(Ypsilanti, Mich.) While windy conditions are typical in Michigan during March and April, the constant and chilly gusts turned the Eastern Michigan University Invitational into a contest of finding shelter between events.
Cornerstone's women managed to do well in several events, though. Friday evening Melissa Sawicki executed her race plan perfectly, drafting through three laps of her heat in the 1500, then covering the final 400 meters in 1:17 to finish in a personal best 5:01.98 and 19th in the field of 35.
As night fell, so did the temperature, but not the wind. Three women cleared 11' in the pole vault before conditions got the best of them. Brand Hagan was one of the three and took third based on misses.
Kayla Wilson took advantage of the tailwind on the long jump runway to go 17' 8" for third place. Kay-De Vaughn took third in the triple jump with a mark of 35' 3.75".
