Women's Outdoor Track & Field - Mon, Apr. 11, 2011
Georgetown College's track and field team traveled to University of the Cumberlands this past weekend for its third meet of the season.
The women finished seventh out of 14 teams, while the men were ninth out of 16 teams. On the female side, the Tigers finished ahead of two Mid-South Conference schools and behind two.
Elisha Overpeck set a new record in the 1,500 with a time of five minutes and 56 hundredths of a second, placing seventh. She also finished fourth in the 5,000 meter run, improving her time from a week ago to 19:19.
Danielle Buford finished eighth in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.25. Finnja Ramcke's time of 13:02 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase was good enough for a fourth place finish.
The 4x100 meter relay of Caroline Hutson, Emily Buerger, Jasmine Strunk and Buford took seventh with a time of 53.26, an improvement from last week. The 4x800 meter relay team of Emily Steck, Caitlyn Anglin, Kelsey Barbato and Overpeck finished fourth.
The women had some solid field performances as well with Caitlyn Kogge throwing javelin for the first time. She finished fifth with a throw of 24.65 meters. Amanda Williams won the high jump by clearing 4-feet-10 inches, and Anglin was third in the same event.
Altogether the women scored 41 points, after managing just 27 a week before.
For the men, Grant Curran set a new record in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:00.31. Right on his heels was Tyler Doolittle in 2:00.81.
Corey Hatfield placed third in the steeplechase, setting a personal record in 10:26.
