Luckenbach Breaks School, Stadium and Meet Records in the Hammer

At the 39th Annual Pelluer Invitational, Eagles obtain nine more qualifying marks for the BSC Championships


Nicole Luckenbach broke her own school, meet and Woodward Field records as the Eastern Washington University track and field team competed at the 39th Annual Pelluer Invitational in Cheney, Wash., on April 9.

On her first throw, Luckenbach broke her own school, meet and stadium record in the hammer with a winning throw of 193-0. She broke her own school record that she set last year at the Big Sky Conference Championships with a mark of 191-11. The previous Pelluer record was set by Gabby Midles in 2009 with a throw of 185-11 and the old Woodward Field record of 183-7 was set by Ashley Jones of Montana State in 2006.

Shene Davis won the triple jump with a mark of 38-6 3/4 to qualify for the BSC Championships in Ogden, Utah, on May 12-15. That jump ranks her third in school history behind the mark of 38-9 3/4 set by Candice Nell in 2007 and the school-record mark of 39-7 set in 2005 by Teanna Meinhold.
