NKU’s men’s and women’s track & field teams traveled to Bloomington, Ind. to compete in the Gladstein Invitational hosted by Indiana University Jan. 18.

 

Men’s team

 

Junior Kendall Ross set a new NKU record in the 60-meter dash for the men’s team. Ross finished in 7.47 seconds, beating out the record previously held by Henry McCormick (7.55) in 2009. In the 3000-meter race, long-distance runners sophomore J.J. Webber (8:34.75) and sophomore Zac Holtkamp (9:00.20) finished with personal bests. In the 5,000-meter race, sophomore Andrew Wolfer (16:00.12) also finished with a personal best.

 

Women’s team

 

Freshman Nicole Riveron set a new bar in the 400-meter dash (1:01.68), beating the old record by almost five seconds. Freshman Kendall Richmond beat her own record in the 60-meter hurdles (9.26). Caroline Dreyer (1:03.11) and freshman Alicia Follrod (1:03.24) also set new records. The Norse had two top-ten finishes in field events. Freshman Tyler Thomas finished ninth-place in the high jump with 1.58 meters and freshman Karena Fulks smashed the previous record in the long jump with 5.22 meters.

*Both teams’ next meet will be at the SPIRE Midwest Indoor Track & Field Open in Geneva, Ohio Jan. 25-26.
