TRACK POSTS EIGHT NATIONAL QUALIFYING MARKS IN SEASON OPENER

The PV Track and Field team opened the 2015 indoor season this weekend with the Puma Indoor Invitational, hosted at Cindy Shoenhair Field. Puma Track and Field athletes got off to a fast start as seven different athletes posted a tally of eight qualifying marks for the NJCAA National Track and Field Championships to be held in Albuquerque, NM March 6-7.

Sophomores, Beth Krasuski and Heather Markovic, became the first to qualify for the Puma women after they both successfully cleared 3.05 meters (10 feet) in the Pole Vault. Next was freshman high jumper, McKenna McGrath, who cleared the national qualifying bar of 1.51 meters en route to a personal best of 1.66 meters (5 feet, 5 ¼ inches).

Several Puma women also posted personal bests in their respective events, most notably was sophomore sprinter, Morgan Chilson, who’s time of 8.02 seconds in the 60 meter dash narrowly missed a school record as it tied the mark set by former Puma Venetia Horn-Nelson in 2003.

The Puma men got their first national qualifier of the season when sophomore, Dionee Marrero, finished third in the 60 meter dash with a time of 6.98 seconds. Marrero also went on to post a qualifying mark in the 200 meter dash, running 22.07 seconds. Also on the track, freshman Erik Oswald, punched his ticket to Albuquerque as he covered 1000 meters in 2:39.24.

In the field events, two Puma men also posted qualifying marks: sophomores, Justin Tobin in the Pole Vault and Craig Mattox in the long jump.

POLE VAULTERS TRAVEL TO RENO POLE VAULT SUMMIT

The Paradise Valley Puma Pole Vault squad will be traveling to Reno, Nevada this weekend to participate in the famed Reno Pole Vault Summit. Sophomore Vaulters Justin Tobin, Bethany Krasuski, and Heather Markovic will participate in clinics and demonstrations on Friday evening before competing in the college section of competition on Saturday.

“This is a great way for our vaulters to open there 2015 seasons,” said PVCC Co-Head Track Coach, Brian Batliner. “This program has a rich pole vaulting tradition and it would be hard to find a more exciting place for our vaulters to start their season than the Reno Pole Vault Summit.”

The rest of the Paradise Valley Track and Field team will continue to train hard this week as they prepare to open their season at home in the Puma Indoor Invitational January 23 & 24.
