Women's Indoor Track & Field - Thu, Mar. 3, 2011
 (Geneva, Ohio) On the opening day of competition in the 31st Annual NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships, Cornerstone women competed in three events.

Amy Boyer stayed busy the entire day competing in the pentathlon. In the first event, also her best, the 60 meter hurdles, Amy ran 8.97 which was good fifth of the field of 16 and worth 916 points. In the high jump the senior from Phoenix, AZ cleared 5' .5" for 666 points before moving to shot put. Her 31'' 11.25" effort added 512 points.

After a person best of 17' 2" in the long jump, Boyer headed into the final event in seventh place. To move into sixth she needed to finish at least 23 seconds ahead of Milika Tuivanuavou of Fresno Pacific. Since Tuivanuavou is not a strong 800 meter runner and Boyer is, Amy attacked the first 200 meters in 33.6 and passed halfway in 1:10.8 with a ten second lead over the Fresno Pacific competitor. Boyer pressed all the way to the finish earning a new personal best of 2:23.80, worth 773 more points for a total of 3490. Tuivanuavou faded to 2:56.77 giving Boyer a margin of over 30 seconds and moving her into sixth place for the final All-America spot.

Natasha Miller of Biola successfully defended her 2010 title with a meet record score of 4032. Boyer broke her own school record adding 22 points to the previous mark.

In the relay semi-finals, CU's distance medley of Audry Yonge, Lauren Pierce, Julia Contreras and Jill Louisignau took 22nd in the field of 32 runnin 12:39.44. The 4 x 800 squad of Kelly Peterson, Liz Baller, Katie Allers and Mindy Lewis ran 9:57.68 for 19th.
