METRO ROUNDUP: Indiana State throwers enjoy huge day at IU

BLOOMINGTON — Felisha Johnson and Brandon Pounds led the Sycamore contingent at the Indiana Relays Saturday with Johnson winning the women’s invitational weight throw and setting a new school record in winning the invitational shot put while Pounds the top collegian in the men’s invitational weight throw.

Johnson, the nation’s leader in the weight throw, dominated the event with a winning distance of 70-feet-10-inches, which was four feet better than Purdue’s Dani Bunch. The Sycamore followed that effort with a school record toss of 58-4 3/4 to win the invitational shot put.

Pounds equaled the nation’s best throw in the men’s weight throw with a distance of 68-0.5 in finishing third overall and top collegian in the invitational weight throw.

Greggmar Swift dominated the 60-meter hurdles as he raced to victory with a time of 7.78 seconds in the finals. Swift had the top time after the semifinals earlier in the day at 7.84.

Indiana State will be in South Bend next weekend for the Meyo Invitational.

Track and field

• Rose-Hulman men take second — The Monmouth University women’s squad earned a nine-point win over Bellarmine, and the Wabash men topped Rose-Hulman by 1.5 points at the 10th Engineer Track and Field Invitational at the Sports and Recreation Center on Saturday.

Rose-Hulman claimed six first-place efforts, including two school record performances on the afternoon. Senior Liz Evans provided the day’s top performance by tying the fieldhouse record by clearing 5-10 in the high jump. The mark ranks No. 1 nationally in NCAA Division III and in the top 20 nationally in all three NCAA Divisions.

Senior Creasy Clauser added a school record performance of 59.80 seconds in the women’s 400. Senior Greg Larmore contributed the day’s second school record with a men’s weight throw toss of 54-10 3/4.

Rose-Hulman returns to action at Ohio Northern University next weekend.


• Engineers’ men sweep — At Franklin, Rose-Hulman swept top honors in every event in the men’s competition, and the women dropped a narrow one point decision to Transylvania at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Swimming and Diving Invitational.

The Engineers captured first place honors in all 16 events in the four-team meet that featured Transylvania, Franklin and Defiance. On the women’s side, Transylvania topped the Engineers by the narrowest of margins by a 189-188 count.

Freshman Tai Enrico led the Engineers with three individual first-place finishes. Enrico brought home top honors in the 100-backstroke (56.98), the 200-backstroke (2:01.52) and the 200-individual medley (2:03.74).

Freshman Stephanie Wolfersberger led the women’s effort with sweeps of the 50-freestyle (26.01) and the 100-freestyle (58.38).  The women’s effort also included a win by the 400 freestyle relay team. The Engineers also swept both men’s relay events.  The 200-medley team included Huster, Martin, Podgorski and freshman Paul Hintz with a time of 1:37.80.  The same four swimmers combined to win the 400-freestyle relay in 3:15.48.

Rose-Hulman hosts DePauw University in the Senior Day meet next Saturday at the Sports and Recreation Center.
