Track & Field - Sun, Mar. 31, 2013
Georgetown College men's and women's track and field teams tested their early season status against fellow Mid-South Conference foes this past weekend in the Lindsey Wilson College Invitational.
The men finished fifth out of eight, while the women were fourth. Keith Arutoff led the way for the Tigers in the field events. The senior set a new personal record in the hammer with a toss of 48.73, edging the Lindsey Wilson thrower by .7 meters. He scored another 10 points for the Tigers with his win in the discus with a throw of 43.14, almost two meters better than another Blue Raider.
"He just has meets where great things will happen and that is fun to witness," said GC coach Todd McDaniel.
Bea Cameron scored 20 points in seven field events for Georgetown's women and also helped in two of the relay races for 11 more points. The sophomore's best individual finish came in the long jump where she finished third out of 13 competitors with a jump of 5.12.
Marissa Hale was first in the 3,000 steeplechase. Tayler Godar was second in the 1,500 meter run and the 5,00 meter run. Danielle Buford was second in the 100 and 200 meter dash races.
For the men, Micah Crawford was first in the 200 meter dash.
Both teams travel to Louisville for the Bellarmine Invitational this weekend.
