Track and field
David Kemper broke the 14-year-old school record in the pole vault, while Desmond Steward uncorked a career-best leap in the triple jump and Rachel Ohde matched her season-best effort in the high jump at Friday’s St. Thomas Showcase in St. Paul, Minn.
Saint Mary’s earned three straight wins in their last three Friday night contests. On February 8 the Cardinals scored twice in the second period and once more in the third in dealing Hamline the same fate as Gustavus and Bethel the previous two weeks — an MIAC loss, this time a 3-1 decision at the Saint Mary’s Ice Arena.
Eli Cave put the Cardinal offense on his back, scoring a career-high 36 points as he ignited a 46-point second-half outburst in leading the team to an 86-69 conference win over the Scots at Leonard Center last Saturday afternoon.
The Saint Mary’s athletic department has joined forces with Under Armour and Universal Athletic in a five-year partnership to be the Cardinals’ official outfitter.
