Redhawk Track and Field Dominates Postseason OVC Indoor Awards

Feb. 24, 2005

The Southeast Redhawks took home five of the six postseason 2005 OVC indoor track and field awards, voted on by the league's head coaches. Brooke Woodruff was named the OVC Female Athlete of the Year, Miles Smith was named the Male Athlete of the Year, Kathy Coleman was named Female Field Athlete of the Year, and Brian Knippen was named Male Field Athlete of the Year. Coleman was also awarded OVC Female Freshman of the Year.

Junior Brooke Woodruff, a middle distance runner, will be looking to win her third straight OVC 800-meter indoor title this weekend at the Indoor Conference Championships held at Eastern Illinois University. The St. Charles native holds the top 800-meter time in the OVC this season with a time of 2:08.71. This mark provisionally qualifies her for the NCAA Championships in early March. Woodruff also has the third-best mile time in the Conference this year with a 5:08.54.


Miles Smith, a sophomore sprinter, has made headlines with his new school records in the 200 (21.42) and 400-meter dash (46.61) this season. He has provisionallly qualified in the 400 and is also a member of the 4X400-meter relay team that has provisionally qualified as well. He ranks first in the OVC in the 400-meter dash and is second in the 200.

Brian Knippen is making a name for himself at Southeast since transfering from Murray State for his senior year. He ranks first in the OVC this season in the shot put with a throw of 55'07.25". While at Murray State, a fellow Conference member, he took home the OVC weight throw title in 2003.

Kathy Coleman has been a tremendous addition to the Redhawk women's team. She is a freshman jumper and runner, and ranks among the league's best in several categories this season. She holds the top spot in the 55-meters (7.04), the long jump (20'02"), and the triple jump (40'01.50"). She is ranked second in the 55-meter hurdles with a time of 8.21. In addition to provisionally qualifying for the NCAA Championships in the long jump, Coleman set a new school record in the triple jump at her first meet of the season.
