School Records Fall as IHCC Women Compete at National Meet

Lynchburg, Virginia -- Indian Hills had entries in three events at the NJCAA Women's National Indoor Track and Field Championships at the Liberty (University) Indoor Track Complex and school records were broken in all three events.

Halley Wilmes finished 10th in the 1000 meter run in 3:05.02.  That broke Wilmes's previous IHCC record by over two seconds.

Kylar Brown competed in the triple jump and placed 10th with a jump of 10.88 meters.  Her previous best had been 10.73.

The women's 4x400 meter relay unit of Melanie Hall, I'Reoina Lightsey, Destiny Lottie and Brown clocked a 4:00.66 to come in 12th.

"Our women did really well," said IHCC head coach Brent Ewing.  "We were hoping to come away with an All-American but fell just short.  Wilmes and Brown improved on their rank coming into the meet.  Melanie Hall had a solid opening leg for the 4x4 relay.  Destiny Lottie did a great job of filling in for Jocelynn Crowell in that event.  She really stepped up and surprised the coaching staff.  I'm really looking forward to watching these ladies continue to develop in the outdoor season, which starts Mar. 20 at Emporia State in Kansas."
