Wilmes, Brown Set School Records at Bearcat Open

Maryville, Missouri -- School records by Halley Wilmes and Kylar Brown highlighted Indian Hills' performances in the women's portion of the Bearcat Open, hosted by Northwest Missouri State University at the Hughes Fieldhouse.

Wilmes turned in a time of 3:07.85 in the 1000 meters to set a school mark and place second in the event.  This was the sophomore's second time ever running the 1000 and it also qualified her for the national meet.  

Brown leaped 34'3.5" in the triple jump, which is also a school record.  

The Warriors had seven top-five all-time marks in the meet.

Brown ran the second-fastest 400 meters in program history, 59.53, and finished 16th overall.  Melanie Hall's time of 1:00.22 was the third-best for IHCC track and field.  Lightsey ran 1:01.60 and Abby Ellison 1:06.10.

Destiny Lottie and I'Reoina Lightsey both turned in their best time of the season in the 200 meters -- Lottie ran 26.11 and Lightsey 26.35.  Those were the 3rd and 5th fastest times ever in that event.  Hall clocked a 26.65 and Dasauna Combs a 26.67.

Lottie and Combs both ran 7.99 in the 60 meters, their personal bests, and were 8th and 10th, respectively.

Ceyda Nazli improved her 600 yard time, running 1:33.80.  Shiggo Shadin finished in 1:41.82.

Morgan Lawson bettered her previous best time in the 3000 by over two seconds, running 12:14.48.

Haley Revell threw a season-best 37'2.5" in the shot put.

Wilmes had a time of 2:28.82 in the 800 meters, and Hall ran 8.00 and tied for 11th in the 60 meters.  

"Our women showed a lot of improvement in this meet," explained IHCC coach Brent Ewing.  "Almost everyone ran a personal best or season best.  Getting Halley qualified for the national meet was huge.  Having only raced the 1000 meters twice she has a lot of room for growth in the event, which is very promising.  This is by far the best group of women athletes we've ever had.  They have a lot of momentum going into the regional championship meet in two weeks.  I'm excited to watch them compete."
