By Matt Wurzburger
Columbus, OH - The Lindsey Wilson women's indoor track and field team edged out Life (Ga.) to win the first-ever Mid-South Conference Women's Indoor Track & Field Championships, hosted by Capital University (Ohio), on Saturday.
The Blue Raiders finished the day with 120 total team points. Second-place Life recorded 110.
Paige Pettell received MSC Freshman of the Year honors after runner-up finishes in both the shot put and weight throw.
Pettell finished second in the shot put with a mark of 12.83 meters, just .07 meters behind champion Kalea Barnett of Cumberland (Tenn.).
The Vine Grove, Kentucky native also recorded a toss of 13.78 meters in the weight throw.
In all, Blue Raider athletes received eight All-MSC Team nods.
VaShawnda Smith and Alexia DeHaven-Boyd received First Team All-MSC honors in the 200-meter dash and 400-meter dash, respectively.
Smith took first place in the 200 meter with a time of 26.23 seconds, which also set a new indoor school record. The sophomore from Dyersburg, Tennessee also posted a fourth-place finish in the 60 meter and a fifth-place result in the 400 meter.
DeHaven-Boyd set the school indoor record in winning the 400-meter dash. The sophomore won the event in an "A" cut time of 56.32. She also received Second Team All-Conference honors in both the 60 meter and 200 meter, finishing with times of 7.92 and 26.51 seconds, respectively.
Annesha Harris was the runner up in the 60-meter hurdles, posting a time of 9.60 seconds in the finals. Harris also placed third in the long jump with a "B" standard mark of 5.40 meters.
Rachel Green placed second in the high jump and set the program indoor record in the process with a mark of 1.58 meters. Rachel Browning finished immediately behind her teammate with a third-place clearance of 1.53 meters.
Mia Cornette turned in a third-place finish in the 5,000-meter run. The junior completed the event in 20:17.57. Cornette also finished seventh in the 3,000-meter run.
The Blue Raiders saw two athletes place in the top eight in the 600 meter in Oreatha Hurt and Kaile Short.
Heather Wilson and Breana Conway finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the 1,000-meter run, finishing less than three seconds apart.
Hurt turned in a sixth-place finish in the triple jump, finishing one spot ahead of teammate Hayley Respress.
