#CUWStatsInfo: Track & Field NACC Indoor Championships preview

Below are some numbers and statistics on the upcoming NACC Championships about various Falcon athletes.

Men's:

3 – Senior distance runner Martin Hinze (Bourbannais, Ill.) enters the meet with the top time in the conference in three events. Hinze has posted the best time in the mile, 3,000-meter and 5,000-meter. Expect to see him in the mile for sure this weekend and probably another event as well. Last season Hinze ran in the 800-meter, one mile run and 3,000-meter run at the indoor meet. He won the mile and placed second in the 3,000-meter run, while finishing sixth in the 800.

3 – CUW has won three of the past five Men's Championships and is one of only three schools to win the NACC Indoor title. Defending champion Aurora University and MSOE each have two championships.

3.95 – Junior Josh Lehr (Appleton, Wis.) is ranked second in the pole vault in the NACC entering the weekend. Lehr cleared 3.95 meters last weekend at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Tune-Up meet, while his teammate, sophomore Bathong Pham (Milwaukee, Wis.) cleared 3.65 meters and ranks seventh in the event.

5,000 – The Falcons not only have Hinze on top of the 5,000-meter rankings, but also have junior Andrew Coop (Mora, Minn.) with the second fastest time in the NACC. Coop ran a 15:40.83 at the Keck Invitational back on February 8, while Hinze posted a 15:38.77 at the Tadd Matzger Invitational on January 31.

Women's:

3 – Just like the CUW Men's team, the Women's squad has won more NACC Indoor Championships than any other school. The Falcons won the first three titles (2007-2009), while Aurora and Concordia University Chicago each have two titles.

4 – Junior Emily Mauermann (Janesville, Wis.) ranks inside the top six in four events heading into the weekend. She has posted the fourth best time in both the 200 (27:17) and 800-meter (2:27.50), while ranking fifth in the 400-meter dash (1:01.95). She also is sixth in the long jump, recording a leap of 4.88 meters last weekend at the UW-Milwaukee meet. Mauermann placed second at last year's indoor championships in the 200, 400 and high jump.

11.36 – The Falcons best event on the Women's side may be in the shot put where CUW has two of the top five ranked athletes. Junior Andrea Kassees (Waukesha, Wis.) has posted the second best throw, while sophomore Karli Tatum (Milwaukee, Wis.) has the fifth top throw. Kassees recorded a toss of 11.36 meters on February 8, while Tatum posted her 11-meter throw on February 15.

13.45 – Kassees also ranks highly in the weight throw as she is third at 13.45 meters. The Falcons enter with four of the top nine throws, Tatum ranking seventh at 12 meters. Junior Mary Heinz (Cedarburg, Wis.) and freshman Coleen Sauvey (De Pere, Wis.) rank eighth and ninth in the event.
