Ferris Teams Perform Well At "Gina" Relays

The Ferris State University men's and women's track and field teams sent selected student-athletes to the annual Hillsdale "Gina" Relays held this past weekend (April 23-25) in Hillsdale, Mich.

A number of teams from all levels competed in the annual event, which attracts top talent from around the state and the country each year at Ken Herrick Track.

Bulldog senior Mikinzie Stuart was third overall in the women's 1,500-meter invite field (4:26.53) with a time that surpassed the NCAA-II National Automatic qualifying mark.

Sophomore Tina Muir took fourth place in the 5,000-meter invitational field (17:11.37) and provisionally qualified in the event for the national meet.

Sophomore Paige Onweller placed 10th in the 1,500-meter invite (4:37.41) while reaching the national provisional qualification time.

Finally, junior Megan Josey was 12th in the 5,000 meters (18:55.06) for the Bulldog women.

Junior Greg Burns placed third overall in the pole vault (15-11) to guide the men's squad. His effort represented the third-best all-time outdoor effort in school history and was a national provisional mark.

Freshman Tyler Crossman was 16th in the 5,000 meters (15:33.94), junior Justin Price finished 17th in the 400 meters (50.15) and sophomore Chris Skory was 18th in the javelin (139-00).
