Geneva, Ohio – The Warriors are off to a record breaking start at the 2013 NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships, which began on Thursday at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, setting new school standards in three events.
Not only did Indiana Tech’s men’s 4x400-meter and 4x800-meter relay teams establish new school records with times of 3:12.76 and 7:41.07, but those times were also good enough to send them to the finals. Highlighting the 4x800 team was a leg by senior Brandon Reynard who ran a 1:57.6 in his first ever 800.
The 4x400 team is made up of Robert Rose, Dareyus Person, Austen Barnes, and Harris Edwards III, and joining Reynard on the 4x800 is Matt Adair, Seth Spangler, and Nick Radionoff.
Joining them in the finals will be the women’s 4x400 relay team after turning in a 3:46.56. The team is made up of Chauntiel Smith, Shayne Armbrister, Jamela Kimbrough, and Kirsten Flake.
The women’s 4x800, consisting of Jasmine Lott, Cherie Gaines, Emily Streahle, and Brenna Conger ran a 9:31.63 to break the school record, but did not make the final.
Junior Aaron Belcher just missed making the final in the 5000-meter run, but was the WHAC’s top performer in the event with a time of 15:09.26.
Action resumes Friday with the heptathlon kicking off the day at 10 a.m. EST. The finals in the racewalk and 4x800-meter relay highlight the running events in the afternoon. Six field events will take place beginning at 1 p.m.
All action can be seen live on the NAIA Network, the official video-streaming channel of the NAIA. For more information, click here.
