MADISON, Wis.-- The Wisconsin women’s track and field team wrapped up competition at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., at the Randal Tyson Center Saturday while UW placed two youngsters in the top-seven in the junior race at the USA Cross Country Championships in Boulder, Colo.
Out in Colorado, freshman Sarah Disanza, who placed in the top two for UW in every cross country meet this fall, took third overall in the junior women’s six-kilometer race with a time of 21 minutes, 8.32 seconds at Flatirons Golf Course. Only Allie Buchalski (21:04.70) and Elise Cranny (20:13.76) placed ahead of Disanza.
Fellow freshman Jamie Shannon took seventh with a time of 21:50.91. She competed in only one six-kilometer race for the cross country team this fall and posted a time of 22:41 in that race.
At the competitive Tyson Invite, the Badgers were led by solid times in the 200 meters.
Sophie Roth posted her second-best time of the season with a 25.21, which was good for a 58th-place finish, while Brenna Detra posted a season-best 25.32 (64th).
Angela Boushea took 18th in the shot put after her third-best performance in the event this year. Her toss soared 44 feet, 2 1/2 inches, while Missouri’s Kearsten Peoples won the event with a toss of 57-5 1/2.
In the college high jump, Taylor Twedt tied for eighth with a mark of 5-3 3/4. Baylor’s Lauren Cook won the event by clearing 5-9 3/4.
The Badgers will get back into action starting next Friday at the Red & White Open at The Shell. UW will also send competitors to the Alex Wilson Invitational in South Bend, Ind., Friday while the USA Indoor Championships will take place Friday through Sunday.
