LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Lawrence University track and field star Josh Janusiak continued his assault on some of the school's oldest records on Thursday when he broke the mark in the 5,000 meters at the UW-La Crosse Qualifier.

Janusiak, who captured three individual Midwest Conference titles during the year, finished fourth in the event, and freshman teammate Joe Kortenhof took 11th in 15:42.99.

Freshman Noah Shea grabbed seventh in the 400 in 51.54, and teammate Mik Patel was 10th in 52.56.

On the women's side, Mikaela Hintz was 11th in the 400 in 1:02.46, and Brenna Ori was 10th in the long jump at 13 feet, 11.5 inches.
