WAUKESHA, Wis. – Junior Nicole Larson made a very strong first impression for the Concordia University Wisconsin Women's Track & Field team this past week. The junior transfer wrapped up the week by being named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Indoor Track & Field Student-Athlete of the Week, the league announced Monday.
Larson (Milwaukee, Wis.) cleared 3.50 meters in the pole vault at the Illinois Wesleyan First Chance Meet Saturday. That mark was not only good enough for a first-place finish in the 15-competitor field, but also set both the NACC and CUW records.
The previous CUW indoor record was 3.15 meters, while the previous NACC record was 3.44 meters.
Larson and the Falcons will next compete at the Wisconsin Private College Invitational January 16. The meet his hosted by Carthage.
