Track & Field Wins Eight Individual Titles At Big East Outdoor Championships

Unfortunately, that's spread amongst both the men's and women's teams, so it doesn't result in a team title for either side.

Carlye Schuh won the women's long jump at the Big East championships over the weekend.

Here's the good news: The men's and women's team each won four events and the two squads combined for points in 13 other events.

The bad news is that there's A LOT of events, so the women ended up finishing third for the whole meet with 120 points, while the men's squad tallied 105.5 points and finished fourth.

On the men's side, John Krzyszkowski broke his own school record in the javelin throw, hitting 65.31 meters as he was the only competitor to clear 58 meters.  Will Koeck continued his outstanding season by winning the hammer throw, while Joel Swanberg finished with the top mark in the pole vault.  Michael Saindon won the men's high jump for Marquette with a leap of 2.08 meters.

Samantha Kennedy matched Koeck's effort by winning the women's version of the hammer throw.  Kennedy was joined on the winner's platform by Kristen Gaffey (shot put), Tate Pashibin (heptathlon), and Carlye Schuh (long jump).  Schuh also recorded the second fastest 100 meters time in school history while placing sixth at 11.87 seconds.
