Cold and windy weather can’t stop the Ichabods


On April 17 the Washburn track and field squad competed at the KT Woodman Classic at Wichita State University in Wichita, KS. Even though it was a cold and windy meet, the bods performed well and added one more NCAA Provisional mark, and 3 new school records.

The Washburn Men’s track and field team had some outstanding performances. Colton Dunkle threw the shot to a NCAA provisional mark of 16.50m (54-01.75), this mark puts him at number 35 on the national list. Romain Henry broke his own school record in the 110m hurdles with 0.01 to 13.92. Henry already got the NCAA Provisional mark, and now only needs 0.02 to get the first NCAA automatic qualifier for the Bods of this outdoor season. With his time of 13.92 he sits in 3rd on the national list. Collen McLain also broke a school record, McLain ran a time of 3:55.14 on the 1500m.

On the women’s side Isabella Hohl didn’t let the cold weather stop her and broke her own school record in the 100m with a time of 12.05, she’s now very close breaking the 12 sec barrier.

This week the track and field team will split up to two places. Some athletes of the distance squad will travel to Des Moines, IA, to compete at the Drake Relays on April 22-24. The rest of the team stays close to home to compete at the Pittsburg State Tune-Up in Pittsburg, KS, on April 24. This will be the last meet the Bods compete at before the MIAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships on May 7-9.
