Saturday, May 1, 2004
MOORHEAD, Minn. - Sophomore Adam Wilson (Forest Lake, Minn.) launched a 51-11 1/4 throw at the Ron Masanz Invitational on Saturday night, earning him his third shot put win of the outdoor season.

Wilson, who has finished no lower than third place in the shot put at the five meets he has entered this season, remains the second-ranked thrower in the event by the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.

Junior Steve Schreiber (Forest Lake, Minn.) had the only other top-three finish for Bemidji State at the meet, tying for third place in the high jump with a leap of 6-6. The top finisher for the women’s squad was freshman Nicole Friend (International Falls, Minn.), who posted a fourth-place finish in the 400-meter dash (1:00.22).

The Beavers will now focus on the NSIC championships, scheduled for next Friday and Saturday in Duluth, Minn. Thanks to the performance of senior Caesare Stimson (Chisago Lakes, Minn.) at the heptathlon last weekend, the women’s team already leads the overall standings with 10 points.
