The Lawrence indoor track team traveled to Oshkosh last Friday to compete in the UW-Oshkosh Invitational. The men and women each took third place, with 41 and 44 points respectively. It was a great meet for the female jumpers. Senior Madeline Steininger performed strongly for the second week in a row, taking first place in the high jump with a jump of 1.62 meters and second place with a long jump of 4.80 meters. Following closely in Steininger’s footsteps was freshman Rose Tepper, who placed second in the triple jump and third in the high jump. Lawrence sophomore Emily Muhs also had a successful meet, finishing the 5,000-meter run with a time of 19:27:09, which placed her second of eight runners behind only Mallory Burk of UW-Oshkosh. The men’s team performed remarkably well against reigning national champions UW-Oshkosh. The men’s 4×200-meter relay took second place behind Ripon’s team with a time of 1:42.02. Sophomore Sam Estrem took fifth in the mile run with a time of 4:43.66, and senior Matt Frelich also finished fifth in the 800-meter run. Other notable finishes included those by sophomore Nick Kerkman, who took sixth place in the shot put with a throw of 13.25 meters, and freshman Sam Stevens, who took sixth in the 3,000-meter run. Coach Jason Fast is optimistic regarding his team’s in-season improvement, saying, “We [have] had thirty season-best performances and continue to evolve as competitors and get better every week.” The Viking indoor track team will try to continue that improvement Saturday, when they will compete in the UW-Stevens Point Quadrangular.
