METRO ROUNDUP: Weatherford, Johnson win twice for Sycamores

CARBONDALE, Ill. — Stacia Weatherford and Felisha Johnson were double winners to pace the Indiana State women to a second-place finish in the 2013 Bill Cornell Spring Classic outdoor track and field meet hosted by Southern Illinois University on Friday and Saturday.

Dustin Betz, John Mascari and Jonathan Jackson were winners on the men’s side as the Sycamore men finished third in the team standings.

What started out as a nice early-spring weekend for outdoor track and field deteriorated as Saturday progressed with rain and lightning delaying the final events and knocking out the timing system at Southern Illinois.

SIU captured the team title on the women’s side by scoring 178 points. Indiana State finished second with 167.5 and Illinois State third with 82.5. They were followed by SIU Edwardsville (74), Eastern Illinois (65), DePaul (49), Murray State (35), Wisconsin (21.5), Wisconsin-Milwaukee (19), Bradley (19), Lipscomb (18), Western Illinois (14) and Chicago State (9.5).

Illinois took the team title on the men’s side with Southern Illinois finishing second with 143 points and Indiana State third with 139. They were followed by Eastern Illinois (88), Wisconsin-Milwaukee (75), DePaul (51), Illinois State (38), SIU Edwardsville (34), Western Illinois (22), Lipscomb (6), Bradley (5) and Chicago State (2).

Weatherford dominated both women’s hurdle races as she won the 100-meter hurdles in 13.86 seconds and took the 400-meter hurdles in 59.63.

Johnson posted a win in the discus Friday with a throw of 168 feet, 9 inches and came back Saturday to win the shot put with a distance of 56-10. She also finished third in the hammer throw Saturday (187-9). Mary Theisen was second in the discus with a throw of 163-5 and third in the shot put with a heave of 50-2.

The Sycamore women also picked up a victory in the 4x400 relay as Shelby Higginbottom, Leeann Michl, Macey Black and Weatherford ran the distance in 3:51.40.

Indiana State also did well in the other field events for the women. Ioanna Kolsidou placed second in her first outdoor competition for the Sycamores by clearing 5-6 with Rachael Johnson clearing 5-21⁄4 to tie for fifth. Richelle Kimble and Nicole Hope tied for second in the pole vault as each cleared 12-61⁄4.

Kaisha Martin placed second in the long jump with a leap of 18-73⁄4. Carmelia Stewart was second in the triple jump with a career-best leap of 39-61⁄2, the sixth best in ISU history.

Martin also placed sixth in the 100 with a career-best time of 12:36, while Demetra Camble was third in the 200 in 25.11. Michl took second in the 400 with a time of 2:11.47, while Higginbottom finished fourth in 2:15.18.

Nicole Lucas finished second in the 10,000 Friday with a career-best time of 37:20.92.

The Sycamores also dominated the hurdles on the men’s side. Indiana State’s Greggmar Swift cruised to the win in the 110 hurdles with a time of 14.08. Jackson ran the eighth-fastest 400 hurdle time in school history as he won the event in a career-best 52.65.

Mascari ran the third-fastest 5,000 time in Indiana State history with a career-best 14:26.06 to win the event Saturday, with Taylor Head finishing second with a career-best 14:35.72. Betz captured the 3,000 steeplechase with a time of 9:12.40.

Shaun Smith finished second in the 100 with a time of 10.73.

The Sycamores also earned points from both relays. Keith Housley, Swift, Justin Baxtron and Smith combined for a second-place finish in the 4x100 relay (40.90), while Arqeil Shaw, Tuttle, Jackson and Ryan Dickson combined for a second-place finish in the 4x400 relay (3:19.73).

The Sycamores will be back on the road Friday and Saturday as they compete in the Auburn Tiger Track Classic at Auburn, Ala.
