Jan. 8, 2011
PROVO, Utah- The University of Utah women's track and field team wrapped up its first meet of the 2011 indoor season. On the second day of competition, the Utes were led by Angela Kaplar's second-place finish in the 60-meter hurdles. Kaplar set a life- time best 8.64, which ranks third all-time for the Utes.
"That was a great start for Angela," says Utah head coach Kyle Kepler. "Mindy Robbins (BYU) had to run a lifetime best to beat Angela."
In the 300m event, sophomore Stephanie Muelleck finished first for the Utes (eighth overall) with a time of 42.75. Rosalie Griffin (42.84), Jessica Moviano (43.47), and Kayla McMurray (44.39) finished in the ninth, tenth and eleventh-place, respectively.
"This was a good start to the season," said Kepler. "It gave some of the kids a chance to get their feet wet in their first NCAA Division I experience."
The Utes season continues on Jan. 14 at the Bengal Shoot Out in Pocatello, Idaho.
