Flash Results

Record performances lifted two University of Southern Indiana track and field performers to All-America status Friday evening at the NCAA II Outdoor Championships in Edwardsville, Illinois.

Freshman Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) and senior Jenny Farmer (Princeton, Indiana) finished second and sixth, respectively, in the 3,000-meter finals to boost the USI womenís squad into fifth-place after six scored events.

Cooksey ran a school-record 9:39.16 and was less than three-tenths of a second away from winning a national championship while Farmer posted a personal-best 9:46.81 to pick up her first All-America award. It is the first time in the programís history that it has had two athletes earn All-America honors in the same season.

Both competitors will compete in the 5,000 meters Saturday. Cooksey ranks second in the event while Farmer ranks 15th. The 5,000 meters will start at 7:30 p.m.

Also competing on Saturday is freshman Abby Boberg (Bicknell, Indiana) and senior Mark Thurner (Hebron, Indiana). Boberg, who earned All-America honors in the high jump during the indoor season, will compete in the high jump (5 p.m.) while Thurner will take his shot at All-America status in the menís 3,000-meter steeplechase (4 p.m.).
