The Tommie women sit in fifth place out of 12 teams, just 15.5 points out of the lead, going into Saturday’s final day at the MIAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Moorhead.
Coach Joe Sweeney’s Tommies have many strong events to go and are poised to make a charge up the leader board on Saturday.
With seven of 22 events completed, Gustavus (48) leads followed closely by Hamline (44), Concordia (40.5), Carleton (36), St. Thomas (32.5), St. Ben’s (25) and St. Olaf (21).
Seven individual races held Friday prelims – the 100 and 400 hurdles and 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1,500. St. Thomas has the most qualifiers into Saturday’s finals in those events with 15 followed by seven for St. Ben’s, six for Concordia and St. Olaf, and five for Carleton. UST is also expected to score well in the 4x100 and 4x400 relays.
On Friday, UST got a 2-3-8 finish for 15 points in the discus from Hannah Volkman (138-8), Amy Maas (137-10) and Haley Zajac (125-6). In the hammer, Zajac (153-3) and Maas (141-10) placed fifth and eighth for five more points.
Erin Statz took second in the 10,000 (36:40.47) to add eight points. Christina Rozeske placed sixth in the long jump (17-5 1-4). Abby Baier tied for seventh in the pole vault (9-10 1-2).
