Thursday at the Carleton Open on a sunny, breezy day in Northfield.
Athletes from Carleton, Gustavus and St. Thomas plus Division II’s MSU Mankato and MSU Moorhead competed in the non-team scored event.
UST posted three firsts and six runner-up finishes. Kayla Goeman was the Toms’ lone individual victor, in the 1,500 (4:48.06).
Sophomore Emily Van Heel took second in three events -- the 100 dash (12.63), the 200 (25.40) and triple jump (35-1 3-4), and ran on UST’s winning 4x100 relay (48.06). That relay time was just .40 off the Toms’ 2011 season best recorded in the final at nationals.
The Toms also got second-places from Amy Maas in the shot put (38-2 3-4) and the discus (131-8); Christina Roseske in the long jump (16-10 1-2); and Erin Statz in a fast 3,000 (10:05.97). Rozeske took third in the 100 (12.64).
Hannah Volkman was third in the discus (126-9), fifth in the hammer (133-10) and seventh in the shot put (36-10 1-2). Haley Zajec was third in the hammer (143-2) and seventh in the discus (120-3).
Fourths were recorded by Abby Baier in the pole vault (10-0); Mallory Burnham in the 200 (26.11); Erika Tipp in the 100 dash (12.71); and Larissa Peyton in the 1,500 (4:54.03). Burnham also placed fifth in the 100 dash (12.76) and fifth in the 100 hurdles (15.81). Baier also took seventh in the 100 hurdles (16.58).
In the 800, Erin Sheehan (2:26.51), Jen Strong (2:27.05) and Annie Keller (2:29.82) placed 5-6-7.
Sarah McNamara was sixth in the steeplechase (11:56.66). Shelby Yoakum placed seventh in the 3,000 (10:49.06). Jackie Destache placed seventh in the 400 hurdles (1:10.29). Leslie Terwilliger took fifth in the triple jump (31-5 3-4) and seventh in the long jump (14-9 3-4). Natasha Wright was seventh in the pole vault (8-0 1-2). Erin Daugherty was sixth in the triple jump (31-2 1-2) and seventh in the high jump (4-9).
The Tommies will compete April 14 at the UW-River Falls Invite.
