Bale earns all.America status

All-America honors have been awarded to Julie Bale ('82), Moorhead,  for  her  superior performance in the Association  of Intercollegiate Athletics for  Women (AIAW) Division III track and field meet held May 20-22 at Bloomsburg, Pa. Bale earned the all-America status by finishing sixth in the 200-meter dash with a time of :26:36. In addition, she took seventh in the 100-meter dash and ninth in the long jump. During  the  preliminaries  Bale recorded personal bests in each of these events.

On her way to the nationals, Bale placed first, second and third  respectively  in  the 100-meter, the long jump and the 200-meter at the Minnesota Intercollegiate  Athletic  Conference (MIAC) meet held at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minn., May 6-8. Overall the women's team finished a close second behind St. Thomas.

She was also a member of two MIAC-winning relay teams, the 400-meter team, which qualified for nationals, and the 800-meter medley team. Other members of the 400-meter team were Julie Carew ('82)  from  Wadena, Minn.; junior  Margo  Holm from  Moorhead;  and  Ruth Reimnitz ('82) from Bismarck, N.D. At nationals, a dropped baton prevented the relay team from placing.

Junior  Kristine  Freeman, Duluth, Minn., won the shot put event at the MIAC meet to qualify for nationals, where she finished eighth with a toss of 40'-l ¼".

Bale is the second Cobber in two years to gain all-America honors at the AIAW meet. Last year Linda Iverson ('8]), Fairview, Mont., took fourth place in the javelin.
