More records fall at Bison Classic
Thursday, February 19, 2004
FARGO, N.D. - Bemidji State indoor track and field head coach Craig Hougen expected to see some robust individual performances from his squad at tonight's Bison Classic, and he was not let down.

Sophomore Sara Olson (Fairmont, Minn.) launched a 45-2 1/4 toss in the weight throw at tonight's Bison Classic, breaking her own school record by almost three feet. Olson had previously set the school standard with a 42-3 1/4 hurl at the Super 8 Open three weekends ago.

Joe Ferraro's school shot put record was erased tonight after sophomore Adam Wilson (Forest Lake, Minn.) unleashed a 51-6 1/2 heave. The toss bested Ferraro's mark, set during the 2002 campaign, by half an inch. Wilson finished second in the Classic to unattached competitor John Gallagher, extending his string of top-three finishes in the shot put to six events.

Junior Steve Schreiber (Forest Lake, Minn.) and junior Caesare Stimson (Chisago Lakes, Minn.) each finished third in the high jump. Schreiber leaped 6-6 1/2, while Stimson successfully negotiated the bar at 5-2 1/2. Schreiber had three excellent attempts at 6-8 1/2, but just failed to clear it.

"We had a very good individual day all the way around," Hougen said. "Hopefully, we can turn this into a great team effort at the (conference) meet next week."

Tonight's meet marked the fourth-straight weekend that the squad has competed in the Fargo-Moorhead area. They will finally break that streak next Wednesday with a road trip to Wayne, Neb., site of the 2004 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Indoor Track & Field Championships. The meet is slated for February 26, 27, and 28.
