Hall leads VU Track & Field in successful season-opener

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. – In a meet that wasn’t team-scored, the Vincennes University Track & Field Teams started off their 2015 indoor season with a very successful day Saturday at the Wabash College Robert H. Johnson Little Giant Invitational.

The Trailblazers’ efforts included a new VU school record, eight NJCAA Indoor National Championship Meet-qualifying efforts and several event wins.

The national qualifiers were: Jacques Hall, 60 Meter Dash (school record); TaPring Goatee, One Mile Run; Isaiah Thomas, Long Jump; Eric Blackman, High Jump; Kenneth Lloyd, High Jump; Kaitlyn Moricz, Pole Vault; Trey Kennedy, Pole Vault and Candela Guijarro, High Jump.

Several VU athletes won events. The complete meet results are attached (*Note: VU’s Hanna Wise won the 400 Meter Dash but it was omitted in the results).

“This was a very solid start to the season. The hard work many of the athletes have been putting in is already beginning to show,” said VU Coach Chris Gafner. “We had several qualifiers and many more athletes that were very close to qualifying. We have to keep working hard so we can continue to better our performances in the coming weeks."

The Vincennes University Athletic Department hosts Play4Kay and raises donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund annually. VU Women’s Basketball Coach and Athletic Director Harry Meeks has a special connection to the late Yow, who was the longtime coach at North Carolina State. He had the pleasure of meeting her while he was an assistant coach at Western Carolina University. This left a lasting impression on him and made this cause important to him and the Trailblazers.
