BROOKINGS, S.D. – Throwers Michael Quesenberry and Ian Collins each enjoyed personal-record throws in the shot put today, highlighting the University of North Dakota’s performance at South Dakota State’s Jim Emmerich Invitational at the Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex.

Quesenberry heaved a Big Sky Conference-leading throw of 55 feet, 9 inches (16.99 meters). That was not only a personal record for the sophomore from Billings, Mont., but the fourth-best shot put mark in program history.

His teammate, Edina, Minn., native Collins, logged the seventh-best mark in school history, a PR-throw of 53-7.5 (16.34). It also stands as the No. 3 shot put mark in the Big Sky this season.


Not to be outdone, a trio of runners also established new personal records for the Fighting Hawks. Blake Hollingsworth, a freshman from Oakes, N.D., clocked a time of 50.19 seconds in the 400-meters that stands as the ninth-best in program history.

Sophomore Scott Kvidera had a PR of 4:21.40 in the mile, while Javen Butler ran the 60-meters in 7.06 seconds. Both times rank 10th all-time at North Dakota in their respective events.

UND returns to action next Friday at the Jack Johnson Invitational in Minneapolis and on Saturday at the Cobber Duals in Moorhead, Minn.
