          Both the men's and women's track and field teams posted some good individual performances this past weekend at the DePauw Invitational in Greencastle, Ind. In the team competitions, the men and women placed fifth and fourth, respectively. Eleven schools competed.

          The women had one first-place finisher: Elaine Simpson. Simpson took first place in the 5000-meter run as she completed the event in just over 17 minutes. The second place finisher in the 5000 was an astonishing 1 minute, 15 seconds behind Simpson. Her time is an NCAA provisional qualifying mark and was seven seconds away from making Simpson an automatic qualifier for nationals.

          Other women did well in the distance events. The team had three runners place in the 1500-meter run, including Britta Kumley, Cindy Spahn, and Natalia Cabrera. The women took second, third, and fourth place respectively. The women's team also had two runners besides Simpson who placed in the 5000-meter run, Andrea Fischione and Colleen Heffernan, who took fourth and sixth place in the race.

          Erin Hollinger took second place in the high jump and also set an NCAA provisional mark with a 1.65-meter jump. Amanda Kline scored 21 points for the team by herself. She took second place in both discus and shot put and took fourth place in the hammer throw. Also in the field, Allison Early took second place in hammer and freshman Emily Tran took second in the javelin.

          The men had three first-place finishers. Freshman Chris Kelly took first place in the 1500-meter run with a time just over 4 minutes. Senior Obinna Nwanna won the javelin throw with a distance of 52.13 meters and junior Jeremy Gdaniec took first in the hammer with a toss of 47.07 meters.

          Philip Yeung placed fourth in the 1500-meter. Brian Cromer finished third in the 5000-meter run. Other men who placed for the team include Matt Kamalsky, who took fourth in the javelin, and Jonathon Edmunds and Cameron Lee, who took fourth and fifth in the triple jump. The Spartans next meet is April 10, when they will compete in the Lynchburg College Invitational.
