Four Falcons Impact Record Book at Husky Classic

Feb. 11, 2012

SEATTLE, Wash. - Seniors Jim Walmsley and Alex Zubey clocked the fourth- and fifth-fastest mile times in Academy history, as seven members of the Air Force track and field team concluded competition at the Flotrack Husky Classic on Saturday, Feb. 11, in Seattle, Wash.

Walmsley shaved nine seconds off of his personal-best time to place third in the 83-runner race with a time of 4:04.25. The senior, who moved into fourth on the program's all-time list, now leads the Mountain West in that event this season. Zubey crossed the finish line right behind Walmsley, placing fourth in 4:04.56. That time, a six-second personal improvement, is the fifth-fastest time in Academy history and the second-best time in the conference this season.

The Falcon milers were two of four Falcons to impact the Academy record book at the Husky Classic.

Sophomore Alex Lindsay moved into 10th on the program's all-time list in the 800-meter run, behind a time of 1:51.66. Lindsay, who cleared two seconds off of his previous best time, finished sixth in the 48-runner race.

Classmate Annette Eichenberger moved into ninth on the women's 800-meter list, clocking a career-best time of 2:15.04. The sophomore finished 37th in the 60-runner race, while junior Morgan Mosby, who already holds the second-fastest time in that event, posted a time of 2:14.39 to place 31st in her first race of the season at that distance.

In addition, sophomore Matt Caldwell placed 39th with a time of 4:10.35. Junior Melissa Fuerst competed in the women's 3000-meter run, but her competition heat is not yet available.

The Falcons return to action next Friday (Feb. 17), when they travel to Laramie, Wyo., for the annual Robert Shine Invitational.
