Grace College’s track and field team wrapped up the 2020 NAIA Indoor Championships on a high note on Saturday.
The Lancers had two more events earn All-American status on the final day.
Isaac Beatty placed eighth in the 1,000-meter race, crossing the finish line in 2:31.78.
The women’s 4×400 relay also nabbed an All-American finish. Suzanne Sickafoose, Ashley Stoltzfus, Nordia Campbell and Julia Malson ran 3:50.87 to place fifth in the nation. The group marked the first female indoor All-Americans in Grace’s history.
Prior to this week’s indoor championships, Grace had just one NAIA Indoor All-American in program history (Daniel Njenga, mile, 2001).
“This was an incredible week for Grace track and field. After having one indoor All-American in school history, we placed two relays and two individuals this week,” said Grace head coach Jeff Raymond. “We are excited and hope to carry this into the outdoor season.”
The outdoor season will officially kick off March 28 with the Indiana Wesleyan Polar Bear Meet.
