TERRE HAUTE, Ind.óThe University of Southern Indiana menís and womenís track and field teams recorded 11 first-place finishes Saturday at the Rose-Hulman Engineer Quad. The Screaming Eagles would have won the team championships, but were not scored in the team competition.

Sophomore sprinter Natalie Clark (Newburgh, Indiana) and junior All-American Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) led the womenís squad with a pair of first-place finishes, while senior Doug Schwartz (Centralia, Illinois) led the menís squad with a pair of first-place finishes.

Cooksey set an NCAA II provisional qualifying time with her performance in the mile. She finished the race in four minutes, 58.93 seconds.

Sophomore long jumper Candace Perry (Anderson, Indiana) nearly set an NCAA II automatic qualifying mark with her first-place leap of 19 feet, 11 Ĺ inches. Perryís provisional mark sets an indoor school record and is the second-best mark in the country this season.

In all, the Eagles set six school records Saturday, with Clark setting marks in the womenís 200 and 400 meters and sophomore Missy Burgin (Sellersburg, Indiana) setting the school-record in the womenís 1,000 meters.
