2012-13 Omaha Track and Field – Event #6 Recap – Varsity Apartments Invitational

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Recaps,Track and Field — Jon Green @ 2:27 am

Omaha was at the Varsity Apartments Invitational down in Wichita, Kansas on Friday and Saturday. The Mavericks had another successful weekend as Amanda Vorthmann headlined the weekend by setting the school record once again in the 5000m while winning the event narrowly. UNO saw Maja Mihalinec come in 2nd in the 60m dash, Katarina Zarudnaya come in 2nd in the 800m, Sami Spenner get 2nd in the high jump, an Kathie-Lee Laidley get 2nd in the long jump. Denneil Shaw finished just behind Laidley in the long jump in 3rd place to wrap up the six top-3 finishes for Omaha.

Omaha saw four season bests and 14 personal bests in addition to Vorthmann’s school record. Three Mavericks set personal bests in two separate events: Sami Spenner (60m dash and 60m hurdles), Kristin Rogers (3000m and 5000m), and Kayla Fenske (3000m and 5000,).
