The respective coaching staffs for the UC men's and women's track & field teams had different goals going into Indiana University's Hoosier Hills Invitational, but both teams achieved them successfully. The men's team improved upon its performances from its previous meet and the women's team prepared itself for next weekend's BIG EAST championship meet. The Hoosier Hills meet, held at Indiana's Gladstein Fieldhouse, wrapped up its second day of competition on Saturday.

The women's indoor team took a limited squad to the Hoosier Hills, leaving some at home to rest and train for BIG EAST and others to the meet to either post BIG EAST qualifying times or to finish out the regular season on a strong note ahead of outdoor. The Bearcats met their objectives, particularly after Cameron Gardner qualified for the conference championship in the 60 meters with a 7.72 time which was third-best in the preliminaries. Gardner nearly grabbed two qualifiers on the day, just missing the cut in the 200 meters by .21 after winning her heat.

In the 60 meters, Gardner's teammates Morgan Gordon (7.72) and Shanice Smith (7.81)rounded out a performance that saw UC with three of the top eight times.

Je'Rica Sanders already had a BIG EAST qualifying time in the 60-meters hurdles, b ut on Friday she put herself into amongst the contenders for the title after shaving .14 off her season-best time.

UC placed three in the top seven in the pole vault. Emily Clay and Chelsea Vaughan both clearned 11' 11.75" for fourth and Alyssa McBride was seventh at 11' 5.75". Monica Phillips was fourth in the weight throw (55' 8.5") and Ashleigh Pickens finished seventh in the high jump (5' 3.75").

The Bearcats' men's team notched several top performances, highlighted by Michael Nwankwo's win in the triple jump with a 48' 7.75" leap. Josh Dangel was third in the pole vault (16' 3.5"). UC had three of the top nine finishers in the long jump, with Marquis Brookins placing fourth (22' 9.25"), Tariq Sanders seventh (21' 9.5") and Kyle Donthnier ninth (21' 7.5"). Josh Province was seventh in the weight throw (50' 4.5").

On the track, UC had great results in the middle-to-long distances. Jeffrey Griffiths was second in the 3,000 meters (8:30.31) and Colin Cotton fifth (8:36.09). Ryan Wynn was second in the 800 meters (1:54.88) and Cameron Rohmann sixth (1:58.14). Tony Williamson was third in the 600 meters (1:23.28). Chase Beckmann pulled off a pair of 10th-place finishes within an hour in the mile (4:20.81) and 800 meters (1:59.27).

Darnell Gilbert had a spot in Saturday's invitational 400 meters and finished fifth in 49.15. Bryan Maldinger was third in the open 400 meters in 50.60. The 4x400-meters relay team finished fourth in 3:24.20.

Dailyn Moore had the fifth-fastest time in Friday's 60-meters hurdles (8.20). On Saturday, he came within a hundredth of a second of winning, placing second in 8.05.

The men's team's next competition will be on March 1 in a dual meet against Miami University. It will take place at Capital University, the alma mater of men's head coach Bill Schnier. With Schnier's planned retirement at the end of the outdoor season, this will be his last indoor meet.

The women's team will be at the BIG EAST championship Saturday and Sunday, February 16-17, at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva.
