MACOMB, Ill. - The Marquette University men's and women's track and field teams wrapped up the final day of competition Saturday at the Lee Calhoun Invitational in Macomb, Ill., with meet titles on both sides. The women claimed a victory by almost 40 points, while the men come out on top by two-and-a-half points over Augustana (Ill.).

"We had a pretty nice weekend," Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. "We had a lot of good personal-best performances, with Abby Croft became the fourth women's vaulter to clear 12 feet at Marquette. It was a nice competition and tune-up meet as we head out to California next weekend, where we will be looking to post some big marks."

The Marquette women captured titles in nine events, while the men claimed six.

Freshman Gretchen Homan claimed the 400-meter dash title with a time of 56.36 seconds, the No. 4 time in MU history.

Freshman William Koeck followed up a personal-record performance in the hammer throw Friday evening with a PR of 145-10 (43.54 meters) in the discus to place seventh.

Sophomore Abby Croft won the pole vault by reaching a height of 12 feet, 1 1/2 inches (3.70 meters). That mark ties her for second in progam history with Kristen Stoniecki.

Junior Lauren Darnall also competed in the pole vault for the first time since suffering a wrist injury prior to the start of the 2011 outdoor campaign. Darnall placed third with a height of 11-07.75.

Peter Bolgert and Patrick Maag were the top two finishers in the men's 1,500-meter run. Bolgert notched a time of 3:57.60, while Maag had a personal-best mark of 3:58.76.

The men and women both captured the sprint medley relay crowns even as both teams fell shy of reaching their goal of the Marquette record in the event. The men recorded a time of 3:30.30, while the women notched a time of 4:10.93.

Junior Sarah MacCourtney notched a personal record with a height of 5 feet, 7 inches (1.70 meters) in the high jump to win the event. Her mark ties her for fourth in Marquette history.

Three Marquette men recorded points in the hammer throw with Koeck recording a personal record distance of 179-07 (54.73 meters) to finish third.

The Golden Eagles return to action next weekend at three meets in the state of California.
