BYU track: Cougars qualify athletes for regionals at Stanford
Andrea Nelson Harrison led the Cougars at the Stanford Invitational this weekend with her performance in the 3000m steeplechase.
Harrison completed the steeplechase with a time of 10:09.86, which is a new personal record for her. Based on results as of last weekend, this new mark pushes her to be one of the top five steeplechasers in the country.
"We have had a phenomenal meet, a lot of qualifiers for regionals,” head coach Ed Eyestone said. “Coming into the meet we were hoping for 14 qualifiers, and now I think we have 17 qualifiers.”
Carrie Jube and Lindsey Sowards Nielson ran the 5000m and finished with marks of 16:44.54 and 16:44.95, respectively. Kaylee Packham ran the 100m hurdles with a time of 15.03 and the 400m hurdles with a time of 60.36.
Shea Martinez ran the 800m with a time of 2:09.19. Stewart also ran the 800m with a time of 2:12.11. Meaghan Heffelfinger earned fifth place in the hammer throw with a mark of 52.95m. Heffelfinger also took second in the discus with a throw of 46.53m. Madison Pachner finished in third in the discus with 44.56m.
