Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

UNI Track and Field got outstanding performances from its multi-event athletes at the Drake Relays. Today the Panthers' Daniel Gooris produced a personal best 7624 to win the Decathlon by 300 points. Gooris is the sixth Panther in the last nine years to win the Drake Relays Decathlon.

The Panthers almost swept the multi-event competitions.  UNI's Olimpia Nowak rallied from a 190 point deficit to lose by just 25 points to former Iowa Hawkeye All-American Peaches Roach-Findlay who won with a score of 5709.  Nowak's 5686 broke the Panther school record of 5550 set by Dani Stipe in 2008. UNI freshman Paige Knodle also posted a personal best of 5280 for fifth place.
