A small selection of the SPU track athletes took a shot at improving their national qualifying times and distances at Saturday’s Last Chance Meet at the University of Washington. Some were not able to better their scores, but others delivered personal records and leaped into the record books.
Senior Eddie Strickler broke his own SPU record in the 800 meters with a time of 1:52.26. This time secured Strickler a place at the Division II Indoor Track and Field National Championships.
Sophomore Monica Anderson cleared 11-10 in the pole vault, a provisional qualifying height.
The women’s distance medley relay shattered a school and conference record. The team of freshman Jessica Hinton, freshman Jessica Pixler, junior Karin Rohde, and senior Jennifer Marsh finished in 11:45.92, breaking the old record by nearly 11 seconds.
Pixler was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference co-athlete of the week.
The national championships are March 9-10 in Boston, Mass.
