Jacks at Mankato

Along with competing at Iowa State, the Jacks also sent many athletes to Mankato State for the MSU Open.  Jared Ailts placed second in the Men's Mile to All-American Travis Beniak of Augustana.  Also in the Mile, Andrew Thies cut more time off his season best for a time of 4:32.  Freshmen Leah Bolon ran well in the Women's Mile with a season best of 5:29.  In the 60m Hurdles, Mike Bredeson tied a personal best with a 8.82 second run.  In the Women's 600, Erica Meyer and Bobbie McLaury competed well.  It was Bobbie's first race as a Jack.  In the Men's 600, Luke Leischner ran unattached and won with ease in a time of 1:23.  Laura Bauer, Katie Boote, and Bobbie Sedlmajer all tackled the 25 lap tango that is the 5k.

On the field event side, Jared Vlastuin was again the big point scorer.  He broke his own Long Jump record again with a jump of 7.54m or 24 feet 9 inches.  He was also the champion in the high jump.  Calvin Cammack brought another title to SDSU in the Pole Vault.  Jake Sanderson recorded a 4th place finish in the Triple Jump with nearly 43 feet.
