Barber, Vince claim MIAA awards

Track & field student-athletes Kimberly Barber and Cassie Vince represent Albion College among the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Athletes of the Week for Jan. 28.

Barber, a senior from Gobles, Mich., achieved a school record to win the triple jump (35' 10 ¾") competition and ran on the 4x200 and 4x400-meter relay teams during the Dr. William Taraschke Team Challenge in Berea, Ohio, last Saturday.

Vince, a senior from Amherst, Ohio, owns the second-fastest time by a Division III woman at this point of the season and the school record in the mile run. She completed her race in 4:54.84 to finish six seconds ahead of her nearest competitor.

Albion's next meet is the Indiana Wesleyan University Midwest Classic on Feb. 2.
