Christy Dixon

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.University of Southern Indiana freshman Christy Dixon (Owensboro, Kentucky) ran the 800-meter leg of the distance medley relay (DMR) in a career-best two minutes, 16.1 seconds to help the Screaming Eagles to a first-place finish and the nation's second-fastest time in the DMR Friday evening at the Hoosier Hills Invitational.

Junior Missy Burgin (Sellersburg, Indiana) started the DMR by running the 1,200-meter leg in three minutes, 37.4 seconds. Fellow classmate Natalie Clark (Newburgh, Indiana) followed with a 59.1 second split in the 400-meter leg, while senior Crystal Stock (Mt. Vernon, Indiana) anchored the event by running the 1,600-meter leg in four minutes, 57.4 seconds.

USI's time of 11 minutes, 50.31 seconds is the second-fastest time in school history and virtually assures the team a spot in the NCAA II Indoor Championships next month. The Eagles ran the DMR in 11 minutes, 46.29 seconds at the NCAA II Indoor Championships last year.

Other top-five finishers for the women's squad Friday evening included junior Molly Gilland (Osgood, Indiana) and freshman Allison Shafer (Plainville, Indiana). Gilland, who is expected to compete at the DePauw Classic today, finished in a tie for second in the high jump with a mark of five feet, 4.25 inches, while Shafer was third in the 3,000 meters with a time of 10 minutes, 32.54 seconds.

Jesse Davis

Senior Jesse Davis (Bloomington, Indiana) and freshman Chris Kirkwood (Bicknell, Indiana) led the men's squad. Davis was second in the 3,000 meters with a time of eight minutes, 46.03 seconds, and fifth in the mile with an NCAA II provisional qualifying time of four minutes, 12.48 seconds. Kirkwood was second in the high jump with a leap of six feet, 4.75 inches.
