Gutierrez improves hurdle time for Bucs

Print Article

NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Two Beloit College athletes improved their national ranks at the North Central College Gregory Final Qualifier, their final opportunity to advance to the 2019 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Qualifiers for the D-III event will be announced later this week.

Jose Gutierrez all but punched his ticket to the outdoor championships by shaving nearly four-tenths of a second off his season best time in the 400-meter hurdles on Thursday. He was clocked in 53.02 seconds, the ninth fastest time in the nation, to finish second in the meet.

Lena Ramsey added seven inches to her triple jump distance, posting a leap of 11.79 meters (38-8.25) to win the event on Thursday. Her distance ties for the 16th-best leap recorded in D-III.

Teammate Eva Laun-Smith did not better her distance Thursday, finishing second (38-02.75),

but still ranks 25th with her mark of 11.67 meters (38-3.5), registered at the Wisconsin Private College Championships.

Aminah Crawford narrowly missed a season best in the 100-meter dash, finishing second in 12.22. She remains tied for 20th nationally with a time of 12.18 earlier this season. She won the 200 meters with a time of 25.26, a season best by a 10th of a second.

Scott Fuchs fell shy of his season best in the javelin, but still holds a top-15 mark with a distance of 59.92 meters (196-7.25). His throw of 57.66 was good enough for second in the Final Qualifier.

Ramsey, Laun-Smith and Crawford were joined by Aleeshah Heinzen in the 4x100 Thursday. Unfortunately, trouble on a baton exchange held the Bucs back from a great time. Heinzen also competed in the long jump at the final qualifier, finishing eighth in 16-11.25. Shelby Kline took nearly a second off her seed time in the 800 crossing the line in 2:22.08 for 17th.

Dan Arkes (10,000 meter run), Ethan Harycki (hammer throw) and Mauricio Penn (800) also competed in the final qualifier. Arkes was 10th and Harycki fourth.
