Trolls Participate In UW-Platteville Invitational

The Trolls made a trip to Wisconsin to take part in the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Invitational. Trinity competed in a field that included over 800 student-athletes and many NCAA Division III schools. While team scores were not calculated the Trolls were challenged in events that held many competitors.

There were a number of good performances for the Trolls. Olivia Hoekstra posted one of the best performances of the day as she took fourth place of 36 competitors in the 400 meter. She posted a time of 1:01.80. Madelyn Clausen also took a fourth place finish when she cleared 5-01 in the high jump. In the weight throw Daisy Geurink reached NCCAA qualifying standards with a throw of 42-09.50. Miranda Nikkel also hit the standard again this season.

For the men Nick Heidinger was the high place finisher as he took eighth of 50 runners in the mile. He crossed the line with a time of 4:43.40.

The teams will compete next in the CCAC Indoor Championships hosted by St. Ambrose University on February 16-17.
