Ruth Steinke likely already had a bid to Nationals locked up, so she used the meet as an opportunity to stay sharp.

For his performance, Buckner was honored Wednesday with the final MIAC Men's Outdoor Field Athlete-of-the-Week award of the 2016 season.
Carleton College's Amelia Campbell continued her remarkable MIAC career with a stirring performance in the conference multi-event championships.
