2012-13 Omaha Track and Field – Event #7 Recap – Iowa State Classic – Saturday

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Recaps,Track and Field — Jon Green @ 12:20 am

While Omaha only had competitors in five events on Saturday at the Iowa State Classic that didn’t hold them back as Omaha set two school records and won two events.

Sami Spenner won the long jump while jumping a school record 6.23m. That broke the previous mark of 6.16m that Spenner set earlier in the year. The other school record was set by Amanda Vorthmann. Vorthmann set a new school record in the 3,000m with a time of 9:47.90, one of three events she has the school record in along with the mile and the 5,000m. She broke her own record of 9:50.04 which she set in 2012. Vorthmann was 10th in the 3,000m at the Iowa State Classic.

Spenner matched her first place finish in the long jump with one in the triple jump where she set a personal best. She was followed in the long jump by Kathie-Lee Laidley who finished 4th with a personal best 5.84m and Denneil Shaw in 5th.

Maja Mihalinec had two great runs on Saturday as she finished 3rd in both the 60m Dash and the 200m.

Most events on Saturday were the seeded version of events that are held on both Friday and Saturday. The only events where this wasn’t the case was the finals for the 60m hurdles and 60m dash.
