Riley Petsch also finished seventh in the five thousand meter with a time of 20:47.26, which also earned her Athlete of the Week for NJCAA.  Head Coach Steve Davis talks about what Petsch means to the team.

As for the men’s track teams, they also enjoyed success that weekend, with Sie’ntez Lerma finishing in ninth place at the hundred meter and set a new personal record, and Trenton Braswell, who set personal records for both discuss and hammer throw and earned Player of the Week honors for his performance.  Davis talks more about the two athletes.

The Mineral Area College men’s and women’s track and field teams are both in the top three in the latest rankings.  Before the national meet in New York next month, Mineral Area College has one more regular season meet Saturday at Indiana State University.
