Quick Hits

The track & field team concluded its indoor season by sending three athletes to the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships on March 9 and 11. Jasmine Williams (8th, weight throw) and Kameron Burmeister (11th, 5,000-meter run) captured All-American accolades.

The women's golf team began its spring season by competing against Division I teams at the Jackrabbit Invitational on March 10-11. Caro Els tied for 16th while Haley Hewer finished one stroke behind, taking 18th.

The lacrosse team took its first road trip in program history to face Georgian Court (N.J.) on March 17 and Shepherd (W. Va.) on March 19. The Wildcats dropped the games by 15-1 and 16-9 margins respectively.

On March 19, Graison Ringlever became the second Wildcat to score six goals in a single contest, joining Jordan Hanner, who did so on March 7 against Concordia-St. Paul. Brianna Bangle also made a career-best 14 saves.

Three Wildcats have now reached the double digits in points: Shelby Klotz (13g-1a), Blair Osgood (9g-4a) and Ringlever (10g-1a). With nine goals, tied for third on the team, Hanner needs one point to reach this plateau.
