It didn't take long for Ashland University senior Jamie Sindelar to put her stamp on the 2015-16 indoor track and field season.

Not only did Sindelar win the Tiffin Alumni Open women's shot put title on Saturday (Dec. 5), turning in the best Division II distance of the young season in the process, but she also is the first Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Women's Field Athlete of the Week for the new campaign.

Sindelar's winning distance on Saturday was 16.25m/53-feet-3.75, giving her automatic qualification for the 2016 Division II indoor national championships, March 11-12 in Pittsburg, Kan. After just one weekend of action, that distance is 1.23m/4-feet-0.25 better than the second-best distance in the country.

The Eagles will conclude the first semester at the Kent State Golden Flash Gala on Friday (Dec. 11) and Saturday (Dec. 12).
