Spartans compete at frozen Sioux City Relays

SIOUX CITY — The Southwestern track and field team traveled here for the Sioux City Relays on Friday and Saturday, competing in tough conditions.

Head coach Bill Huntington said you could see where meet workers had scraped the ice out of the steeplechase pit and placed it on the side of the track.

“It was, I think 30 degrees. With the wind chill, I don’t even know what it was,” he said. “It was crazy cold. It was unbelievable, awful cold. It was probably about 20 miles per hour winds coming right into your face as you finished. It might have been as cold of a track meet as I’ve ever been to.”

Still, the meet went on and the Spartans had several events place well.

One of the biggest highlights of the day was Marquis Flowers finishing third in the open 400 meters with a time of 51.44.

“In that weather, that’s just tremendous,” Huntington said. “The three guys who went 1-2-3 went bang, bang, bang.”

The men’s 1,600 medley relay team of Dave Prchal, Auston Carter, Rayvonne Brown and Joe Bierl finished eighth with a time of 3:54.11.

The men’s 4x800 relay team of Brown, Carter, Prchal and Joe Bierl finished fifth in 8:22.45.

On the women’s side, Kalli McCann finished fifth in the 5,000 meter run. McCann clocked a time of 20:34.84.

Molly Schimp finished sixth in the high jump, clearing 5-0.25.

Sophomore Regina Hafner took 15 seconds off of her 1,500 meter time, finishing in 5:38.85.

Southwestern returns to action Saturday at Central College.
