Beaver Fever Friday – Track – Tierra Doss and Dynia Lewis

BSU Track & Field head to Aberdeen, S.D., for NSIC Championships

Bemidji State University outdoor track & field makes its way to Aberdeen, S.D., May 12-14 for the 2022 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Events begin Thursday with the heptathlon followed by the full slate of track and field events Friday and Saturday at Al Sahli Track on the campus of Northern State University.

All-Conference performers will consist of the top three place winners in each event and the members of the top two relay teams from the NSIC Outdoor Track & Field Championship meet.

Bemidji State University outdoor track & field’s late season records continued to fall last week at the Ron Masanz Classic and the Deb Schulz Open. The Beavers saw three program records broken between both meets, including records set by senior Analise Fabre in the triple jump over each of the past three meets.

Fabre broke the program’s triple jump record for the third straight meet. She topped her previous mark by nearly one foot with a leap of 38-08.25 to take sixth in the event Friday. Fabre now holds five of the top six triple jump marks and seven of the top 10 in BSU history. Fabre won the triple jump event at the Masanz Classic and now holds seven of BSU’s top 10 marks in the triple jump outdoors.

Junior thrower Tierra Doss brought home BSU’s lone event win of the day while breaking a nearly 10-year-old BSU record in the discus. Doss recorded a mark of 147-feet-11-inches to win the event and break the previous BSU record by over three feet, which was previously set by Jessica Cagle in 2013.

Freshman hurdler Dynia Lewis also broke a BSU record set in 2013 as she took third in the 100m hurdles in the finals. Lewis opened her day with a fourth-place time of 14.47 in the preliminary round, which ranks tied for fourth at BSU all-time, to qualify for the finals. In the finals, Lewis ran a time of 14.32 to beat Ashley Larva’s previous BSU record by 0.09 seconds. Lewis also won the 100m hurdles at the Masanz Classic with the now third-best time in program history.

Junior Anastasia Klein took second in the pole vault at the Masanz Classic with a mark of 11-3.75, which ranks fourth-best all-time at BSU. The leap is the best of her three top 10 marks for BSU in the event.

Sophomore Alaina Hall also put herself among the top 10 in BSU history in the 100m dash for the third time in her career. She won the 100m dash at the Masanz Classic with a time of 12.11, just 0.13 shy of her personal record.
