Kotarak, Heineck Compete at Gregory Invite

NAPERVILLE, Illinois – Sophomore Jerica Kotarak posted a pair of top-three finishes and sophomore Maia Heineck had one of her own in the javelin for the MSOE women's track & field team at the Gregory Invitational Wednesday and Thursday at North Central College.

The duo represented the only two Raiders to compete at the last chance qualifier.

Kotarak was runner-up in the long jump, leaping 18-4 1/2. She also went 37-5 in the triple jump to take third.

Heineck threw 108-1 in the javelin to place third as well.

This was the final regular season meet on the MSOE schedule. The only meet that remains is the NCAA Championship, in which Kotarak is likely to qualify for. She currently sits tied for seventh in the long jump and 24th in the triple jump. She has qualified for every national meet in both events during her collegiate career.
