Track & Field Wraps up John Tierney Triangular
Jan. 17, 2014
MILWAUKEE –The Marquette University men’s and women’s track team resumed the indoor season on Friday evening at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s John Tierney Triangular at the Klotsche Center.
The Marquette women topped their counterparts from Milwaukee 84-49, while the men defeated Illinois-Chicago 86-32 and fell 78-55 to Milwaukee.
“The women came to play today across the board and we had some big performances in the field and on the track,” Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. “We’ve got a lot of new faces, especially on the distance side that really stepped up and did some nice things. Carlye Schuh had another huge long jump to win it, won the triple jump with a lifetime best and came up second with a big PR in the 60. She led the way but it was a team effort on the women’s side.
"I felt like we did some nice things in the field events for the men, but we were missing a few key people as we had some point scorers out. We were ahead after the field events but we didn’t get the job done on the track like we needed to."
Senior Carlye Schuh paced the Golden Eagles with a pair of event titles and a runner-up finish in the 60-meter dash. The Appleton, Wis., native notched a new personal best of 39 feet, 7 3/4 inches (12.08 meters) to win the triple jump and 19 feet, 4 3/4 inches (5.91 meters) to lay claim to the long jump crown. Her triple jump mark is the No. 2 distance in program history and she also moved into a tie for sixth on MU’s top-10 list in the 60 with a time of 7.78 seconds.
In the women’s high jump, freshman Omo Tseumah won the event for the second time in as many meets this year with a height of 5 feet, 6 inches (1.68 meters). Tatyana Pashibin and Bridget Bodee took second and third, respectively.
Marquette was the lone squad to field competitors in both the men’s and women’s pole vault where Joel Swanberg (14 feet, 7 1/4 inches/4.45 meters) and Abby Croft (11 feet, 7 3/4 inches/3.55 meters) overcame their teammates to win event titles. Swanberg’s mark ties him for sixth in program history. He also placed second in the long jump.
Junior Connor Stengel notched the No. 9 300-meter dash time on MU’s top-10 ledger with a time of 35.80, while freshman Brandon Bell landed himself in the same spot in the 60-meter dash (7.11 seconds).
In the women’s distance events, freshmen Alison Parker and Brittney Feivor won the mile and 3,000-meter run, respectively. Parker posted a time of 5:03.66 in the mile and Feivor’s time of 10:15.17 topped teammate Elisia Meyle’s PR of 10:16.42 in the 3,000.
Redshirt junior Bret Hardin won the men’s weight throw over junior William Koeck by just over two inches and catapulted himself to third in program history with a distance of 61 feet, 9 3/4 inches (18.84 meters). Koeck’s mark of 61 feet, 7 1/2 inches (18.78 meters) is also a personal best.
The Golden Eagles return to action on Saturday, Jan. 25 at the Badger Elite Invitational in Madison, Wis.
