The UNK indoor track team completed another great season this year with top three finishes in the conference tournament and five athletes qualifying for nationals.  

“The team had a very good season,” said Brady Bonsall, head cross country and co-head track coach. “The most successful part of the track season was having five individuals qualify for nationals and that we are very competitive in the 200 and 300-meter runs,” Bonsall said.  

The team set some big goals as a team and as individuals Bonsall said, “Our goal this season was to win the conference tournament and have as many individuals as possible to go to nationals.”

At the conference tournament on Feb. 25 and 26, the women’s team placed second  and one woman, Sam Murphy, qualified for nationals. Murphy a senior criminal justice major from Franklin, qualified in throws.  The men’s team got third at the conference and had four individuals qualify for nationals. Spencer Huff a senior construction management major from York, qualified in the long jump as did Marty Molina a freshmen social work major from Kearney.  The other two men to qualify were Dane Toby, a junior health and physical health major from Waco, for shot put and Rich Mourer, a senior construction management major from Springfield, Co. for weight throw.  

These Lopers will be competing in the national tournament on March 12 and 13 in Albuquerque, N.M..
