2012-13 Omaha Track and Field – Event #9 Preview – Summit League Indoor Championships

Filed under: Omaha Mavericks,Previews,Track and Field — Jon Green @ 2:12 pm

The Summit League Championship has already began with the Pentathlon starting this morning. Sami Spenner is going to win that, you can put it in the bank.

What else might Omaha win? Here’s all their top 5 in the Summit League performances from this year…
60m – Maja Mihalinec has top time of 7.52… better than Deborah John of North Dakota State who has a 7.65 in 2nd.
200m – Maja Mihalinec is 2nd in this one with a 24.45. Antoinette Goodman of North Dakota State has run a 24.21.
800m – Katarina Zarudnaya’s 2:12.23 is 3rd. Paige Stratioti of North Dakota State has the top time of 2:09.26.
Mile – Amanda Vorthmann ran a 4:56.57, 4th best behind Tera Potts who ran a 4:55.02 for South Dakota State.
3000m – Amanda Vorthmann’s 9:47.90 is 4th again behind Heidi Peterson of North Dakota State who has a 9:45.27.
5000m – Vorthmann once again near the top. Her 17:22.68 is 3rd best this season with Brittni Hutton of Oakland having run a 16:45.31.
60m Hurdles – Sami Spenner has a 8.66 this year, 3rd behind Deborah John of North Dakota State who has a 8.42.
4x400m Relay – Omaha’s team has been 4th with a 3:52.42, North Dakota State the best at 3:45.74.
Distance Medley – Omaha is again 4th, this time in 13:03.80. UMKC the top team with a 12:16.65.
High Jump – Sami Spenner’s 1.72m is only 3rd with Kathie-Lee Laidley’s 1.70m in 4th. Megan Glisar of South Dakota has cleared 1.79m.
Long Jump – Omaha should see success here. Sami Spenner leads at 6.23m with 2nd place all the way back at 5.88m. Kathie-Lee Laidley is 3rd with 5.84m and Denneil Shaw is 5th with 5.78m.
Triple Jump – Sami Spenner is first here as well with a 12.99m. Second place is all the way back at 12.27m while Denneil Shaw is 5th with a 11.68m.
Pentathlon – Sami Spenner put up a 4126 earlier this year, 2nd place is only 3371.

I predict Sami Spenner wins three events and Omaha wins five in total.
