2021 Indoor Season Review
Oregon State took part in two indoor meets last season before jumping into a full slate of outdoor meets.
On Feb. 12, the Beavers traveled to Ames, Iowa for the Iowa State Classic, where Grace Fetherstonhaugh set the program record for the indoor 5000 meters, stopping the clock at 16:00.9 to tie for second. Kaylee Mitchell clocked the second-best time in Beaver history (16:12.3) to place sixth and Meagen Lowe finished 11th with a time of 17:00.3.
Fetherstonhaugh's time qualified her for the NCAA Indoor Championships, held in Fayetteville, Ark. on Mar. 12, where she placed 14th overall in the 5000 meters with a time of 16:22.03. She was the third Beaver in program history to compete at the indoor championships, joining Carina Westover (1984, high jump) and Laura Carlyle (2012, mile) in the record books.
