MIAA MULTI-EVENTS CROWN NEW CHAMPIONS
April 30, 2007—Central Missouri’s Anne Carlson and Northwest Missouri’s
Courtland Ingram had great second days to win the MIAA Multi-Event
Championships on Monday at Emporia State.
Carlson was in second place heading into Monday’s action but used second
place finishes in the long jump and javelin throw to take the lead and
finished fourth in the 800m to hang on for the win. The top five
competitors earned provisional qualifying marks with Carlson currently
ranked fourth in the nation. Brandi Honeywell of Northwest Missouri,
the day one leader, finished second and is fifth in the nation, while
Cody Varner of Central Missouri finished third and moved up to sixth in
the nation. ESU’s Aubrey Folk and Ryan Green finished ninth and tenth
respectively.
Ingram was in fifth place by 350 points entering the second day’s
action. He began his major move with a win by nearly a foot in the pole
vault, outscoring the field by 87 points in that event. A third place
finish in the javelin pulled him within 140 points of defending champion
Cameron Babb of ESU heading into the 1500m run. Ingram broke out from
the pack along with Nat Thomas of Pittsburg State and A.J. Roth of
Central Missouri and finished in 4:40.14 while Babb came in at 5:13.27
in the 1500m. Ingram, Babb and Alan Yoder of Ft. Hays State all reached
provisional qualifying marks and are currently ranked 9th, 10th and 11th
in the nation.
In the team standings Central Missouri’s women took an early lead with
17 points followed by Northwest Missouri with 11 points, Pitt State with
six points and Ft. Hays State with five points after one event. On the
men’s side, Northwest Missouri has ten points, Pitt State has nine, ESU
is in third with eight and UCM and PSU are tied with six points apiece.
The rest of the MIAA Championships begin on Saturday, May 5 in Hays,
Kan.
