MACON, Ga. (Jan. 14, 2009) - After a long break, the ETSU track team had a great showing opening its 2009 season at the Clemson Invitational.  Senior Heidi Dahl (Provo, Utah) took the crown as she finished 10 seconds faster than the field of 25 women in the 800-meter run earning her the Atlantic Sun's first Athlete of the Week of 2009.

 

The Provo, Utah native claimed the title in the 800 with a blazing time of 2:10.80, 14 seconds better than her conference opponents. The BYU transfer made her ETSU debut with a 10th place finish in the 300-meter run Friday night in Clemson, S.C.

 

The Bucs will be back in action next weekend when they make their second trip over the mountain to Boone. ETSU will compete in the ASU Limited Open on Saturday.
