Women’s Track & Field Wins Eight Events at Carleton Relays Posted on April 17th, 2021 by


NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s track & field team competed at the Carleton Relays on Saturday and won eight events.

Birgen Nelson (So., Edina) won both the 100-meter dash and 100-hurdles with times of 12.40 and 14.07, respectively. Her time of 14.07 in the 100-hurdles broke her own school record and is the top time in NCAA Division III. Nelson currently leads the MIAC in the 100-meter, 200-meter, and 100-hurdles.

Elizabeth Donnelly (So., Langely, Wash.) won the 800-meter with a time of 2:17.40. Halley Brocker (Jr., Ankeny, Iowa) took the podium in the high jump with a clearance of 1.53 meters. Doris-Klein Mor (Jr., Saint Peter) took first in the pole vault, clearing a height of 3.42 meters. Annika Poe (So., Big Lake) won the shot put, tossing the orb 13.03 meters. Alexys Guidry (So., White Bear Lake) won the discus with a throw of 38.97 meters. And Rachel Erickson (Jr., Starbuck) took first in the javelin with a distance of 33.13 meters.

In this meet we saw glimpses of where our seasonal peak will be in a few weeks,” Assistant Coach Nathan Harder said. “Today turned out to be some near perfect track & field weather, and we came out and did just what we’re supposed to at this point of the season. The results certainly speak for themselves as we went against some well-rounded schools in our conference. As usual, our ladies continue push the ceiling in performance as a solid team; there will be even more impressive performances as we move beyond the mid-point of the season.”

Gustavus hosts the Drake Alternative next Saturday.
