FINDLAY, Ohio — Led by first-year head coach Cary Ossiff, the women’s indoor track & field team made the trip to Findlay, Ohio Saturday (Jan. 24) to take part in the Findlay Classic. The event marked the second of the season for Ossiff and the Mustangs as the new head coach continues to build a strong foundation behind a trio of throwers.
Kassadie Dewdney-Sims (Waterford, Mich./Mott High School) once again led the way for the Mustangs with a toss of 9.78m. The finals throw was well off Dewdney-Sims’ season-opening fifth-place toss of 10.27m last week at the SVSU Classic. The sophomore would haveÂ chimed in justÂ shy of 10th place in Saturday’s loaded field at the Findlay Classic by matchingÂ her toss from last week.
The 9.78m throw placed Dewdney-Sims 16th in a field of 26 competitors from the NCAA Division II, III and NAIA levels.
Coming in right behind Dewdney-Sims was senior Rachel Staudt (Novi, Mich./Lawrence Tech) with a 9.36m toss. Younger sister Amber Staudt (Novi, Mich./Schoolcraft College) tossed out a 8.58m throw to follow Rachel’s performance. The throws placed the Staudt sisters in 17th and 21st place, respectively, as the pair begin to settle in to the collegiate indoor scene.
The youngest of three on the team, [Amber] Staudt was the lone Mustang to improve her distance from last week’s SVSU Classic. The sophomore transfer surpassed last week’s mark by a narrow .03m, showcasing signs of steady improvement early in the season.
Coach Ossiff and the Mustangs return to where it all started Saturday (Jan. 31) when they visit SVSU University for the 2015 Jet’s Pizza Invitational.Â
