TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
recorded three Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Track and
Field Athlete of the Week award winners after a strong meet at Ohio
Wesleyan University last weekend.
Sutton Coleman (Lebanon, Va.) claimed HCAC
Track Athlete of the Week accolades. Coleman led the
Rose-Hulman performance by sweeping the 110- and 400-meter hurdle
events in a meet featuring 15 NCAA Division III programs from
Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
Coleman ran the second fastest time in school history in both
events, highlighted by a mark of 52.69 seconds in the 400 to rank
No. 3 nationally. His winning time in the 110-high hurdles
was an impressive 14.63, behind only his performance at the 2010
NCAA Division III Outdoor Nationals.
Liz Evans (Bicknell/North Knox) was named HCAC
Women's Field Athlete of the Week. Evans tied her own school
record with the nation's best high jump mark of the 2011 NCAA
Division III Indoor or Outdoor season. Evans,
the reigning Indoor national champion, cleared 5' 8 1/2"
to top her previous best season mark by more than one inch and tie
her previous school record.
In addition, Evans brought home a strong third-place effort in
the long jump with a leap 16' 8 3/4".
Sophomore Greg Larmore (Deerfield,
Ill.) recorded a fifth-place finish in the hammer throw
with a toss of 162' 2". The effort reached Rose-Hulman's
all-time top 10 in the event and marked the best throw in the HCAC
Larmore previously recorded the team's top discus mark of the
season with a 142' 3" toss at DePauw University last week.
The Engineers return to action at the Rose-Hulman Twilight
Meet on Friday at 4:30 p.m. at Cook Stadium. The meet will
include 15 institutions from five states.
