UWEC CC/Track – Outdoor Update

It was a record breaking week for the UW-Eau Claire men’s and women’s track & field team who competed at the UW-La Crosse Last Chance meet this past Thursday. Jake Zander (sr.-Chippewa Falls McDonell) won the men’s 1500 in a school record time of 3:50.76. The previous record was held by Rich Maleniak who ran 3:51.25 in 2002. Blugold Alum Adam Condit also had a great day finishing 3rd in the men’s 5K with a PR time of 14:55. On the women’s side Maria Peloquin (sr.-Prescott) broke her existing school record in the 800 by running 2:12.84 and finishing 2nd overall. She then went on to help the women’s 4 x 400 relay team set another school record and automatically qualify for Nationals with a time of 3:50.06. The relay team consisted of Talisa Emberts (jr.-Sussex Hamilton) – 56.5 split, Erin Schoenfelder (so.-Antioch, IL) – 58.9 split, Maria Peloquin – 58.6 split and Jordanne Greenup (jr.-Fridley, MN) – 55.9 split.
