Nelson, Gutermuth Re-Write Record Books at Texas Relays
March 28, 2014
Nelson started the day for the Hoosiers with a strong performance in the long jump. After making the final in the event, Nelson wasted little time as she jumped 6.16m (20-2.5) on her first jump.
Nelson, who won her section of the long jump competition, set the seventh best mark in IU school history and ninth best mark in the NCAA this season.
In the night session sophomore Sophie Gutermuth finished in third-place in the pole vault with a career-best clearance of 4.30m (14-1.25). That mark is the second best in IU school history and fourth best mark in the NCAA this season.
Also competing in the pole vault, senior Kelsie Ahbe finished in fifth-place with a season best jump of 4.15m (13-7.25).
Up next the Hoosiers will split up the team next weekend. The majority of the group will travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for the Crimson Tide Invitational, with a few members making the trip to Palo Alto, Calif., for the Stanford Invitational. Both meets will take place April 4-5.
