From University of Chicago Athletics

In the final tune-up before the NCAA Division III indoor track & field national qualifiers are revealed, the University of Chicago track & field team had several strong individual showings at both Carthage College and Wartburg College Final Qualifier meets.

First-year Isabel Maletich continued to improve on her own school record in the triple jump with a win and a new career-best (11.82m) at Carthage, while pole vaulters Sidney Lampert (fourth, 3.46m), Rachel TerHaar (sixth, 3.31m) and Tessa Pribitkin (eighth, 3.16m) all placed in the Top 8.

Saturday, junior Claire Brockway ran her best time of the year in the 5,000 meters (17:23.54) as did sophomore Sophie Elgamal in the 3,000 (9:56.37) to give both runners a strong shot at qualifying for the national field.

Other high placers at Wartburg for the Maroon women included Mary Martin in the 200 (second, 25.72) and long jump (second, 5.50m) and Nicole VacaGuzman in the 800 (second, 2:17.07).
