RESULTS (No Team Scores)

The Loras College women's track and field team had three Duhawks post NCAA qualifying marks on Saturday at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.

Senior Mary Bridget Corken headlined a handful of standout performances by the purple and gold. Corken won the mile in 5:01.26. Corken's time was a lifetime PR and the second best time in Loras history. She will need to shave 0:00.26 off of Saturday's time to claim the Loras record over the next month leading up to nationals.

Barb Kremer also posted a provisionally qualifying time in the 55 meter hurdles. Kremer clocked a :08.46 to finish in second place and post the third fastest time in Loras history.

Danielle McNally also improved her mark in the weight throw in Platteville. The junior posted an even 52'-0", another top five Loras time, this one good for fourth on the Duhawks list.

Other top results on Saturday included runner up finishes by Hannah Weiss in the 800, Genna Kinley in the 5,000, Caitlin Groeper in the High Jump and the 4 x 200 relay.

The Duhawks will remain in Dubuque on Saturday when they compete at the University of Dubuque on the 20th.
