The Iowa women’s track and field team competed March 28 and 29 at meets in Pella, Iowa, and Palo Alto, Calif.

Head coach Layne Anderson’s squad sent athletes to the Pella’s Central Invitational March 28 to compete in the discus and hammer throws.

The team took the top four spots in the discus, led by senior Majesty Tutson, who notched the highest score with a throw of 164-5. The next three spots were taken by freshman Dakotah Goodell, junior Courtney Fritz, and Amanda Stahle, also a junior. The three women threw 147-2, 143-6, and 142-10, respectively.

Fellow juniors Annemie Smith and Ashlyn Gulvas took the gold and silver in the hammer throw with marks 187-2 and 179-11.

Junior Chelsea Colpitts, who took fourth place, threw 153-1, and Goodell threw 145-5, which placed her at sixth place. Both Colpitts’ and Goodell’s marks are personal records.

On March 29 at the Stanford Invitational, graduate student Mareike Schrulle ran the 5,000 meters. Her time of 16:26.4 earned Schrulle a 16th-place finish in the second section of the race. Schrulle faced an extremely competitive field, and she will try to improve after having a rocky indoor season because of an injury.

Next on the schedule for the Hawkeyes is the Jim Click Invitational in Tempe, Ariz., on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
