Tommies Reign In MIAC Record 21st Consecutive Title!
- Men's MIAC Final Results
MOORHEAD-- The title was never in jeopardy as St. Thomas breezed to their 21st consecutive MIAC Indoor Track and Field Championship. The crown for the Tommies sets a new MIAC record for most consecutive championship titles in a single sport. The old record was held by the St. Olaf swimming and diving team, which won 20 straight championships from 1980-1999. 

St. Thomas entered the final day with a 37-point lead and quickly built the margin to over 50 points. In the end, the Tommies scored a total of 191.0 points and beat runner-up St. Olaf by 78 points. The Oles leapt over St. John's in the final event of the meet to grab second place. They finished the meet with 113.0 points compared to 104.0 for the Johnnies. Hamline hung on to fourth place on the final day, finishing with 83.0 points and claiming their highest indoor finish since they also finished fourth in 2000. Bethel scored 63.0 points to round out the top five.(More)
St. Thomas Methodically Claims Another MIAC Women's Track and Field Crown!
- Women's MIAC Final Results
MOORHEAD-- St. Thomas only won three events on the second day, but scored enough points to win their sixth consecutive MIAC Indoor Track and Field Indoor Championship. The victory is also their 18th title in the 21-year history of women's indoor track and field.

The host Cobbers held off the charge of three teams to finish second. After scoring 58 points in the opening day, they totaled 59 on the final day to finish with 117.0 points. It was their highest team total since 2001 when they also finished second. Gustavus finished with 99.0 total points to claim third place. The Gusties topped a group of three schools that all finished within eight points of each other. St. Mary's finished fourth with 94.0 points and St. Ben's was a close fifth place with 91.0 points. For St. Mary's it was their highest indoor finish in the history of the women's program. The previous highest finish was seventh place back in 2001.(More

Tommie Boys of Indoor Position Themselves to Make History After Day 1 at MIAC Men's Meet.
- Men's MIAC Day 1 Results
MOORHEAD-- Like the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano, or the boys of summer heading south for spring training, the St. Thomas men's track and field team has once again positioned themselves atop the MIAC leaderboard after day 1 at the MIAC Indoor Track and Field Championship Meet.

The Tommies won four events in the first day of competition and built a tidy 37-point lead heading into the final day of the event. St. Thomas has 93.0 points and seems destined to run away with their record-setting 21st consecutive MIAC indoor crown. If they are able to hang onto the lead in the final day of competition, then the Tommies will break the conference record of 20 straight MIAC championships held by the St. Olaf swimming and diving team from 1980-1999.(More)

Grigsby Gallops St. Thomas Into Familiar Position After Day 1 at MIAC Women's Meet.
- Women's MIAC Day 1 Results
Moorhead-- Kristal Grigsby helped power St. Thomas into the lead after the first day of the 2005 MIAC Indoor Track and Field Championship Meet. The Tommies are 24 points clear of Concordia and 29 points ahead of third-place St. Mary's. St. Thomas is on track to win the MIAC meet for the sixth consecutive season and 18th time in the 21-year history of the competition.

Grigsby, a junior All-American from Minneapolis, became the first athlete in the history of the MIAC to break the 19-foot barrier in the long jump. Grigsby launched a jump of 19-0 in the qualifying round of the competition and ended up winning the event by over six inches. The mark sets an MIAC meet record, is the farthest jump in the nation this year and breaks her old school record, which she set last weekend. She rounded out the first day of competition by also winning the high jump and finishing third in the 55 meters.(More)

Friendt Overtakes Sundquist to Make St. Mary's Multi-Event Capital of the MIAC!
- Men's Heptathlon Final Results
MOORHEAD-- Rob Friendt from St. Mary's staged a second-day rally, and pulled off the victory over defending champion Evan Sundquist of St. Olaf in the MIAC heptathlon. Friendt overcame a 12-point deficit heading into the final three events and won by 219 points. His total of 4,882 points sets a St. Mary's school record and is the highest total at the MIAC championship meet for the event since the men's event was changed for the pentathlon to the heptathlon last season.

Friendt joins fellow Cardinal athlete Ashley Dingels as conference multi-event champions. That feat marks the second straight season that both the pentathlon and heptathlon champions have come from the same school. Last year, Sundquist won the heptathlon and Ole women's athlete Becky Peterson won the pentathlon.(More)

St. Mary's Multi-Event Queen Reigns in MIAC Pentathlon as She Breaks MIAC Record!
- Ashley Dingels breaks MIAC, Olson Forum and St. Mary's records on her way to pentathlon title.
- Women's Pentathlon Final Results

MOORHEAD-- St. Mary's athlete Ashley Dingels reestablished herself as the queen of the MIAC multi-events as she cruised to the victory in the MIAC Pentathlon held at Concordia College. Her total of 3,317 points sets a new MIAC record. It also betters the Olson Forum record and narrowly breaks her own St. Mary's school mark. The old MIAC mark was 3,274 points held by Colleen Landwehr of St. Thomas. The Olson Forum record was 3,249 points, which was set by Annie Goodson of the University of Mary and Dingels' school record was 3,306 which she set earlier this season. 

Dingels now owns both the MIAC indoor pentathlon record and the outdoor heptathlon record. She set the heptathlon record the last time an MIAC championship meet was held at Concordia. She won the 2003 outdoor meet with a total of 4,641 points. She won both the 2003 pentathlon and heptathlon before sitting out most of last season with a knee injury.(More)
Sundquist and Friendt Wage Track Battle in MIAC Heptathlon.
- Defending champion Sundquist leads after day one, Friendt wins three events and is only 12 points behind.
- Men's Heptathlon Through 4 Events
MOORHEAD-- St. Olaf senior standout Evan Sundquist placed himself in position to capture his second consecutive conference heptathlon title. Sundquist battled to a final total of 2,739 points after day one at the MIAC heptathlon held at Concordia. His lead is only 12 points as Rob Friendt from St. Mary's, who won three of the four events and continues to hang with the defending champion.

Sundquist, who amassed 4,581 points in winning the crown last season, did not place lower than second place in any of the first four events. He won the shot put with a toss of 40-10.25 and finished second in the 55 meters (6.85), long jump (20-10.75) and high jump (6-0.75). His highest point total of the first day came in the first event, when he scored 767 points in the 55-meter dash. Sundquist scored at least 630 points in all four event in the first day of competition.(More)
