Women’s Track and Field Claim Championship
A belated congratulations to the Women’s Track and Field team, who won their second-ever Big Ten Indoor championship over the weekend.
Trailing in the team standings for much of the afternoon, the Lions screamed into first place with two events remaining, thanks to a 25-point haul in the 200-meters led by a victory from [Junior Shavon] Greaves. Claiming her second-career Big Ten Indoor title in the event, Greaves blitzed to a facility- and meet-record, and NCAA-automatic qualifying 22.98.
The fact that the team found itself in sixth place after the first day of competition made their eventual victory even more thrilling. Women’s track and field will have a chance to go to the NCAA Championships this Friday and Saturday during “Last Chance Weekend.” We wish them the best of luck.
