Winter's Victory in 800 Meters Highlights Final Day at Meyo Invitational

Feb. 5, 2011

Complete Results

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Sophomore Kyle Winter turned in a first-place finish in the 800-meter run and recorded the fifth-fastest time in school history as the Marquette University men's and women's track and field squads concluded action Saturday afternoon at Notre Dame's Meyo Invitational. 

"Kyle ran a really good race today and recorded a lifetime best including both indoor and outdoor competition," head coach Bert Rogers said. "He won the unseeded heat but still would have been fast enough to finish fifth in the seeded race."

Winter's time is three seconds off the NCAA automatic-qualifying mark of 1:48.00 and is the ninth-fastest time turned in by a BIG EAST Conference student-athlete this season.

Senior Lauren Darnall turned in another solid performance in the pole vault by reaching a height of 3.85 meters to place fifth in the event. Darnall fell short on all three attempts at 4.00 meters, but her mark tied the second-highest vault of her career.

"Lauren has been working hard but is not quite there yet," Rogers said. "She had some good attempts at four meters, but she still has a little work to do to reach that height."

Although not in the prestigious "Meyo Mile," junior Blake Johnson turned in a BIG EAST Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships-qualifying mark of 4:14.54 in an unseeded heat of the mile. Jack Hackett and Evan Ross were unable to finish the race for Marquette. 


 

 

"The mile heat for the guys was kind of ugly this afternoon. Evan Ross got caught up in a group of runners and Jack Hackett limped off the track as neither of them were able to finish. Blake was able to get through the race and finish strong," Rogers said.

Notre Dame sophomore Jeremy Rae won the Meyo Mile in under the four-minute barrier with a time of 3:59.62.

In the men's 3,000-meter run, sophomore Patrick Maag and senior Peter Bolgert each set personal bests. Maag finished 16th overall in 8:42.47, while Bolgert placed 20th in 8:46.57.

Junior Stephanie Grant turned in a BIG EAST mark of 57.80 seconds in the 400-meter dash.

The Golden Eagles' only other event victory over the weekend was senior Nick Szczech's time of 14:17.52 in the 5,000-meter run. That time is the nation's 10th-fastest time this season and the third-fastest in Marquette history.

Another solid mark was turned in Friday evening by Sarah Ball in the 1,000-meter run as the freshman notched her second freshman record of the season with a time of 2:55.80. Ball's time is the sixth-fastest in school history and placed her ninth in the event at the meet. She also set a freshman record earlier this season in the 600-meter run.

The Golden Eagles will return to action Friday, Feb. 11 at the Hoosier Hills Invitational in Bloomington, Ind.
