Third-year Sarah Pollmann earned All-Conference honors and scored 11 of STLCOP’s 21 points at the American Midwest Conference Women’s Indoor Track and Field Championships on February 19 at Principia College. The Eutectics finished seventh of seven teams in their first-ever indoor conference championships, just behind Hannibal-LaGrange University who scored 26 points.
Pollmann claimed six points and All-Conference honors with a third-place finish in the 1000m run, breaking the STLCOP record with a time of 3:20.18. She also scored four points in the 1 mile run, finishing in fourth place with a time of 5:32.10 and claimed one of the four points earned by the fourth-place record-setting 4 x 400m relay. The rest of the relay team consisted of first-year Haily Finnegan, third-year Jamie Hundsdorfer, and first-year Hanna Teer.
Finnegan would also set the STLCOP record for the 600m run, finishing in fourth place with a time of 2:00.62. Hundsdorfer claimed fifth place in the 800m run (2:44.80) and second-year Janki Patel took sixth in the 1 mile run in 5:40.89.
The Eutectics will now focus on training for outdoor competition. Their first meet is scheduled for Saturday, Mar. 28, at the Central Methodist University Open in Fayette, Mo.
