Track & Field, Lauren Wrensch

Rhyme and University Books & More are pleased to announce that Lauren Wrensch (Sr. • Waukesha) of the track & field team has been chosen as the UW-Oshkosh Female Student-Athlete of the Week for the period of Feb. 11-17.

Wrensch leaped to a nation-leading measurement in the long jump and sprinted to the sixth-best 200-meter dash in the country at the UW-Oshkosh Titan Challenge held Feb. 16 in Kolf Sports Center.

Wrensch won both events as UW-Oshkosh recorded eight top-eight finishes to place fifth in the team standings with 42.5 points.

Wrensch defeated 41 other contestants in the long jump with her school-record distance of 19-4 3/4. Wrensch, who now leads the list of qualifying performances for next month's NCAA Division III Championship in Boston, Mass., surpassed her own school record of 19-3 1/4 set at the UW-Oshkosh Early Bird Invitational earlier this season.

In the 200-meter dash, Wrensch ran to a winning time of 25.32 seconds against 64 other competitors. Her converted time of 24.94 seconds ranks sixth nationally and just six-tenths of a second behind the nation's leading sprint of 24.34 by George Fox University's (Ore.) Sarah King.

Wrensch also helped UW-Oshkosh's 1,600-meter relay team register the 10th-fastest time in the country. Wrensch, along with Lindsay Denu, Alexandra Demco and Taylor Pralle, posted a third-place time of 3:58.07 (3:54.96 converted) in a race that featured 13 relay squads.

UW-Eau Claire won the 14-team Titan Challenge with 141 points while UW-Stout finished second with 68.5, UW-Whitewater third with 45, NCAA Division II Northern Michigan University fourth with 44 and Carthage College sixth with 38.

Each week throughout the 2018-19 school year, one male and one female UW-Oshkosh student-athlete are recognized for their accomplishments from the previous week. The award winners will be announced on the UW-Oshkosh athletics website every Monday afternoon.
