Women's track sets two new marks at St. Cloud

by Colin Beltz

Two Cobber women set Concordia all-time track records and five men qualified for the MAIC meet last weekend at the Husky Open at St. Cloud State.

Sophomore Sara Severson set a personal best in the pole vault with a 7-6 mark. This now stands as the new Concordia record.

Senior Shannon Frey was the other record-breaker as she shattered the 20-pound weight throw mark with a throw of 47-11 3/4. It earned her first place at the meet and qualified her for the MIAC and national meets at the end of the indoor track season.

In the same event, first-year student Becky Kearns placed sixth with a toss of 43-3/4. The throw placed her second all-time at Concordia, earning her places at the conference and national meets.

Three other women will join Frey and Kearns at the MIAC meet. Junior Michelle Haugen qualified with a time of 28.2 seconds in the 200-meter dash. Her time is also the sixth best on record at Concordia.

First-year students Kathryn Holthus and Amanda Glas also secured spots in their events. Holthus ran a personal best 1:03.54 in the 400-meter run and Glas made a 36-9 3/4 throw in the shot put.

Men's Track

For the men, junior Adam Lovehaug qualified for the MIAC meet in both the 55-and 200-meter races.

He placed 11th in the 55-meter with a 6.73 and qualified in the 200-meter race with a time of 23.6.

Junior Chad Anderson placed eighth in the 400-meter race with a 52.12 and will be in the MIAC meet, as will Bill Keating. He placed 17th and qualified in the mile run with a 4:34.29
