Eagles win four titles at GLVC Indoor Championships


CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind.óThe University of Southern Indiana menís and womenís track and field teams won four titles at the GLVC Indoor Championships Saturday at the Knowling Fieldhouse at Wabash College. The four titles helped the Screaming Eagles place fourth in the womenís team competition and fifth in the menís team competition.

USI took home championships in the menís and womenís distance medley relay (DMR) events, the womenís mile, and the womenís long jump.

Junior All-American Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) and sophomore All-American Candace Perry (Anderson, Indiana) both set conference meet records in their respective events. Cooksey finished first in the mile with a time of four minutes, 54.96 seconds, while Perry finished first in the long jump with a mark of 19 feet, 6.25 inches. Both will compete at the NCAA II Indoor Championships in Boston, Massachusetts, March 11-12.

Cooksey also ran the mile leg on the womenís DMR, which finished first with a conference meet record time of 11 minutes, 54.25 seconds. The Eaglesí time, which was more than a minute faster than the second-place team, ensures them a spot at the NCAA II Indoor Championships as it ranks third in the country.

The womenís DMR team also consists of senior Crystal Stock (Mt. Vernon, Indiana) as well as sophomores Missy Burgin (Sellersburg, Indiana) and Natalie Clark (Newburgh, Indiana). All four members of the DMR earned All-GLVC honors with their finish.

Individual All-GLVC honors for the womenís team went to Cooksey (Mile), Perry (Long Jump), Stock (3,000 meters), and senior Casey Schneider (New Salisbury, Indiana). Schneider finished second in the 5,000 meters, while Stock was second in the 3,000 meters to earn All-Conference honors.

The menís DMR, which consisted of senior Doug Schwartz (Centralia, Illinois) as well as juniors Tim Bill (Lawrenceburg, Indiana), Jesse Davis (Bloomington, Indiana), and Jake England (Valparaiso, Indiana), also set a meet record time with its first-place finish. All four competitors earned All-GLVC honors as they finished with a time of 10 minutes, 24.94 seconds, nearly 16 seconds ahead of the second-place team.

Individual All-GLVC honors for the menís team went to Davis and freshman Scott Forbey (Washington, Indiana). Davis was second in the 800 meters with a time of one minute, 55.93 seconds, while Forbey was second in the high jump with a school-record leap of six feet, 4.75 inches.

USI will wait to see which competitors make the final cut for nationals later this week. While Cooksey, Perry, and the womenís DMR team are locks for nationals, the menís DMR team is on the bubble.
