Falcons Notch Personal Bests On Split Squad Saturday

Posted: Updated:
The Bowling Green State University track and field team notched nine personal bests and added two more Mid-American Conference automatic qualifying marks Saturday at a pair of meets.
 
Sophomore Jasmine Redman started the day off early in the morning at the Mt. SAC Relays in California. She hit the MAC automatic qualifying mark in the 5000 with a time of 17:01.85, a time that was almost 11 seconds faster than her previous best. She ran the race after 1 am Eastern time early Saturday morning.
 
The remainder of the team competed at the Kentucky Relays Friday with strong results in almost every event competed in.
 
Brittany Sinclair hit the MAC automatic qualifying mark in the 400 with a time of 55.92 seconds, just .02 seconds shy of her career best. The time marked the 10th MAC automatic qualifier this year for the Falcons, three more than the team had in all of 2013.
 
Sinclair also led a trio of Falcons that set new PRs in the 200. She ran the distance in 25.16 seconds, followed by Brianna Johnson with a personal best time of 25.21. Gabrielle Edwards also established a new personal record with a time of 25.36.
 
Brooke Pleger remained unbeaten in the hammer throw this year, winning the event with a toss of 211-feet-5. Kori Reiser placed fourth with a personal best throw of 184-10 and Tina Perrine was 10th at 175-10.
 
Alicia Arnold set a personal best in the 100 and placed 12th in 12.14 seconds, a time that places her seventh in BGSU history. Johnson added her second PR of the day with a time of 12.33.
 
In the discus, Reiser posted a second personal best on the day and placed 10th at 147-8. Perrine was close behind at 145-10 for 12th place.
 
BGSU will return to action with another split squad weekend as the Falcons take part in the three-day Gina Relays, hosted by Hillsdale College, beginning Thursday and the two-day Ashland Alumni Open beginning Friday.
