AMES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s track and field team opened up competition at the Iowa State open with three top-10 finishes on the first day of action in Ames.

“Both teams performed well considering we trained through this meet,” Drake head coach Natasha Kaiser-Brown said. “We worked our teams hard all week and hope to see that investment pay off in the coming weeks.”

Whitney Westrum (Waukee, Iowa) led the Bulldogs with a fourth-place showing in the 200 meters with a time of 25.38. Teammate Sarah Yeager (Ottumwa, Iowa) finished 10th in the event in 25.94 just ahead of 10 other Bulldogs that stepped into the blocks for the 200 meters.

Drake’s distance medley relay ‘A’ team of Taylor Scholl (Prior Lake, Minn.), Westrum, Celeste Arteaga (Rock Island, Ill.) and Emma Huston (Des Moines, Iowa) finished ninth with a time of 12:34.17. The Bulldogs ‘B’ squad was 13th at 13:09.53.

Drake’s only competitor in the field events on Friday, Ariel Kinlow (Brown Deer, Wis.), was 17th in the long jump.

The remainder of Drake’s team will compete on Saturday in the second day of the Iowa State Open.
