The Bluejays hosted teams from 12 other colleges at the annual Tabor College Invitational on Wednesday.
“We had a great day for a track meet,” coach Dave Kroeker said. “We had a lot of good competition and a number of fine performances.”
Three athletes on the Tabor women’s team turned in school-record performances.
Sarah Fogle won the 5-kilometer race in 19:51, finishing 19 seconds ahead of her closest competitor. Breanna Wray claimed in the hammer throw with a toss of 145 feet, 11 inches. Shelby Miller broke the record set by Janice Neufeld in 1977 in the 400-meter run.
Miller’s time of 59.51 put her in second place, and helped boost the team to a third-place finish behind Cloud County and Cowley County.
Also scoring for the Tabor women were: Aftan Lambert in the 800 (second in 2:27), Heidi Schmidt in the 1,500 (second in 5:10), Carrie Schroeder in the 3,000 steeplechase (third in 14:01), Miller in the 400 hurdles (fifth in 1:09), and Jennifer Schmidt in the 100 (sixth in 12.91).
In the jumping events, Ashley Malcom finished first in the high jump (5-11⁄2), second in the long jump (16-7), and third in the triple jump (37-1⁄2).
In addition to her record hammer throw, Wray claimed second in the shot put (40-91⁄2 ).
Estey Wichert took fifth in the hammer throw (122-1). Dana Champlin (second, 117-8) and Cindy Wertenberger (sixth in 104-0, 6th) in the javelin.
The Tabor men also placed third in a field of 13 teams, led by first-place individual finishes by Trent Voth and Aaron Jenkins. Voth ran the 110-meter hurdles in 15.06 and Jenkins covered 22-81⁄2 in the long jump.
Nathaniel Porter turned in a second-place time of 57.15 in the 400-meter hurdles. Caleb Schroeder (second in 2:01) and Zac Remboldt (fourth in 2:02) both scored in the 800.
