Betsy Saina and Dani Stack both qualified for the championships in the 3000-meter run. Saina had a time of 9:06.61 and Stack with a 9:08.00.

Saina’s time is currently the fastest 3000-meter time this year nationally.

Kianna Elahi snapped a Bill Bergan Invitational record in the 400-meter dash with a time of 54.62, which is also her personal record. This is her third record-setting time in just two meets.

Other notables in the meet were men’s sprinter Ian Warner, who claimed two titles in the 60- and 200-meter dashes.

The Bill Bergan Invitational winners for the men’s side was Minnesota with 62 points. The ISU men finished fourth with 45.5 points.

On the women’s side, Wisconsin came out on top with 71 points. The ISU women finished fourth as well with 42 points.

Both teams head out to the East Coast for the New Balance Invitational in New York City next weekend.
