EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - The UW-Eau Claire women's track and field team was spread out over two states this weekend, competing in four different meets.
Friday and Saturday the Blugolds were in Iowa and Michigan, competing in the Drake Relays (Des Moines, Iowa) and the Gina Relays (Hillsdale, Mich.). On Friday a number of members also competed at Simpson College's Kip Janvrin Open (Indianola, Iowa) while some were in Dubuque, Iowa for the Loras College Open Saturday.
Hayley Suckow (Jr.-Elk Mound, Wis.) captured the Blugolds' best finish Friday as she won the pole vault with an NCAA Division III provisional qualifying height of 3.80 meters (12-5 1/2) at Simpson's meet.
At the Gina Relays on Saturday, Hannah Humbach (Jr.-Madison, Wis./Abundant Life) secured a Division III provisional qualifying time for the championship, as she won the 1,500-meter run in a time of 4:35.20.
Saturday at the Loras Open, Amy Morse (Sr.-Kaukauna, Wis.) won the discus with a DIII provisional qualifying toss of 45.20 meters (148-3). The Blugolds also had four other finishes of second place at the meet.
On Friday at the Gina Relays, Mary Palmer (Sr.-Anoka, Minn.) recorded a third place finish in the 10,000-meter run with a time of 35:59.05, an NCAA provisional qualifying time.
In the 400-meter dash at the Kip Janvrin Open, Laura Broner (Sr.-Madison, Wis./Memorial) took fourth place with a time of 59.66 while Suckow was ninth with a time of 1:01.28.
