Bloomington, Ind.- The Indiana women's track and field team dominated the final day of the Indiana Invitational at the Harry Gladstein Fieldhouse Saturday.
The women's team relied on the sprints and field events to carry them to victory.
IU sophomore Lorraine Dunlop got the Hoosiers off to a good start by winning both the 60m dash (7.59) and 200m dash (24.98). Freshman Tia Trent and junior Tarviant Campbell followed Dunlop's performance by scoring second and third in the 400m dash with times of 56.53 and 56.72, respectively, junior LaToya Turner took care of business by winning the 60m hurdles (8.53), and junior Kim Craig finished off the Hoosier barrage in the sprints by scoring first in the 800m run, finishing in 2:13.93.
The Hoosiers also took care of things in the field. Sophomore Maria Fleischmann won the triple jump by leaping 12.26m (40-2 3/4). Then IU sealed the deal by going one-two-three in the shot put, the top two being beyond the NCAA provisional qualification mark. Freshman Krista Keir won the shot with a personal best of 15.41m (50-6 3/4), sophomore Jennifer Brown followed with a season best shot of 15.32m (50-3 1/4), and freshman Heather Colyer captured third by reaching 14.61m (47-11 1/4).
