A week after winning four events at Northwest Missouri State, the UNO women's track team followed it up with two wins and more success at the 2012 KT Woodman Classic at Wichita State. Sophomore Kathie-Lee Laidley won the long jump with a wind-aided mark of 19-09.
The UNO women's track and field team will head to Wichita this weekend off a very successful performance in Cedar Falls, Iowa. At the Jack Jennett Invite at the University of Northern Iowa, the Mavs earned two first-place finishes among several personal bests on the weekend.
Sami Spenner of the UNO women's track team was named the Summit League Woman
Athlete of the week last week for the third time in a row. It's also the fourth time Spenner has received the award this year.
It's a surprising feat, until one learns she almost qualified for the U.S. Olympic trials last summer and is one of the best athletes in all of Division I Track.
Spenner's continued success this season, after what she accomplished last year, has proven
to many just how exceptional of an athlete she truly is.
The UNO women's track field team concluded their indoor season Friday at the Nebraska Tune-Up in Lincoln at the Devaney Center. Just like the last few weeks, records were broken and personal bests were beaten as the Mavs get ready for the outdoor season.
The UNO track and field team traveled to Wichita State last weekend, competing in the Varsity Apartments Invitational. By the end of the meet, one of the Mavs' best athletes earned an event win and established a new meet record.
