SOUTH BEND, Ind. & HILLSDALE, Mich. (EMUEagles.com) - The Eastern Michigan University women's track and field concluded its busy weekend at the Meyo Invitational and Hillsdale Wide Track Classic Saturday, Feb. 3, ultimately claiming three event titles.

The Meyo Invitational saw two student-athletes earn exceptional personal-records in the form of seniors Jenna Wyns (Londerzeel, Belgium-Sportschool KA2) and Natalie Cizmas (Clinton Twp., Mich.-Chippewa Valley). Wyns broke her 800m time by nearly three seconds to climb up to second all-time in the EMU record book, now trailing just Mireille Sankatsing, who set the all-time record of 2:03.47 in 1992. Additionally, Cizmas ran strong to a finish of 4:39.98 in the mile, which nearly missed the all-time mark of 4:39.84, while topping her old personal-best that she set in last week's GVSU Lints Alumni Open, Jan. 27

The Eagles also had plenty of success in the Hillsdale Classic, with senior Dace Dreimane (Ventspils, Latvia-Ventspils Gymnasium No. 1) winning both the high jump and triple jump titles with a height of 1.67m and distance of 12.32m, respectively. Junior Jessica Harris (Slidell, La.-Slidell), once again, finished atop the sprints competition, earning the 60m title with a time of 7.61, while sophomore Brittni Mason (Richmond Heights, Ohio-West Geauga) placed fourth. Junior Kristine Bourg (Shorewood, Ill.-Joliet West) had her best performance in the event to date, setting a new career-best in the 60m with a time of 7.80, which earned her sixth place.

The Green and White will have a similar slate of competition next weekend, as it will send representatives to both the Husky Invite in Seattle, Wash. and the GVSU Big Meet in Allendale, Mich. Friday-Saturday, Feb. 9-10.
