USI women finish seventh

USI Results from final day

WALNUT, Calif.—The University of Southern Indiana women’s track and field team wrapped up its most successful trip to the NCAA Division II Outdoor Championships in school history Saturday night. The Screaming Eagles finished seventh with 30 points, both records for either the men’s or women’s track and field program.

Sophomore Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) finished second in the women’s 5,000 meters after winning a national championship in the 3,000 meters Friday night. Cooksey completed the race in 16 minutes, 51.50 seconds and earned All-America honors for the second time in as many nights and the fifth time in her two-year career at USI.

Adam State College’s Zoila Gomez won the event with a time of 16 minutes, 32.97 seconds.

Sophomore Abby Boberg (Bicknell, Indiana) also earned All-America honors Saturday night after finishing fifth in the high jump with a leap of five feet, 7 ¼ inches, her second best mark of the outdoor season. She was an indoor All-American as a freshman in 2003.

The Eagles were aided by freshman Candace Perry’s (Anderson, Indiana) second-place finish in the long jump on Thursday night, giving the Eagles three All-Americans in the same meet for the first time in USI track and field history.

In addition to Cooksey and Boberg’s finishes, junior Jesse Davis (Bloomington, Indiana) finished 12th in the finals of the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase. Davis finished the race in nine minutes, 48.43 seconds.

Senior Doug Schwartz (Centralia, Illinois) finished 14th in the men’s 5,000-meter prelims Friday night.
