Women's Track Takes Second At Border Battle
Posted: Saturday, February 12, 2005
NORTHFIELD, Minn. - The UW-Eau Claire women's indoor track and field team took second place out of four teams at the Border Battle hosted by St. Olaf.
Wisconsin won the annual events as UW-Stout finished in first place with 186 points followed by the Blugolds with 168. St. Thomas and St. Olaf rounded out the four finishers.
Eau Claire was once again led by Jen Stafslien (Sr.-Onalaska/West Salem), who emerged with three victories on the day. She won the 55-meter hurdles in a time of 8.51 seconds while also winning a pair of field events. Stafslien was victorious in the long and triple jumps, posting a jump of 5.40 meters (17-8?) in the long jump and 11.39 meters (37-4?) in the triple jump.
Counting Stafslien's victory in the hurdles, the Blugolds claimed six first-place finishes in the track portion of the Border Battle. Tawny Johnson (Fr.-Baldwin/Baldwin-Woodville) won the 200-meter dash in a time of 27.50 while Kristi Hansen (Sr.-Rosemount, MN) won the 400-meter run with a time of 1:00.67. Christina Locke (So.-Racine/Horlick) earned a victory in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:22.41 while Molly Warner (Fr.-Mosinee) won the one-mile run, completing the distance in a time of 18:51. The Blugolds took the top four places in the one-mile run event. Eau Claire's 4x200-meter relay team also was victorious on the day.
Aside from Stafslien's wins in the long and triple jump events, Stephanie Barnes (So.-Sauk City/Sauk Prairie) had a great day, winning the pole vault with a school-record height of 3.66 meters (12-0). The distance was also a facility record and a provisionally qualifying mark for national competition.
The Blugolds will be back in action next Friday for the UW-Stout Invite.
