Muskies finish eighth at NAC indoor championships
Athletics - posted on 2/26/2011
The Lakeland College track and field team competed in the Northern Athletics Conference indoor championships on Saturday.
While the team earned only three points, all on the men's side, there were a few individuals who performed well.
Junior Joey Salazar (Beaver Dam, Wis.) scored the team's only three team points with his sixth place finish in the 55 meter dash. Freshman distance runner Joseph Sapp (Bloomingdale, Mich.) finished 16th in the 5000 meter run.
In the field events for the men, freshman Jon Vercauteren (Baileys Harbor, Wis.) placed 15th in the 16-pound shot put.
On the women's side, Lakeland had one competitor, sophomore Christine Deitte, who placed 23rd in the 3000 meters and 11th in the 5000 meters.
"Everyone's times have improved from our meet two weeks ago," said Lakeland head coach Pete Hahm. "Joey Salazar had been hurt and this was his first competition of the season and he was able to run well and get us some team points. He has vastly improved from last season; he's been working hard and he's done some good things. Hopefully he'll continue his success in outdoor. Joseph Sapp did a good job this weekend. We hope to see more improvement from him in outdoor season."
