FARGO, N.D. – Multiple University of North Dakota student-athletes enjoyed personal-record performances today at day one of North Dakota State’s Thundering Herd Classic.

One of those PRs came in the pole vault, where sophomore Thea Erickson took first place with a mark of 10 feet, 2 inches. The Emerado, N.D., native provided UND with its lone event title of the day. In the same event, teammate Shea MacGregor tied her PR with a third-place leap of 9 feet, 8 inches.

In the mile run, UND placed four runners in the top eight: Erin Wysocki (2nd), Jessica Lynch (4th), Lydia Lutz (5th) and Jami Johnson (8th). Lynch’s time of 5 minutes, 19.28 seconds established a new personal record.
