Women’s Track Picks Up Win at DePauw
        Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s women’s indoor track team won the DePauw Invitational over the weekend, notching three more NCAA provisional qualifiers at DePauw, setting three meet records, and breaking two school records.
        “I felt that everyone involved, both the athletes and the entire coaching staff, all did a fabulous job of staying focused and preparing for a good meet this weekend,” said SIUE women’s track coach Ben Beyers.
        Tairisha Sawyer (Chicago) broke her own school-record in the 200 meters with a mark of 25.31 improving her provisional qualifying mark. Her time ranks 10th nationally.
        “Tairisha had another big drop in time this week in her 200,” said Beyers. “She’s been aiming for this since last year, and this performance really puts her on track to achieve her goals.”
        Callie Glover (Barlett) recorded a new school-record in the weight throw with a toss of 53 feet, 9 inches (16.38 meters) to improve her provisional qualifying mark for the NCAA Championships.
        “Callie is still improving in the weight throw, and with Coach (David) Astrauskas’ help, she is only going to keep getting better,” said Beyers.
        Brittany Reeves (Hanover Park) provisionally qualified in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 8.40.
        “Brittany had another terrific meet,” said Beyers. “Her hurdles have looked very strong in practice lately, and it was great to see her put together a solid performance there.”
        Christen Carducci (Powell, Ohio) finished first in both the one mile and the 3,000 meters. Carducci set season best in both races with a time of 5:07.99 in the mile and 10:29.79 in the 3,000.
