Glovers Posts NCAA Qualifying Mark
Callie Glover (Bartlett) put herself into position to qualify for next month's NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships with a provisional marks in the hammer throw.
Glover made her mark with a toss of 160 feet, 6 inches (48.93 meters).
"Callie is off to a fast start this outdoor season in the hammer breaking her own school record from the previous weekend," said Coach David Astrauskas.
The women's track and field team will have an opportunity to better its marks this weekend on more familiar territory.
SIUE will play host to the Cougar Classic on Saturday at Korte Stadium.
"We're excited to have our home opener this weekend. We really want to make a good showing for the home crowd," said Coach Ben Beyers. "We don't get to perform at home often, so it's always fun to show the student population what a great track team they have. They can watch first-hand rather than just reading about us in the paper."
