TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State set four facility records on a Friday night when its men and women came together for a victory to take home the Coughlan-Malloy Cup by a score of 181.5-88.5 over Illinois State in the Terre Haute Double Dual track and field meet inside Rose-Hulman’s Sports and Recreation Center.

For the Sycamores, this was their eighth straight Coughlan-Malloy Cup and ninth of the last 10 in the series.

“I think we had a great day today,” ISU men’s coach John McNichols said. “It was nice to get back into competition after our vacation and the last couple weeks of training.”

Senior Mary Theisen had a double victory in the women’s shot put and weight throw to contribute to the ISU victory.

The Sycamore women beat the Redbirds 88.5-56.5 to earn their second victory over their MVC rivals this season.

“It was a stressful meet at points, but I think we ended up on a great note,” ISU women’s coach Angela Martin said. “We had some great personal bests by the team and had some great fighting efforts.”

The ISU men beat Illinois State 93-52, thanks to 11 individual victories by the Sycamores.

Freshman David Timlin started a string of victories on the track as he had a great finishing kick to win the mile in 4:15.50. The hurdlers kept the rally going as they swpt the first four spots led by Swift. Seniors Max Tuttle and Kevin Piraino finished one-two in the 400 in 49.36 and 50.04 in another dominant effort.

The momentum never slowed down from there as the Sycamores went one-two-three in the 60, led by senior Keith Housley in 6.93. Housley teamed up with junior Arqeil Shaw to go one-two in the 200 with Shaw winning in 23.43, Housley went 22.44. Mascari dominated the 3,000 and the 4 x 400 relay team brought it home with the final victory being won in 3:18.77.

The Sycamores will head to Madison, Wis., for the Badger Invitational next weekend.

In the Division III portion of the meet Friday, Rose-Hulman won 13 men’s and five women’s events to defeat Manchester.

The Engineers defeated Manchester 102-31 on the men’s side, while the visiting Spartans topped Rose-Hulman 69-44 on the women’s side.
