Mid Distance

Members of the Maverick Mid-Distance Crew had a great Saturday showing in Brookings. Starting with the women's 1 mile run, freshman Sarah Steffensmeier crossed the line with a PR time of 5:22.45, a 9.15 second improvement over her previous best. Freshman Anita Jenkins also had a strong finish with 5:25.13, an overall lifetime PR. In the 800m sophomore Lauren Houston finished 8th in the 800m with a time of 2:15.82 and senior Alyssa Thavenet followed directly behind in 9th with a time of 2:16.06. Both of which sit within the top 8 of the Summit League in the event.


Freshman Sasha Quattlebaum took flight in women's long jump making the finals of the event and finishing with a longest jump of 16' 9.25", a season's best. Quattlebaum also ran a time of 9.16 in the women's 60m hurdles showing great consistency as she remains in the top 8 of the Summit League in the event.


Sophomore Anna Edet led the Mavericks with the best place finish in the Weight Throw. She tossed a 48' 11.75", good enough for 14th.


Freshman Sydnee Mitchell-Jemison ran a season best time in the 400m, clocking a 1:00.80. Sophomore Daylee Olsen completed her first 600m of the season with a time of 1:44.80. Freshman Brekk Flax completed her first 200m of the season with a time of 28.18.


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.
