RESULTS

NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s track & field team took fifth place at the MIAC Indoor Championships on Saturday at St. Olaf with 59.5 points. St. Thomas claimed the title with 197 points.

The final day of the conference meet featured one All-Conference performance for the Gusties as Abigail Schnabel took third in the 1000 meters. DeAnna Giles was one spot shy of All-MIAC honors by taking fourth in the triple jump.

“Abby got a little bit of redemption after not performing as well in the 800 in day one,” Head Coach Dale Bahr said. “Today we benefitted from other teams not performing as well as they were projected and that allowed us to get a few more points. We were supposed to finish sixth and took fifth, so any time you take fifth at the conference meet you know you have a quality track and field team.”
