Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Advances, But Falls Short at GNAC Championship Meet

shortage of wall space in Brougham Pavilion because Seattle Pacific University women’s teams have been papering the place with Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) championship banners. In the autumn, soccer and cross country did the honors, with basketball and indoor track following suit in winter.

The Falcons were top contenders for the conference outdoor track and field title May 8 in Monmouth, Oregon, but ended up placing second to Western Oregon. If they had won, it would have been the fifth GNAC championship for women’s teams this school year.

Surprisingly, the women’s track program went undefeated in five scored meets through the month of April despite the season-long absence of, among others, All-Americans Danielle Ayers-Stamper and Ally Studer. Injuries have also racked the men’s team, which placed sixth at GNAC.

In gymnastics, a string of 20 consecutive national top-four finishes for the Falcons came to an end. Missing key all-arounder Corrie McDaniel, Seattle Pacific finished seventh at the USA Gymnastics Championships April 8 in Denton, Texas. Individually, Kari Kelly, Jaynie Reynolds, Debra Huss and Sarah Sullivan were named All-Americans.
