Bulldogs Turn In Solid Distance Performance At IU Relays

Feb. 3, 2008

Senior Kent Wories recorded his second consecutive lifetime best effort to highlight the performance of Butler's track and field athletes at the IU Relays on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1-2. The non-scoring meet was held at the Harry Gladstein Fieldhouse on the Indiana University campus.

Wories placed sixth in the men's 5,000 meter run with a lifetime best time of 15:05.80. It was his first race since Jan. 19, when he posted a lifetime best effort of 8:51.87 in the 3,000 meter run at the Notre Dame Opener.

Butler also picked up an eighth place finish in the men's 5,000 meter run from freshman Matt Lawder. Running that distance for the first time, Lawder recorded a time of 15:10.23.

Senior Sarah Kemple also turned in a solid effort in the women's 5,000 meter run, finishing 14th in 18:22.45. It was her fastest 5,000 meter time in three years.

Butler head coach Matt Roe will split his team at a pair of meets on Feb. 8-9. The Bulldogs will enter athletes at both the Meyo Invitational, hosted by the University of Notre Dame, and at the DePauw Invitational.
