SPOKANE, Wash. – Local products shined on Thursday at the Whitworth Twilight. Lewis-Clark State Track and Field, led by standout performances from Lewiston, Orofino and Asotin natives, tallied seven national standards, four school records and more than 25 personal bests.



“Just another day at the track,” Head Coach Mike Collins said. “More season bests, personal bests, school records, conference qualifiers and national qualifiers. I can’t say enough about how well we are doing right now. Hopefully we can stay healthy and see how things progress. Great day for Madigan (Kelly) and Jennah (Carpenter) as well as three relays that hit national standards. Outstanding.”



The Warrior women hit an automatic standard and set the school record in the 4x100m relay. The team of Madigan Kelly, Emily Collins, Anika Grogan and Karissa Lindner clocked a time of 47.31.
