DES MOINES, Iowa -- With the North Dakota State Dual canceled due to inclement weather, the University of North Dakota instead took its throwers and distance runners to to the Drake University Jim Duncan Invitational.

The distance duo of Erin Wysocki (So., Grand Forks, N.D.) and Lydia Lutz (Fr., Park Rapids, Minn.) each clocked Big Sky automatic qualifying times in the 5,000-meters. Wysocki clocked a time of 18 minutes, 2.58 seconds, while Lutz came in at 18:10.14.

Both runners eclipsed their respective personal records by more than 40 seconds in the process.

A third UND distance runner, freshman Jami Johnson, missed an auto qualifier in the event by only three seconds, but shattered her personal record by 42 seconds. The Glasgow, Mont., native clocked a time of 18:33.58.

In the throws, freshman Molly Griep (Whitewater, Wis.) placed sixth in the discus with a mark of 41.97 meters (137 feet, 4 inches).

The second and final day of competition gets underway Saturday at 10 a.m. at Drake Stadium.
