The Lawrence University men’s and women’s track teams traveled to UW-Whitewater last weekend to compete. While neither side was consistent across the board and many usual top performers failed to meet expectations, there were still some standouts.

On the men’s side, the 400-meter relay team placed 1st with a time of 46.84, narrowly beating out Judson University’s side, which came in 2nd in 46.99. Tom Coben, a junior, also placed high for Lawrence. Coben grabbed 3rd in the 10,000 meters with a time of 36:33.30.

Consistent performers David Zane and Sam Stevens competed in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Zane took 5th in 10:17.54, with Stevens right on his heels. Stevens finished in 10:18.58.

The women’s team continued to struggle in competition. Their lone standout performance came from sophomore Rose Tepper, who placed 3rd in the high jump, her main event. Tepper leaped 5 feet, 1.75 inches for the finish. Both teams will compete in the MWC Championships May 13 and 14.
