Men's Results | Women's Results

LINCOLN, Neb. - Anna O'Brien set the school record in the 1,000-meter run by over two seconds, running 3:01.99 at the Prairie Wolf Invitational. O'Brien broke the 3:04.28 mark set almost 10 years ago to the date (Feb. 20, 1998) by Amber Martin.

Sheldon Cook won the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.94, missing the provisional qualifying mark by four-hundredths of a second. The women's 4x400-meter relay team of Audrey Bailey, Hannah Henry, Alissa Miller and Bridget Kleine won with a time of 3:57.42.

Cook lowered his personal record by a tenth of a second. The women's 4x400-meter relay team came within .33 of breaking the school record set 20 years ago in 1988.

Ben McKim finished third in the shot put, throwing 50-5.25. Kendall Wright placed first among non-Division I and unattached athletes in the long jump, finishing fifth overall with 22-1.

Rachel Lewis led the women sprinters, finishing fifth in the 60-meter dash in 7.82 seconds. It's the fastest time recorded by any Bearcat this season and is sixth in all-time performer lists.

Five was the magic number for Halley Carlson, who finished in the top five of the high jump for the fifth meet this season, jumping 5-5 in a fifth-place finish.

Up Next: Northwest travels to Joplin, Mo., Feb. 29-March 1 for the MIAA Championship.
