The Bemidji State women’s track and field team spread out to see success at five meets in Minnesota and California April 17-19.
The Beavers set five new program records, met six Division II provisional qualifying marks and racked up 16 personal records.
Venice Stewart posted two school records, one in the 100-meter dash (11.88) and one in the 200-meter dash (24.19).
