The UT Martin Hun-ter Seat riders saw their season come to an end Friday night at the Varsity Equestrian National Championship when No. 6 South Carolina posted a 5-3 win over the No. 10 Skyhawks.
UTM runner Thurman
UT Martin senior cross country runner Allen Thurman broke his fifth career school record over the weekend at the Rose Hulman Twilight Meet in Terre Haute, Ind.
“Allen won his race running solo en route to another university record,” UT Martin head coach Gordon Sanders said. “He is one of many rounding into peak fitness.”
The Skyhawks had four competitors take part in the 1500 meter run. Laura Wind competed in the women’s side and put together a time of 5:15.81 for a 10th place finish. On the men’s side, Ryan Pett placed in 10th with his time of 4:08.42, while Vance Pounders (4:16.81) and Trevor Hancock (4:27.33) followed closely behind.
Wind, Pett and Pounders also all competed in the 800 meter run. Wind produced a time of 2:32.28 on the women’s side. Pett came in 10th with a 2:00.61 final time, while Pounders completed the race in 2:02.76.
In the same event that Thurman broke his record, Hancock ran the course in 9:57.70. In the women’s event, Amanda Wardlaw finished with a time of 11:55.20.
Ellie Luze and Emily Jones each represented the Skyhawks in the 5000 meter run, finishing with times of 19:41.88 and 21:47.08, respectively.
In the face of a potential washout, Sanders was pleased that the Skyhawks continued their wildly successful spring track season at this meet.
“We almost cancelled the meet because of storm warnings sent to us by the race director,” Sanders said. “None of that happened until the meet was over. I’m glad we made the trip – all but three student athletes had personal bests at this competition.”
James Barber of Friendship recorded a hole-in-one recently at Doe Valley Golf Course.
