CHARLESTON, Ill. — The Western Michigan track and field team won five events at the Eastern Illinois University Twilight Meet on Friday night, in its final meet ahead of next weekend’s Mid-American Conference Championship.
WMU claimed wins in the 200-meter dash, 4×100-meter relay, 4×400-meter relay, pole vault, and the triple jump. Leading the way was senior Kirstie Wieber after breaking her own program record in the outdoor pole vault. Wieber reached a height of 3.84m (12′ 7.25″) to break her previous mark of 3.82m (12′ 6.25″) set at the GVSU Last Chance Meet last May. She also automatically qualified for the MAC Championships after eclipsing the standard of 3.75m.
