LAUREL — The Carroll College Fighting Saints track team recorded seven first place finishes in their first track meet of the outdoor season at the Yellowjackets/Battlin’ Bears Open on Saturday in Laurel, Montana.

Carroll women’s 4×100 relay team — made up of Brooke Endy, Shae Helterbran, Keely Ehmann and Monica White, won the event in a time of 49.69, narrowly missing the NAIA B-Standard of 48.32 in the group’s first race together this season.

Nikki Krueger secured a pair of top finishes, winning both the shot put (12.25 meters) and discus (42.31 meters). Her marks put her very close to qualifying for nationals.

Freshman Noah Majerus won the 800-meter race in a time of 1:55.01.

John Cooney and Spencer Swaim finished in second and third, respectively, in the 5,000-meter run. Cooney ran a time of 15:59.65, while Swaim went for 16:03.39.

Bryce Green, Keven Kailey and Bryan Brensdal went 1-2-3 in the 110-meter hurdles. Green won the event with a time of 15.66.

Green also secured a win in the 400-meter hurdles, edging out teammate Daniel Pendergast with a time of 56.73.

Garrett Kocab won the discus throw with a toss of 45.87 meters.

The Saints head to Spokane next weekend for the WAR meet.
