Huskies Get More Mid-Distance Work At JDL DMR Invite
SEATTLE -- One day after posting the No. 3 DMR time in the NCAA this season, all four legs of the women's relay were back in action today in individual events at the JDL DMR Invitational in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Madison Heisterman, Anna Gibson, and Carley Thomas all raced the 800-meters, while Allie Schadler ran a mile.
Yesterday, the trio ran a DMR time of 11:04.73, which due to the flat 200-meter size of the JDL Fast Track, got converted down to 10:57.69 for qualifying and record purposes. That ranks third in the NCAA behind Arkansas and Virginia Tech.
The group doubled back today. In the women's 800-meters, Thomas was fifth in 2:07.10. There is a conversion on mid-distance marks as well, so Thomas' time converts to approximately 2:05.6, just slightly off her season-best. Heisterman and Gibson ran identical times of 2:07.85, which converts to 2:06.40. That's just off Gibson's best, but is a slight indoor PR for Heisterman.
Schadler had the longest leg last night, running the 1,600-meters, and ran another mile this morning. She was sixth in 4:46.45, which converts down to about 4:43.6.
Washington will be back in action in the Dempsey next weekend to close out the home indoor season with the Pac-12 Invitational next Friday and Saturday.
