ATLANTA, Ga. - Participating in their first outdoor meet of the 2012 season, the Concordia University Wisconsin men's and women's track & field teams competed at the Emory Invitational this weekend on the campus of Emory University.

The Falcons got solid contributions from a number of athletes, beginning with senior Alex Pawlak (Colgate, Wis.) who picked up right where he left off after a stellar indoor season, breaking the CUW record in the 110m High Hurdles with a time of 14.87 seconds. Pawlak also set the new school record in the 400m Hurdles, setting a PR of almost one second.

Freshman Troy Anderson (Burlington, Wis.) also had a solid meet, setting a huge PR in the long jump with a score of 6.35 meters, while freshman Matthew Sheafer (Fort Wayne, Ind.) set a personal record in the 5k.

On the women's side, freshman Caitlyn Stern (Mequon, Wis.) set a personal best in the 1500m Run, sophomore Jessica Hennig (Springfield, Ill.) set a PR in the 200m Dash, and sophomore Kelsey Wagner (Kenosha, Wis.) ran a personal best in the 800m Run.

Next up for the Falcons is the Ted Hayden Invitational next Saturday, which will take place on the University of Chicago campus.
