FHSU Athletics

MARYVILLE, Mo. — The Fort Hays State women’s track and field team had an individual champion, broke two school records and totaled two All-MIAA medals on Sunday on the final day of the 2022 MIAA Indoor Championships.

The Tigers earned five provisional grades that day, ending the week with four All-MIAA honors, eight provisional performances and two school records. FHSU ranked fifth as a team with 65 team points, the best indoor league meet finish and the best point total for the Tigers since FHSU joined the MIAA in 2006-07.

Lyrical Holman won the MIAA 60m title for the second year in a row, leading the field in a time of 7.47. It was his third first-place finish in a league meet in his career with an outdoor 100m title. The junior sprinter then earned her seventh All-MIAA honor after breaking her school record and finishing second in the 200m with a time of 24.32.

At the end of the day, Holman teamed up with Kendra Clary, Taylor Savolt and Mattie Rossi break the school record for the 4x400m relay with a time of 3:48.58. The team placed fifth in the race after shaving nearly three seconds off the best mark in school history.

Savolt and Rossi also competed in other events on Sunday, with Savolt finishing fourth in the triple jump with a 39-0.5 jump. Rossi placed seventh in the 60m hurdles with a time of 8.68. The Tigers also earned a team point on the one-mile run, where Gretchen Kuffel placed eighth with a time of 5:02.15, the second fastest time on the FHSU DII era performance chart.

The Tigers will now await the release of selected entries for the NCAA DII Indoor Championships, which are expected to be posted on NCAA.com on Tuesday afternoon (March 1). The championships are scheduled for March 11-12 and are being held this year in Pittsburg, Kan.
