Audrey Weber '09 won the 800-meter run with a time of 2:14.85, which was good enough to meet the NCAA Division-III provisional qualifying time. Lindsey Saunders '08 finished fifth, acquiring a personal best time of 2:18.53, and Jenny Ingebritsen '06 finished shortly behind with a time of 2:21.42.
The Ole 4x400 team finished fourth with a time of 4:04.56, less than four seconds behind Minnesota-Duluth, who claimed the race.
On the long-distance side, Kezia Manlove '06 ran impressively in the 1,500-meter race, finishing fourth with a time of 4:49.60. In the 5,000-meter run, Sarah Estill '06 and Erin Weier '07 finished third and fourth respectively.
In the 400-meter hurdles, Becca Trombly finished fifth with a time of 1:06.41.
Saturday's field events for the Oles also produced individual successes. In the pole vault, Elizabeth Ghandour '06 and Marla Nelson '06 finished third and fourth, respectively.
The perennially dominant Stacy Griffin '07 finished ninth in the shot put competition with a throw of 11.66 meters. Griffin also finished 10th in the discus throw with a toss of 37 meters and seventh in the hammer throw with a 41-meter hurl.
Highlighted by Weber's performance in the 800-meter race, it appears as though the Oles are headed in the right direction for the 2006 MIAC Championships, which will take place May 12-13 in St. Paul.
On Saturday, the Ole women will travel to St. Paul to participate in the Macalester Invite. Four days later, the squad will again travel to St. Paul, this time to the St. Thomas campus, to compete in the Tommie Twilight meet on Wed., May 4.
