MAC Champions: Women’s Indoor Track and Field
Congratulations to the EMU women’s track and field team, who capped off an excellent season by storming their way to the MAC Indoor Championship—their first championship in 11 years!
Congratulations also go out to sophomore Ashlee Abraham, who won the 200-meter dash and set a MAC record en route to winning the 60-meter dash. Senior Lauren Quaintance won the 800-meter run, with junior Beverly Elcock finishing second. The Eagles also edged out Western Michigan for gold in the 4×400-meter relay.
In her fifth season coaching at EMU, Sue Parks was named the MAC Coach of the Year, an award she won multiple times while coaching at Ball State (1994-2006) but her first with the Eagles. In addition, Abraham and Quaintance were named to the All-MAC First Team, while Elcock, senior Jessica Hemingway, and freshman Shnell Wishart were named to the second team.
