NEW ORLEANS, La. -- Six student-athletes from Northern Michigan University Track & Field have earned 2019 NCAA DII Outdoor Track & Field United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Midwest Region status.
Sophomore Izabelle Peterson (Marquette, Mich.) earned the honor for both the 100 and 200 Meter Dash. She won the 200 at the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Outdoor Championships and earned First Team All-GLIAC. Her season best time of 24.13 broke an NMU school record and helped her to a victory at the Al Owens Classic.
Senior Shayla Huebner (Marquette, Mich.) earned the distinction in both the 400-Meter Run and the 800-Meter Run. In the 800, the senior has an outdoor season best of 2:08.97 to finish second at the GLIAC Championships and break a school record on her way to earning Second Team All-GLIAC. She posted a school record of 55.79 last week at the Dr. Keeler Invitational hosted by North Central College.
Senior Michelle Juergen (Gau-Odernheim, Germany) will appear in the High Jump again after participating in the same event at the indoor championships. For the second time this season, she was named GLIAC Field Athlete of the Meet at the GLIAC Championships and enters with a season best height of 5'7.75 that she cleared at the 2019 Golden Grizzlies Invitational.
The 4x400 Meter Relay team of junior Sydney McPeters (Sugarland, Texas), senior Paige Dutcher (Williamston, Mich.), junior Paige Du Bois (Green Bay, Wis.) and Huebner also earned All-Region honors. Most recently the team set a school record at the Dr. Keeler Invitational, winning the race in 3:46.86. At the GLIACs, the team was Second Team All-GLIAC and finished second.
This is Juergens second All-Region accolade as she earned the honor her freshman season. It is the first All-Region acknowledgement for Peterson, Huebner, McPeters, Dutcher and Du Bois. The top five individuals in each event and top three relays from each region earn All-Region status.
