(Geneva, Ohio) After ten years in Johnson City, TN, the NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championship meet moves to Geneva, OH for 2011. The Cornerstone T&F teams competed in the GaREAT Collegiate Open hosted at the new Nationals venue and came away with four national qualifying performances and six personal bests.
The women's distance medley relay got things started on Friday night by running the second fastest time in school history. Audry Yonge, Amy Boyer, Julia Contreras and Jill Louisignau combined for a time of 12:30.84 placing third.
Saturday morning, Kelly Peterson replaced Boyer in the quartet for the 4 x 800 meter relay with nearly the same result, another third place finish. Their time of 9:51.39 was two seconds under the NAIA provisional standard.
Brandi Harr won the pole vault in a season best clearance of 11' 11.75" and improved her spot on the NAIA list.
Amy Boyer also improved her standing on the NAIA list with her 9.08 clocking to take fifth in the 60 meter hurdle finals.
Lauren Pierce lowered her best time in the 400 meters to 61.26 taking second in her heat out of 82 competitors.
Peterson also ran the open 800 setting a new indoor PR 2:24.86. In the previous heat, Katie Allers took fourth also running a new best of 2:31.23.
