The Maverick distance crew was lead by a dominant double from freshman Willa Koenig. Koenig hit two PR's on the day starting with the women's 1 mile finishing in a time of 5:21.06. Following that performance, a couple hours later Koenig took the track in the "A" section of the 3,000m and finished 11th with a time of 10:30.27. A time which sits only 1.42 seconds outside of the UNO Maverick's Top Ten History board. Freshman Renata Valquier-Chavez led the distance team in the women's mile with a 14th place finish in a time of 5:15.13, a lifetime best. Followed closely by Junior Kayla Sabotin (5:19.01) in her first indoor race of the season. Junior Alyssa Averhoff lowered her PR in the mile by 2.35 seconds clocking a time of 5:22.60.
In the "B" Section of the 3,000m, junior Rosie Gensichen led from tape to tape to take the heat win with a time of 10:52.21, a season's best. Followed closely by sophomore Annie Catania who finished in 11:06.36, crushing her previous best by 8.17 seconds.
The Mavs are back in action this upcoming weekend (1/28) at the Jack Johnson Invitational at the University of Minnesota.
