MOSCOW, Idaho – A trio of Lewis-Clark State College track and field athletes set school records and came within eyelashes of national qualifying marks on Saturday at the Vandal Collegiate, hosted by the University of Idaho.
Freshman Kaytlyn Coleman established a Warrior record in the weight throw with a heave of 15.97 meters that was a mere three centimeters shy of qualifying for the NAIA Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Her throw was good enough for third place overall, and bested Kirsten Smith’s LCSC mark set in 2010.
In the men’s weight throw, sophomore John Murray’s mark of 16.36 meters was .16 shy of qualifying for nationals, but also a school record.
The throw, which translates to 53 feet, 8.25 inches, eclipsed Murray’s mark of 48-.75 set last season.
Senior Kelsey Klettke finished the 3,000 meters in 10 minutes, 43.77 seconds, a time that surpassed the mark of 10:57.86 set by Kylie Astle.
Klettke’s time was good enough for seventh place on Saturday.
Jacob Wimpenny registered a personal best with a time of 4:35.35 in the mile.
The Warriors return to action at the Vandal Collegiate on Sunday.
