Three School Records Fall at UW-Stevens Point

746-Coleman1STEVENS POINT, WIS. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology track and field athletes earned three event victories and set two school records with strong performances at the Wisconsin-Stevens Point last chance meet on Saturday.

Junior Jeremiah Edwards (Indianapolis/Lawrence North) smashed his own school record in the 55-meter dash by nearly one-tenth of a second with a time of 6.39 seconds.  Edwards time stands fifth nationally during the NCAA Division III indoor season.

Junior Sutton Coleman (Lebanon, Va.) dropped nearly one-tenth of a second off his own school record in the 55-meter high hurdles with a time of 7.59 seconds.  Coleman also ranks in the top 10 nationally this season.

Sophomore Liz Evans (Bicknell/North Knox) won the high jump with her third NCAA Division III automatic qualification of the season by clearing 5' 7 1/4".  Evans continues to lead the nation in the high jump entering next weekend's championships.

Evans has guaranteed a qualification spot in the women's high jump for next weekend's NCAA Division III Championships at Capital University in Ohio.  Coleman and Edwards are virtually assured spots with today's performances, and senior Derek Bischak (Angola) will hope to earn a spot in either the 800-meters or the mile run when the field is released on Monday.
