Goodman, Johnson Lead Strong NDSU Effort at Bison Open
Release: February 09, 2013
FARGO, N.D. - North Dakota State junior Antoinette Goodman won a pair of events, and the Bison women's track & field team won three more at the Bison Open inside the Shelly Ellig Track & Field Facility on Saturday.
Goodman won the 60m dash in 7.77 seconds and took the long jump title with a leap of 18-08.00 (5.69m).
Unattached junior Emily Lesser used a toss of 60-11.25 (18.57m) to take first in the weight throw. Lesser's mark was a personal-best by more than one foot and would rank No. 3 all-time at NDSU had she not been competing unattached.
Johnson registered a personal-best effort in the weight throw by nearly one foot, throwing 55-00.25 (16.77m) for fourth place.
Unattached senior Leslie Brost took the pole vault title with a clearance of 13-07.25 (4.15m). Anna Benke, Caitlin Mack and Brittany Stangl were second, third and fifth, respectively, all clearing 12-01.50 (3.70m).
Kitching was also the runner-up in the 400m dash in 57.74 seconds. Ashley Heinze was one spot behind Kitching in both events, claiming second in the 200m dash and third in the 400m dash.
NDSU will compete at the University of Minnesota Parents' Day Open on Feb. 15-16.
