SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – The Carleton College women’s track and field team sent a contingent to compete at the Johnny Mathis Invitational hosted by San Francisco State University. In their first outdoor meet of the year, the Knights held their own at a meet that included four Division I programs and a handful of D-II squads. The Knights top results came in the 800-meter run and 400-meter hurdles with a trio of top-10 finishes in both events.
In the 800-meter race, Haley Johnson (Sr./Golden Valley, Minn./Robbinsdale Cooper), Colette Celichowski (So./Shorewood, Minn./Minnetonka), and Ruth Steinke (Fy./Lima, N.Y./Honeoye Falls-Lima) all finished in the top 10. Johnson established a personal-best with her time of 2:19.66, which ranked fifth out of 25 runners. Steinke posted a time of 2:21.65, edging Celichowski at the line by 0.08 second to take eighth place.
During the long hurdle race, rookies Emma Russ (Inver Grove, Minn./Simley), Amelia Campbell (Sturgeon Bay, Wis./Sturgeon Bay), and Anna Cich (Minnetonka, Minn./Hopkins) placed sixth, eighth, and ninth respectively. Their times ranged between 1:08.26 and 1:10.94, which would have been fast enough to qualify for last year’s MIAC Championships.
Avery Johnson (So./Portland, Ore./Oregon Episcopal), who ranked fourth in the MIAC for the javelin last season, established a personal record with a toss of 36.66 to place fourth at Saturday’s meet.
