Day Two Results

HILLSDALE—The Calvin men’s and women’s track and field teams came up with several sterling performances on Friday night at the Hillsdale Gina Relays. Calvin was led by its distance contingent on Friday night, particularly from its women’s team.

Senior Elizabeth Smit (Kirkland, WA) qualified automatically with a school record time of 10:29.55 in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, breaking her own school record by nearly 15 seconds. In the women’s 10,000 meters, senior Jessica Koster (Grand Rapids Christian HS) was one of four Calvin runners to post NCAA III provisional qualifying times as she placed third in a time of 35:48.14. Koster’s time was just .14 off an automatic qualifying time and will almost certainly cement her ticket to the NCAA III Outdoor Track and Field Championships in May.
