Three School Records Fall as Bucs Have Productive Final Tune-Up for MWC's

February 18, 2017

Oshkosh, WI -- The Beloit College Indoor Track & Field team broke three school records and had several other near misses at the UW-Oshkosh Titan Challenge, the final tune-up before next week's Midwest Conference Indoor Championships.

The Women's team finished sixth and the Men seventh.

Aleeshah Heinzen broke the Indoor Long Jump and Triple Jump records in winning the Long Jump and finishing third in the Triple.  She actually broke the Long Jump mark on her first effort and then broke her own record in each of her next two jumps, finishing with a record of 17'8 1/4.  The new Triple Jump mark is now 35'8.  Both records were previously held by Stephanie Hansen, who set the Long Jump mark in 1991 and the Triple Jump record in 1990.

Jason Dormon broke the 60m record with a 7.274 in the prelims.  He broke his own record of 7.35 he set last season.

Ellie Waddle finished second in the 800m, coming with 12/100 of a tying Laura Carpenter's 2001 record.  Jose Gutierrez finished fourth in the 60m Hurdles, running an 8.51 in the prelims, just 2/100 away from tying his own record.

Also earning points for the Bucs were the Women's 4x400m Relay, which finished fifth; Jack Klobucar, sixth in the 800m; Dewight Walker, seventh in the Triple Jump; and the Men's 4x400m Relay, which finished sixth.

The Buccaneers head to Illinois College in Jacksonville, Illinois, next weekend for the MWC Indoor Championships.  Action begins at 1:00 p.m. on Friday and continues at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday.
