OVC Indoor Championship Recap

OVC Indoor Championship Recap

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Belmont University women's track and field team competed in the OVC Indoor Championships in Charleston, Ill. this weekend.

The Bruins had athletes compete in four events on Saturday.

The 4x400 meter relay team of sophomore Annelise Doerr (Fountain Valley, Calif.), freshman Katrina Quigley (Nashville, Tenn.), freshman Lexi Grieves (Metamora, Ill.), and sophomore LaCarol Baynes (Houston, Texas) put together a nice race with a time of 4:00.95 to give them a seventh place finish. 

Sophomore Alyssa Andersen (Oswego, Ill.) finished her weekend by competing in the shot put.  Andersen boasted a throw of 11.17 meters. 

Freshman Kortney Schardt (Lindenhurst, Ill.) notched a tenth place finish in the mile run, and junior Jessica King (Fishers, Ind.), junior Kiera Weems (Murfreesboro, Tenn.), and freshman Sierra Lax (Columbus, Ind.) competed in the 3,000 meter run.

"We knew it was going to be tough going in, but weekends like these are a big reminder of the competition level in the OVC for the women with 12 full teams.  We've got a young team and I know we'll use this as motivation to get better and more competitive," said Associate Head Coach Cameron Harvey.

The Bruins will be back in action Mar. 18 at the Yellow Jacket Invitational in Atlanta, Ga.
