AMES, Iowa -- Sophomore sprinter Stephanie Clarke ran a Big Sky Conference Indoor Championship automatic qualifier in the 400-meters today, highlighting North Dakota's day at Iowa State's Bill Bergan Invitational.

Clarke ran a 400 time of 56.84 seconds, good enough for an eighth-place finish in the event. It was the fifth-fastest 400-meters in the Big Sky so far this season.

Clarke's AQ punctuated a strong day for UND that saw five different runners set personal records in their respective events.

A trio of those PRs came in the 3,000-meters (unseeded), where Lydia Lutz (10:22.21), Jessica Lynch (10:22.95) and Jami Johnson (10:34.80) each ran career-best times. Lutz and Lynch placed sixth and seventh, respectively.

In the undseeded mile run, senior Brittany Ungs ran a PR time of 5 minutes, 15.51 seconds.

UND's final PR came in the 200-meter dash, where sophomore Paige Slemmons clocked a time of 25.95 seconds.
