School and Personal Records Fall at WTAM Spring Break Classic T&F Meet

New Mexico Military Institute Women’s Track and Field Team journeyed to Canyon, TX to take part in the West Texas Spring Break Classic.  Many PR’s were recorded on the day, but the highlight was Ana Baleveicau’s 400 meter hurdles.  Her time of 1:07.29 broke the existing NMMI Record but more importantly, qualified her for the NJCAA National Championships for Track and Field.

The next highest place was the 4 x 400 meter relay, which placed 3rd.  The relay team, consisting of Karla Palacios, Klaudia Szych, Alisha Dickson, and Ana Baleveicau raced to a time of 4:17.50.  Alisha Dickinson ran to a 4th place finish in the 400 meter dash with a time of 1:03.68.  Karla Palacios placed 5th in the 400 meter hurdles with a time of 1:15.75.  Liliana Rico placed in the 100 meter dash with a time of 16.38.  Meriel Simpson placed 9th in the 100 meters with the time of 17.51.  Rico and Simpson placed 7th and 8th in the 200 meter dash, with Rico running 35.07 which was a PR and Simpson running 42.71.

On the Field events side, Etta Briscoe had 2 PR’s on the way to three 6th place finishes in the shot, discus and hammer throw.  She had a PR in the discus with a throw of 93’2” and had another PR in the hammer throw with a throw of 84’ 8”.  She also threw 32’ 5” in the shot put.

The next meet for NMMI is the UTEP Invitational in El Paso, TX, Saturday March 23.  The young team will have to contend with many NCAA Division I teams at this meet.  Hopefully, this will inspire the team to have numerous other School Records and NJCAA National Track Meet qualifications.
