Cooksey finishes fourth in 5,000,
Earns All-America honors for eighth time

USI Results

BOSTON, Mass.—University of Southern Indiana women’s track junior Heather Cooksey (Brownsburg, Indiana) finished fourth in the 5,000 meters at the NCAA Division II Indoor Track and Field Championships Saturday at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center.

Cooksey finished the race in 16 minutes, 39.49 seconds, less than two-tenths of a second away from her outdoor school-record time. Her time was an indoor school record. Harding University’s Janet Kogo won the race with a meet-record time of 16 minutes, 19.59 seconds.

The finish propelled Cooksey to her eighth All-America honor and is the Screaming Eagles’ school-record sixth All-America honor during the indoor season. Cooksey teamed with senior Crystal Stock (Mt. Vernon, Indiana) as well as sophomores Missy Burgin (Sellersburg, Indiana) and Natalie Clark (Newburgh, Indiana) to earn All-America honors in the Distance Medley Relay Friday night, while sophomore Candace Perry’s (Anderson, Indiana) third-place finish in the long jump also netted All-America honors.

USI was in a tie for seventh in the team standings with 10 points after the first day of competition. The Eagles, who finished seventh at the NCAA II Outdoor Championships last May, finished the meet with 15 points. Complete team results will be released later.
