Track & Field Completes Action at Wisconsin Shell Shocker

Feb. 16, 2018

MADISON, Wis. - The Marquette University men's and women's track and field teams completed its final tune-up before the BIG EAST indoor championships after a successful night at the Wisconsin Shell Shocker on Friday.

The Golden Eagles combined for 14 personal-bests, including seven all-time list marks in Madison.

"A very successful meet for us and a good tune-up for BIG EAST," Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. "Throws have kind of been building toward this after having last week off and have been training really well. We rested a few people - some big names for us - to get ready for BIG EAST. I think we accomplished all that we sought out to do."



  • After a week off for rest, Maya Marion responded with another big day by turning in a couple personal-bests and all-time marks. Her third-place finish in the shot put was good for No. 2 all-time and fell just 9 centimeters shy of the school record. She also set the No. 6 mark all-time in the weight throw, right behind Keely Knobbe, who set the No. 3 mark all-time.
  • Kelsey Hunn ran to a personal-best and the No. 7 mark all-time in the 60 hurdles.
  • On the men's side, Terrance Howard (No. 4 all-time) and Brendan McKinney (No. 5 all-time) turned in big marks in the weight throw. Peter's first-place finish in the 60 hurdles was also the No. 4 mark all-time.


  • Marquette now enters its final week of training before the BIG EAST indoor championships where the men seek their first team title and the women aim for their third-straight. The meet will take place at the Ocean Breeze Track & Field Facility in Staten Island, N.Y. and is scheduled for Friday-Saturday, Feb. 23-24.
