Metro roundup: Reed connects for 15th home run on four-hit day




Sycamores fare well — At Columbus, Ohio, Indiana State sophomore Katie Wise and senior Mary Theisen won their events, as the Sycamores wrapped up Day 2 competition in the Jesse Owens Track Classic at Ohio State University.

“We had several good performances today,” said ISU women’s coach Angela Martin. “Mary and Katie got big wins and continue to be consistent with their performances. We had great performances across the board for our team and now we’ll gear up for the Drake Relays next weekend.”

Wise kept her perfect outdoor season alive in the 100-meter dash as she sprinted home for a big win in 11.52 seconds. She also ran a key leg of the 4 x 100-meter relay squad that placed second overall in a time of 46.20. Demetra Camble, Alethia Marrero and Chidera Obasih joined her on the relay team. Camble placed 11th in the 100 in 11.95. Marrero went on to place second in the 400 hurdles in a time of 59.93.

Theisen kept up an outstanding season in the shot put, winning with a toss of 53 feet, 3 inches. Theisen came back in the hammer throw to place fifth with a throw of 187-9. Senior Chris Fields placed 11th in a very competitive field in the hammer throw with a throw of 196-0. He also placed 11th in the shot put with a toss of 55-10 1/4.

Junior Byron Ferrell cleared 16-6 3/4 to place third in the pole vault. Freshman Devyn Mikell had a big jump of 23 feet 00.50 inches to place fourth in the long jump. Senior Lauren Rice had a huge personal best in the pole vault to place fourth as she cleared 12-7 1/2.

“Byron had a good clearance with the winds blowing him around,” ISU men’s coach John McNichols said. “Devyn also had a good day, as he is nearing closer to the jumps he had indoor.”

Junior Carmelia Stewart ran a 13.71 in the 100 hurdles to place fourth overall.

 Sophomore Adarius Washington led the Sycamores hurdlers, as he placed third overall in a time of 14.16. Senior Max Tuttle placed ninth overall in a time of 14.66 before running 52.38 to place fifth in the 400 hurdles. Juniors Arqeil Shaw and Ray Skamay placed 13th (54.52) and 14th (54.57) respectively.

“Adarius ran a great lifetime best,” commented McNichols. “Tuttle was working on a new step pattern and the winds made that a little difficult, but he handled well to ran a great time.”

Kevin Piraino led the team in the 400, placing fourth in 48.50. Freshman David Timlin placed second in the 800 in a time of 1:51.15 out of the slow heat.

“Timlin ran a very competitive time,” McNichols said. “That ranks among our best in school history and will put him near the top of the conference.”

Freshman LeVisa Evans and sophomore Ioanna Koltsidou each cleared 5-5 to place sixth and eighth respectively.

The men’s 4 x 400 relay team of Shaw, Piraino, Timlin and Tuttle combined to run 3:13.87 and place fifth overall.

“We used this weekend to finalize our Drake Relays roster [for next weekend],” said McNichols. “The athletes that won’t compete at Drake next weekend will go to Eastern Illinois on Tuesday to compete.”
