Maverick Maniac's Musings

2012-13 Omaha Track and Field – Event #8 Preview – Nebraska Tune-Up

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Previews,Track and Field — Jon Green @ 11:26 am

Omaha’s final regular season indoor meet is today as they head down to the Nebraska Tune-Up. There are live stats available here.

The Mavericks will be looking to get one last strong weekend in before heading off to the Summit League Championship in Vermillion on the 24th and 25th. I suppose we should do SCHOOL RECORD WATCH and take a look at where one might fall this weekend… we’ll focus on those who have been close so far
First of all Maja Milhalinec is the school record holder in the 60m Dash at 7.49. She’d need to shave just 0.03 seconds off her season best time to match it… so that’s a possibility every weekend.

Amanda Vorthmann is running the 1,000m this weekend. She has not run the event this year and was about seven seconds off the school record time last year, but with her setting the mile, 3000m, and 5000m over the last couple months, who are we to say she can’t set another?

Sami Spenner has set a couple records as well and her best time of 8.66 in the 60m Hurdles is only .11 seconds off the school record.

Kathie-Lee Laidley already holds the school record in the high jump and while it’s been a couple years since she set it she could still top it again. So those four are probably the most likely if UNO is going to set another record this weekend.

If anyone wants to see the schedule it is here with the heat sheets here.

Here’s who appears to be competing for UNO… we sure learned last week that just because they are listen on the heat sheets on Wednesday doesn’t mean they will compete there on Friday… but it is a good idea.
