BSU wraps up regular season meets with record-breaking performances

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND Indoor High Performance Center) -- Two Bemidji State University track and field program records were broken during the UND Indoor Tune-Up Saturday during the team’s final regular season meet of the season. Sophomore Venice Stewart broke her own record in the 200-meter dash while freshman Ryne Prigge set her second school program record as a freshman, this time in the 800m run.

Stewart finished first in the 200m dash with an NCAA provisional qualifying time of 24.65 while Prigge took first in the 800m run with a program-record time of 2:16.77. The duo was part of 13 top-five finishes for the Beavers on the day.

Joining Stewart with an NCAA provisional qualifying mark was freshman Zoe Christensen with a second-place finish in the shot put. Christensen set a new personal record with a toss of 44-feet-09.00-inches in her only event of the day.

In total, the Beavers finished with 14 personal record marks on the day.

Bemidji State travels to Mankato, Minn., Feb. 22-23 to take part in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Indoor Championships.
