Burmeister Competes on Final Day of NCAA II Outdoor Championships

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Northern Michigan University Women's Track & Field saw their season come to a close Saturday evening with senior Kameron Burmeister (Menominee, Michigan) being the lone Wildcats to compete in the final day of the NCAA Division II Outdoor Championships at the Irwin Belk Complex in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Burmeister began the 5,000-meter run near the back of the pack before making a steady climb the rest of the way. Reaching as high as 14th with 400-meters remaining, Burmeister finished in 15th-place with a time of 17 minutes, 17.28 seconds.

Burmeister's NMU career comes to a close after five All-America nods, including a pair during cross country season, two during the indoor campaign, and one during the outdoor season. Her only outdoor accolade came on Friday with a ninth-place finish in the 10,000-meter run. Burmeister also sits atop the NMU record book in five different categories between cross country and track & field.

Two more Wildcats also competed at the national meet on Thursday and Friday. Senior Vivian Hett (Burnsville, Minnesota) was the first Wildcat to compete at the national meet when she took the field in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Hett finished 20th overall with a time of 11:02.29. Senior Ine Mylle (Zonnebeke, Belgium) competed in the triple jump, finishing 14th after clearing 30 feet, 0.50 inches.

The year comes to a close for the Wildcats with the team receiving three All-America honors between the indoor and outdoor campaign. Additionally, NMU earned 26 combined All-GLIAC honors during 2017-18, 13 during each season.
