With one meet left in the season, the Warriors competed at Mankato last weekend on Feb. 10-11.  

“This is a great group of young ladies to coach,” Head Coach Mason Rebarchek said. “The attitude and the effort they show every day is the kind of stuff you need to be successful.”

Rebarchek has been a head coach here since Fall of 2004, overseeing 62 individual and 12 relay conference champions at Winona State as well as a handful of Winona State record holders that he has coached. 

The last regular season meet at Mankato brought a series of impressive results under Rebarchek, putting the team in a powerful position for the outdoor season. 

Kaylee Beyer, a fourth-year distance runner, came in first in the 800m to reset the school record that she had previously set with a time of 2:12.75. 

Beyer was also in the Distance Medley Relay on Friday.  

Beyer also runs Cross Country and has a distinguished record here, including USTFCAA All-American and All-Academic and NSIC All-Academic in 2022. She’s placed first seven times and second four times in Track and Field while holding multiple school records. 

Along with the 800m, Beyer also holds first in the indoor 1000m, second in the indoor one mile, and fifth in the distance medley relay.  

However, Beyer was not the only one who walked away with a new school record.  

Beyer’s Cross Country teammate Lindsay Cunningham beat her own school record in the 3000m with a time of 9:16.53, a time that holds the top of the NCAA Division II ranks.  

The Warriors also swept the top three in the one mile, led by Rachel Hoffman and followed by Kylie Anderson and Madeline Palmer.  

Finally for the Cross Country girls that also do Track, Mckenna Taylor took third in the 5000m to hit the fourth fastest in the Winona State record book. 

“The support of the team is huge during track after toeing the line together in cross to toeing the line alone,” Taylor said. “Our team camaraderie continues just like cross season, but we get to cheer for each other through our races each lap unlike when we all race together.” 

The 4×400, consisting of Regan Feit, Alyssa Larson, Brooklyn Schyvinck and Shereen Vallabouy took first on Saturday for a facility record and the second fastest 4×400 in Warrior history. 

Schyvinck was two legs of the 4×400 that currently holds the record and also earned third in the 200m on Friday.  

Lastly, first-year Mari Mohling was the highest-finishing field event Warrior with fifteenth in the high jump. 

Overall, the team finished second before their last meet of the regular season on Feb. 17 at University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. After that, the NSIC Indoor Championships are Feb. 24-25 at Mankato, where the Warriors are all too familiar with and will hopefully excel.
