Wildcat track and field teams win 2012 Indoor HAAC Championship

2012 HAAC Champions

LAMONI, Iowa – Coming into the 2012 season, head Baker track and field coach Zach Kindler knew he had a special group. This past weekend solidified any doubt as the men’s and women’s track and field teams won the 2012 Indoor HAAC Championship in Lamoni, Iowa.

Junior Jeremy Gathright (Oceanside, Calif.) highlighted the men’s squad taking first place in the triple jump and long jump. He was also named the Most Outstanding Performer. Katie Thurbon continued her dominance on the women’s side grabbing first place in the women’s pole vault and Tyler Sloan added a first place finish in the 60 meter dash.

“It was an amazing weekend for our kids,” said Baker head coach Zach Kindler. “We had some student-athletes put forth some amazing efforts and I was very pleased with all of our kids across the board. Anytime you can get as many event winners as we had, you know you’ve done an outstanding job. Everybody from one to eight, including our coaching staff has prepared came prepared and in turn that maximized our efforts. We came in with the goal of winning the HAAC Championship at the beginning of the season and the kids have had that determined attitude throughout.”

Baker will now have two weeks to prepare for the 47th Indoor Track and Field National Championships, set to be held Mar. 1-3 in Geneva, Ohio.
