Freshman Throwers Pace AU Effort At Ohio State


Three members of Ashland University's "Fab Five" did some showing off on Friday (Feb. 15) at the Ohio State Buckeye Tune Up.

In the next-to-last competition of the regular season, a trio of female redshirt freshman throwers turned in noteworthy efforts in Columbus. Two of those – Carrol Pauley and Elizabeth Weimer – moved up the provisional list for NCAA Division II indoor nationals, March 8-9 at Pittsburg State (Kan.).

At the Division I-dominated meet, Pauley was seventh in the women's weight throw with a top mark of 17.39 meters, while Weimer was 11th in the women's shot put at 13.85 meters/45-feet-5¼.

Lindsay Baker, already assured of being at nationals in the women's shot put, finished second in the event on Friday at 16.47 meters/54-feet-0½.

Ashland's men, ranked No. 2 in the nation, and women, ranked No. 9, will finish up the regular season on Saturday (Feb. 16) at the Kent State Tune-Up. The 2019 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Indoor Championships will be Feb. 23-24 at Saginaw Valley State.
