That led the way for the Minot State men who also got a couple of other season-best performances, one from the quartet of Nathan Trujillo-Aragon, Juan Gutierrez, Peyton Tuhy, and Francis Short Bull who clocked the team’s fastest time this winter in the 4×400-meter relay of 3:33.46, good for 16th as well. The other season-best came from thrower Samuel Kreins in the shot put as he finished 11th in the event Saturday with an effort of 49 feet, 3.75 inches. While they led the men, it was Sidra Sadowsky and Emily Smith who turned in top performances for the Minot State women as Sadowsky ran the team’s best time this winter in the 800 meters, finishing 19th in 2:20.36, and Smith had the fastest 3,000-meter time for the Beavers as she was 32nd on Saturday in 10:55.98. Midway through the winter season, the Beavers get little time to rest before heading out to compete once again at a big NCAA Division I-packed meet as Minot State competes at the University of North Dakota Open next Saturday.
