Track & Field takes 11 top-five finishes as hammer throw record broken

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- The Bemidji State University outdoor track & field team excelled at two meets Saturday as it earned event wins at both the Holst Invitational in St. Paul, Minn., and the St. John’s Invitational held in Collegeville, Minn. Junior thrower Zoe Carrasco broke the program’s hammer throw record for the third time this season as part of two event wins while senior Analise Fabre earned a win in the triple jump for the Beavers.

Carrasco’s first-place and record-setting throw measured in at 55.28 meters (181-04.25), over five feet farther than her previous record set April 9. The throw at the Holst Invitational hosted by Concordia University-St. Paul ranks 13th in NCAA Division II and second in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Carrasco also earned a win in the shot put with a mark of 14.10m/46-03.25, which joined her hammer throw as NCAA provisional qualifying marks.

Fabre earned an event win in the triple jump at the St. John’s Invitational with a leap of 11.04m (36-02.75). Junior Reygan Brown followed in second in the triple jump with a mark of 10.72m (35-02.00).

In total, Bemidji State recorded 11 top-five finishes between the two meets with 35 personal records set.

The heptathletes of Libby Christenson, Emily Curtice, Natalie Fultz and Aneesa Tucker will complete the heptathlon with the long jump, javelin and 800m run beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday in Collegeville, Minn.
