NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The 1,000-meter run and sophomore Kate Hein in the 500 highlighted the first day of competition at the Meyo Invitational for the Marquette University men's and women's track and field teams Friday at the Loftus Sports Center.
"We had a pretty good day one with some good performances in the men's and women's 1,000-meter run with PRs and new BIG EAST qualifiers," head coach Bert Rogers said. "Carlye Schuh had a small PR in the long jump and Kate Hein had a nice PR in the 1,000 with the third-fastest time in school history. I thought we came and competed hard and we are looking forward to carrying some nice, positive momentum over to tomorrow."
Hein notched a time of 1:16.11 in the 500 to catapult her two spots up Marquette's all-time list and into third place in program history. Hein placed 14th overall in the event.
Evan Ross and Jack Senefeld turned in impressive performances in the 1,000 with the fourth- and fifth-best times in program history, 2:26.16 and 2:27.02, respectively. Ross placed 10th in the run and Senefeld finished 11th, while Ben Schmitz crossed the finish line in 18th place in 2:29.17.
All three Marquette runners in the women's 1,000 recorded conference-qualifying times with sophomore Sarah Ball leading the way in 2:56.78 to place 14th.
Sophomore Carly Schuh bettered her PR in the long jump with a leap of 18 feet, 8 1/2 inches (5.70 meters) to finish 16th.
