(Findlay, Ohio) Senior Janelle Brown scored a dominating win in the 3,000 meter race walk at the University of Findlay Indoor Classic.
Last year at this event, Brown won in a school record 15:20.50. This time, against a much stronger field, Brown blasted through the 15 laps in 14:40.34, chopping 40 seconds of the school record and winning by 50 seconds over Megan Furnish of Lindsey Wilson.
Behind Brown, Sunny DeJong and Monica Lawrence competed well in their first race walk event. DeJong placed eighth in 18:27.75 while Lawrence was tenth in 18:48.19. Both bettered the NAIA provisional qualifying standard.
Freshman, Liz Baller made her debut in the pentathlon taking 13th with point total of 1962 for the five events. Her efforts included a personal best 2:30.59 which was good for second.
