ISU track to begin outdoor season in big meet at SIU

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State will begin its 2013 outdoor track and field season this weekend as it participates in the Bill Cornell Spring Classic hosted by Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Ill.

“This is a scored meet and they are hard to find now, unfortunately,” ISU men’s coach John McNichols said. “That is a direction that outdoor and indoor track has gone right now but we do need more scored meets. We have looked all over for scored meets, but they are just hard to find.

“This one at Southern Illinois is their opening meet on their new facility and we are proud to go down there and be a part of it. It will be a scored meet with 11 men’s teams and 12 women’s team with championship scoring, pretty much like a conference meet.”

Competition at the Lew Hartzog Track & Field Complex will begin at 4 p.m. today with the discus throw and the long jump. The only other event scheduled for the opening day will be the 10,000 meters at 7 p.m.

“This will be a good opening meet for us,” ISU women’s coach Angela Martin said. “We will go against some quality programs including several from the conference. The ladies are really excited to begin the outdoor season and I think we will do well.”

Part of that optimism is the return of two ISU seniors for their final outdoor season. Nicole Hope returns in the pole vault after missing the 2012 outdoor campaign with an injury. She did compete unattached in several meets during the past indoor season and is ready for the outdoor campaign. Also returning is thrower Mary Theisen, who missed the indoor season with an illness.

“Mary’s return makes our throwing group even more formidable,” Martin said. “Her ability and leadership is a valuable asset that will help not only our veterans but also our freshmen.”

The Sycamores have had a slight delay in the start of their outdoor season because of track construction. Work at Eastern Illinois forced the cancellation of the annual “Ice Dual” between Indiana State and Eastern Illinois along with the EIU Panthers Big Blue Classic.

The Sycamores have two regional qualifiers returning to run in the 400 hurdles (Jonathan Jackson and Max Tuttle) along with the indoor 400 champion (Arqeil Shaw) who also is a hurdler. Dustin Betz was a regional qualifier a year ago in the 3,000 steeplechase.

Others to watch this season on the men’s side are John Mascari in the distance, Justin Baxtron and Shaun Smith in the sprints, Brandon Pounds, Chris Fields and Derek Bunch in the throws and Robert Webb in the jumps and decathlon.

• Moore honored again — Indiana State senior Devin Moore swept the most recent weekly awards from the Missouri Valley Conference, being named the league’s Pitcher of the Week on Monday and the Scholar-Athlete of the Week later in the week.

Moore’s selection marks the second straight week that a Sycamore has been named the MVC Scholar-Athlete of the Week as sophomore Landon Curry earned the honor after ISU’s series win at Minnesota.

• Sullivan 11, North Knox 6 — At Sullivan, North Knox rallied for five runs in the fifth and sixth innings to get past Sullivan in a nonconference high school game.
