SPU women win yet another GNAC indoor title...

It was a record-setting day -- and yet another indoor track title -- for Seattle Pacific’s women on Saturday.

Jane Larson set a meet record in the 5,000 meters, Ali Worthen did likewise in the high jump, and Latasha Essien three-peated in the 60-meter dash, leading SPU to its sixth consecutive Great Northwest Athletic Conference championship.

The Falcons, who have won every GNAC indoor crown since the conference began offering indoor track in 2004, racked up 181 points. Western Washington, expected to give Seattle Pacific a run for it, was second with 137_.

“Every championship is different. But this one, it was fun to see some different faces who haven’t contributed in the past or who were brand-new to the team and who carried some serious loads,” Falcons coach Karl Lerum said. “They just performed great. We had a team performance.”

For her efforts over the weekend, SPU freshman Ali Worthen was named GNAC co-athlete of the week after winning both the long jump and high jump, and scoring 38 points for the Falcons at the conference meet.
