          The Spartans had several athletes both on the men's and women's teams take top 15 finishes at the 42-team Wake Forest Open in Winston-Salem, N.C. The meet included several Division I teams.

          The Spartans' best finishes came in the women's distance events. Two runners, juniors Justine Jeroski and Andrea Fischione, finished fifth and ninth, respectively, in the 5,000-meter run with times of 17 minutes, 48.90 seconds and 18 minutes, 6.46 seconds. In the 10,000-meter run, senior Colleen Heffernan finished sixth with a time of 39 minute, 19.11 seconds.

          The men's best showing in the distance events was a strong twelfth place from junior Robert Ontko, at 31 minutes, 45.03 seconds.

          The javelin throw was a big event for the Spartan women, as freshman Emily Tran flirted with the school record with a toss of 36.45 meters, good for eleventh place, and sophomore Cara Dreussi topped her personal best by over five meters with a twentieth place toss of 32.03 meters.

          Sophomore Amanda Kline built off a strong indoor season. She placed ninth in the shot put with a throw of 12.27 meters and elventh in the discus at 36.61 meters. Senior Allison Early placed 16th in the hammer throw, with a toss of 40.08 meters.

          The hammer throw was the best throw for Spartan men, as juniors Jeremy Gdaniec and Stephen Evankovich finished fourteenth and sixteenth, with throws of 41.30 meters and 40.67 meters, respectively.

          The top finish in a sprint for a Spartan was posted by sophomore Jim Mather, with a fifteenth place time of 56.06 seconds in the 400-meter hurdles. Mather was also part of a strong 4x400 meter relay, which posted a time of 3 minutes, 26.07 seconds, anchored by sophomore Ty Shaffer in a split of 48.9 seconds.

          The Spartans are in action next when they travel to the DePauw University Invitational on April 3.
