Sophomore Alexxa DeQuevedo (Silver Bay, Minn./William Kelley) won the 60-meter hurdles for the second consecu­tive meet and placed third in the high jump as the UW-Superior women’s track and field team competed in the second Upper Midwest Ath­letic Conference (UMAC) meet of the season last Saturday at the Dr. Lydia C. Thering Fieldhouse.

DeQuevedo ran 10.49, besting the field by more than a half second in the 60 hurdles, while bet­tering her time from the first meet of the year by two tenths of a second. Her high jump mark of 1.40 meters was just four inches from the top spot in that event. Fresh­man Claudia Androsky (Superior, Wis./Superior Senior) and sophomore Jessica Newman also performed well in the 60 hurdles. Androsky was sixth at 12.11 and New­man was seventh at 13.08.

Freshman Brooke Koenen (Superior, Wis./Senior Senior) was third in the long jump with a leap of 4.07 meters on her third attempt.

Sophomore Kasha Hughlett (Maple, Wis./Northwestern) finished second in the weight throw with a mark of 12.89 meters, while junior Maddie Dreyer (Roch­ester, Minn./Mayo) was sixth with a toss of 10.69 meters. Hughlett and Dreyer were fourth and seventh in the shot put, respectively with marks of 9.68 meters and 6.75 meters.

Junior Nanako Hara (Nishitokyo, Japan/Inter­national Christian Uni­versity) and sophomore Kennedy Robelia (Du­rand, Wis./Durand) ran third and fourth in the 5,000 meters in times of 21:57.24 and 22:17.18.
