Conference Championship Alum News

Just a quick post to keep everyone updated on the Wolverine alums.

Nate Purdue dropped a 1:58 in the open 800 for Hays St. Univ. over in Kansas, which is his fastest 800of the winter.  This tight turns and Nate's long legs make running that 800 tough, psyched to see such a fast time going onto the outdoor season!

Katelyn Wojan ran a 2:23 800 for Drury Univ, getting her an 8th place in the Great Lakes Valley Confernece Championship.  Two low 2:20's in consecutive weeks, keep that ball rolling into the spring Woj!  The outdoor season is ready for some fast Wojan times!

Alex Balsiger ran a heroic last leg in the DMR, bringing CSU to 2nd place, and also got a top ten in the mile at the Mountain West Conference Championships.  Not the finish in the mile he wanted, but Alex had a superb indoor season.

And old Steve-O Busch ran a 4:16 mile in the DMR for Drury Univ., diving across the line and slamming his knee to bring his team up to 4th in that race.  He also ran a sub 8:45 3k for 8th place, capping off a very successful indoor season (and collegiate indoor career) for him.

UNH also had a great weekend, rallying up to third place over all at the Eastern Collegiate Ski Championships.  Liz Guiney came in 5th, and girl Kelsey Hoar came in 19th to pace the Wildcats to a really great finish at Middlebury.  Go 'Cats!!

Hopefully all the present Wolverines can live up to the alums high standards.  We might not have a lot of them, but the athletes we do have are going to be pretty good!
