MOORHEAD, Minn. – Sophomore thrower Molly Griep broke North Dakota’s 24-year old school record in the shot put on Tuesday night at Concordia College’s Cobber Twilight.

Griep won the event with a throw of 46 feet, 6 inches (14.17 meters) to break the school record of 46-02 ½ that was set by Traci Werner at the 1990 NCAA Division II Championship. It was also the fifth-best mark in the Big Sky this season.

A native of Whitewater, Wis., Griep was also the runner-up in the hammer throw with a personal-record mark of 168-11 (51.48).

Teammate Alyssa Lueck placed third in the shot put and fourth in the discus throw. Also in the discus, freshman Katarina Reller and sophomore Taylor Boster established new personal records. Reller hit hers on her last throw, reaching 138-03 (42.13), while Boster set a PR of 132-06 (40.38).

UND placed the top five runners in the 5,000-meters, led by junior Erin Wysocki who won the race with a time of 18 minutes, 13.39 seconds.

UND also received an event title from freshman Brooke Shimek, who won the 800-meter dash with a time of 2:20.68.

Freshman Darian Hedland tied her PR of 5-02 ¼ (1.58) in the high jump, while junior Sara Lubke was the runner-up in the pole vault after clearing 10-08 ¾ (3.27).

UND is back in action on Friday and Saturday at the UC San Diego Triton Invitational.
