WTRCK | Crocker Cracks Top-5, Team Finishes 10th at OUA's

The Laurentian indoor track team competed at the OUA Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend, returning with five top-10 finishes, four personal best performances and one school record.

Megan Crocker cracked the top-10 in both the 1500m and the 3000m, finishing 5th in the 3000m with time of 10:02.38 and 7th in the 1500m with a time of 4:41.35. She remains in the hunt for a Nationals berth in the 3000m, with final qualifiers to be announced on Tuesday. 

She was joined in the top-10 by rookie Justin Graenert, who ran to an 8th place finish in the 600m with a personal best time of 1:21.40.  Graenert's time broke the school record of 1:21.93 that was set by Marc Poulin in 1984.

Erin Hansel also finished in the top-10 with a personal time of 2:58.70 in the 1000m. 

With the probable exception of Megan Crocker, this concludes Laurentian's track season for the year, with training for summer-track and Fall cross-country seasons to begin in two weeks.
