Weber State's track and field team claimed six individual titles and the women's squad finished second as the Wildcats competed at the Big Sky Championships from May 9-11, hosted by the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana.
Tawnie Moore took another step in her 100 meter hurdles career, besting her own Big Sky record with a run of 13.11 seconds to win the event in Montana. It was the fourth career conference title for the Fremont High alumnus and she became the the first Wildcat to win that event twice.
Nathan Dunivan dusted off the record books for Weber State by winning the hammer and the discus. His hammer throw of 198 feet, 9 inches was the third-best throw in school history and he became the first WSU athlete to win the hammer throw since David Blair in 1999.
Dunivan's discus toss of 186 feet, 3 inches made him the first Wildcat to win that event since 2009. He also became the first thrower in school history to win two Big Sky titles in the same year.
Emily Morgan won the headliner, dashing in 11.84 seconds to take the women's 100 meters. Earlier in a 100 preliminary, she ran a school record 11.51.
Kate Sorensen won the 400 meter hurdles at 58.43, the first career title for the Gunnison Valley native.
Lindsey Johnson claimed the women's high jump title at 5 feet, 10.75 inches, which is the fourth-best mark in school history.
Overall, the women's team finished in second place with 116 points, behind winner Sacramento State's 144.
“We had a really fantastic team meet with so many great performances across the board,” WSU women’s head coach Paul Pilkington said in a statement from the school. “We had so many athletes step up and contribute, and really performed well as a team. It was a very balanced performance.”
Southern Utah won the men's team title with 135.3 points, edging Northern Arizona (134). The Weber State men finished eighth with 49.3 points.
For those Weber State athletes who have posted qualifying marks throughout the season, the next step is the NCAA West Regionals held May 23-25 in Sacramento, California.
