Austin Wallert, Sports Reporter

The Winona State women’s track team continued to dominate the competition as they finished first of 16 teams at the Mark Schuck Open and Multi in Mankato, Minn.

With 121 points over the two-day event, the Warriors outlasted the 15 other teams thanks to four first-place finishes and a record-breaking run from senior Anna Rogahn.

Rogahn bested her own 3000-meter record of 10:07.00 with a first-place finish of 10:04.04.

Sophomore Brooklyn Schyvinck was first to finish in the 400m dash with a time of 57.29 and fellow sophomore Kendall Zeman saw no one in front of her as she crossed the finish line of the 400m hurdles (1:06.14).

Junior Kristi Springer led the way for the Warriors in the field events as she leaped over the competition in the triple jump for a distance of 11.35 meters.

Other top finishes include a second-place finish from Senior Taylor Juresh as she leaped for 5.48 meters during the long jump and sophomore Madison Rizner finished fourth in the high jump reaching 1.58 meters.

Two personal records were also set last Saturday as junior Becca Richtman ran the 5000m run in 17:54.71 to finish second, and sophomore Maddy Pietz sprinted the 200m dash in 25.63 seconds.

The Warriors will be heading back to Mankato for these next few events starting with the Ted Nelson Classic on Saturday, Feb. 8.
