CARTERSVILLE, Ga. – The Berry College track & field teams competed at the Dunamis/Lakepoint Indoor meet on Thursday afternoon, continuing to build experience across the board.
The meet has gained a significant amount of popularity, hosting some of the best competition from across the country. Despite delays due to unfinished construction of the indoor track & field facility, the Vikings still managed to pull out some solid times and standards.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
- Alainna Chretien and Tori Johnson took 3rd and 5th in the 800m, respectively
- Alyssa Fowler ran a solid 5K, placing 3rd.
- Genesis Leggett took 3rd in the shotput and 1st place the weight throw
- The pole vaulters performed well for men and women, with Tucker Smith tying for first place and Elizabeth Laselva taking third.
WHAT THEY SAID:
“We came out and competed pretty flat today. I felt like the challenges of the day and the frustrations that came with those challenges got in the way of us competing to our potential. We let things that were not in our control dictate our attitudes about the meet and our performances. While there were a few bright spots, I’m glad we can use this as a learning experience and have a do-over in Birmingham at the DIII Challenge on Monday.”
– Head Coach Luke Syverson
The Vikings will compete at the Birmingham Crossplex on February 12th.
