Five Provisional Marks Hit at Wesleyan

Full Meet Results

LINCOLN, Neb.-Kate Walter's performance in the weight throw, Angela Adams' time in the 5,000-meter run and Tyler Shaw's finish in the 60-meter hurdles highlight Northwest Missouri State performances at Friday's Nebraska Wesleyan Invitational.

All three student-athletes hit provisional qualifying marks in their respective events. Walter's throw of 52-feet-10.75-inches is a career best and led her to a fourth-place finish in the event. Adams won the 5,000 with a time of 17:20.24. Shaw, an All-American in the 60-meter hurdles as a freshman last season, ran 8.1s in prelims, which is six one-hundredths from an automatic qualifying time. Shaw advanced to finals and placed third with an 8.14.

Ben McKim hit a provisional mark in the shot put and placed second in the event with a put of 56-feet-8-inches. A throw McKim made in December already allows him to punch his ticket for the national meet in March. Eric Rickert finished fourth in the shot put with a provisional-qualifying toss of 52-feet-9.5-inches.

Shaw finished second in the 200-meter dash with a career-best time of 22.36s, which is close to a provisional mark. John Miles missed a provisional mark in the 60-meter dash by two one-hundredths and won the event with a season-best time of 6.9s.

On the women's side, Johanna Avilez finished fourth in the 60-meter hurdles with a career-best time of 9.2s. After setting a career-high mark in the 5,000-meter run last week, senior Jennifer Dittburner set a personal-best in the 3,000-meter run this week, finishing sixth with a time of 10:58.97.

Lindsay Biermann placed third in the triple jump with a season-best leap of 35-feet-2.5-inches. Brittany Poole placed second in the 3,000-meter run with a time of 10:50.98.
