Saturday, January 29, 2005

MOORHEAD, Minn. -- After his record setting performance last weekend, junior Adam Wilson
(Forest Lake, Minn.) followed up nicely with two first place finishes in the shot put (50-6) and the weight throw (52-6), helping Bemidji State's men claim second place overall at the Cobber Duals in Moorhead, Minn.

Following Wilson in the shot put were fellow teammates sophomores RJ Gross (Jamestown, N.D.) and Justin Cox (Princeton, Minn.) with second and third place finishes with throws of 46-10 and 46-8 respectively. Senior Travis Schwarz (Pine City, Minn.) recorded the only other first place finish
on the men's side of things capturing the high jump title with a leap of 6-2.

The women also had success in the field events, led by senior Erin Suhonen's (Wright, Minn.) first place toss of 42-8 in the weight throw, over two feet further than the rest of the competition. Suhonen also posted a sixth place finish in the shot put (34-2) for the women's team which finished in third place overall.

In other field events, the women notched in three more second place finishes by freshman Ashley Spolarich (Maple Lake, Minn.) in the triple jump (32-5), freshman Heather Sjolie (Fergus Falls, Minn.) in the high jump (5-1), and sophomore Linsey Bergeson (Trail, Minn.) in the shot put (38.0).

On the track freshmen Terrel Phillips for the men and Brianne Woinarowicz (Stephen, Minn.) for the women had the best finishes with their second place finishes. Phillips posted a time of 6.58 in the 55-meter dash while Woinarowicz finished the 200-meter dash in 27.62.

Both the men's and women's team captured second place finishes in both the 4x200-meter relay and the 4x400-meter relay.

After running for a combination of 16:39.01, junior Christa Pribula (East Grand Forks, Minn.) had herself a third-place finish in the 1500-meter run (5:12.49) and a fourth-place finish in the 3000-meter run (11:26.12).
