Sarah Pollmann is Conference Champion!
Second-year women's cross country runner Sarah Pollmann won the 2013 KIAC Women's Cross Country Championships on Saturday, Nov. 9. She finished the 5K race in 20:11, qualifying for the NAIA Championships on Nov. 23 in Lawrence, Kan. She is the second individual cross country runner in STLCOP history to win the conference meet. At nationals, she ran a 5K PR of 19:43 and finished 167th of 319 runners.
David Baker is the head coach for the Eutectic indoor and outdoor track and field teams. Practice begins when classes resume in January. The four to five meets during the season are held mostly on weekends. The season concludes in April with the KIAC Championship Meet.
Larson Sets Another PR at Illinois College Alumni Meet
Second-year thrower Becky Larson did on Friday, Feb. 21 what she's done at just about every meet over the past season and a half. She set a PR in both of her events -- the shot put and the weight throw. Larson is a prime example of the type of athlete Eutectic coach David Baker loves. "Becky comes and works hard every day,” Baker said. She's got a positive attitude and really puts a lot into her events." Larson is usually one of the smaller throwers at the meets, and though she's typically not at the top of the leaderboard, she keeps moving up. Baker has taken notice of the improvement. "Every meet-that's how often she improves on her personal record. Shot, weight, disc, hammer, you name it. She throws a little further each and every week. I hope and am starting to expect that she'll eventually get up there in the top 10 at meets."
Other top Eutectic performances:
Sarah Pollmann and Janki Patel finished third (5:42) and fourth (5:52, SB), respectively, in the mile. The two had exactly 18 minutes from the time they stepped of the bus until their race started. "We literally dropped them off about a quarter of a mile from the track and told them to start warming up,” Baker said. “Under the circumstances, they ran great." Suong Nguyen had a season best of 10.84 in the 60m hurdles, which was good enough for fourth overall. The team of Pollmann, Christy Hanks, Jamie Hundsdorfer, and Jackie Gosney set the school record in the 4x400m relay with a time of 4:53.75.
The Illinois College meet marked the final indoor meet of the season for the Eutectics. The team will next compete outdoors at the Washington University Invitational on March 28-29.
