2012-13 Omaha Track and Field – Event #3 Recap – Prairie Wolf Indoor Invitational

Results

Omaha had a great afternoon in Lincoln as they won five events and saw school records fall in two events. The first school record to fall was Amanda Vorthmann’s school record time in the 5000m. Vorthmann had just set the record back in late 2012 at the Cyclone Holiday Preview. She ran a 17:38.19 to break her old time of 17:39.73. The other school record to fall was in the long jump. Sami Spenner had come close to the record already this year and I’d speculated last weekend that she had a really good chance to break it this spring. Well it didn’t take long as Spenner jumped 6.16m to break the old record of 6.11m. Spenner had already gone 6.08m this spring but now holds the record after breaking Foluso Makinde’s old record. Makinde set that record in 2005.

Here’s how the Mavericks did in each event. In the top row you’ll see the three top scores at this meet.
