NCCAA Indoor National Championships

Cedarville, OH - The women's team had several personal records at the NCCAA national championship meet. Junior Sam Cortese finished 6th in women's shot put throwing 39-07.25 feet.  Freshman, Tanisha Summerour, had the best performance throwing for three personal records in the shot put finishing with 37-08.00. Coming into the meet she was ranked 22nd out of 24 participants. Tanisha proved that she was better than what they previously ranked her by finishing 8th overall. Great performance!  Afterwards, Tanisha had this to say, "It's so nice to have the time with teammates, and also to know that God has something great in mind, even when I didn't expect that myself!"

In the women's 5000 meter run, Junior's Lindsey Toole and Socorro Ruiz worked together to finish with a time of 19:59 and 20:00.  "I was very proud of Coco and the work she's put in this season.  She battled through the flu only a couple of weeks ago, and to come out and run her best indoor 5k ever is super encouraging!" Praised Coach Hall.

Jazmin Konnick ran a huge indoor personal record in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:21 finishing 7th overall. Gabby Hill also finished the 800 meter run, in a time of 2:27, only a second off of her indoor best this season.  Hill finished 14th overall.

Ruiz, Hill, Toole, and Konnick came together in the 4x400 meter relay to finish out the meet and ran a season's best time, 4:28.99.

"I'm very proud of the women and the way they worked in our relatively short indoor season to get where we are now.  I think we're in for a very bright and successful outdoor season as we continue to put in the work to get better and seek to point to Christ in all we do," said Coach Hall.

The Lady Lions will be back in action for the outdoor season, beginning March 20th at Emory University.
