The Tabor track and field team opened the outdoor season Thursday at the Southwestern Invitational in Winfield.
“Both men’s and women’s teams had good first-meet-of-the-year days,” coach Dave Kroeker said. “A number of personal records were set on the track and in the field.”
Women—Leading the way for Tabor was senior Emily Post, who qualified for the NAIA Outdoor National Championship in both triple jump and high jump.
Post claimed second in triple jump with a leap of 37 feet, 101?2 inches and in high jump (5-5).
Brielle Lund broke the school record in the 10,000 meters with a time of 39 minutes, 41.06 seconds, to place second. That time surpassed the 40:12.80 record set by Christina Addison in 2010.
Placing third was Emily Post in the long jump (17-61?4) and Tynan Honn in shot put (40-101?4).
Men—Junior Alex Grier led the way for Tabor with second-place finishes in the 100 (10.83) and 200 (21.86). Grier’s 200 time broke the school record set by Jason Graf in 1996 (21.96).
