COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s track and field team wrapped up the final day of competition at the MIAC Indoor Championships hosted by Saint John’s ON Saturday with a fifth place finish out of 12 teams. The Gusties scored 83 points on the two days trailing second place St. Olaf and Bethel by just eight. St. Thomas won the meet with a 171.

I loved the effort and energy our team brought this weekend,” Head Coach Aaron Lund said. “We scored points in every event today. With our underclassmen able to step up and score for the team, I attribute it to our veteran leadership instilling a competitive mindset and staying focused under pressure. Last year, the team also took fifth but this year scored 22.5 more points. Finishing only eight points out of second place, we are excited to take this momentum into our outdoor season.”

Gustavus was led on day two by a pair of all-conference performance relay teams. The Gusties also saw a handful of top seven finishers in every event Saturday:
