Indoor Track & Field

December 6, 2016 Sports Comments Off on Indoor Track & Field Posted By: Joanne Green

The Forester track and field teams opened up their indoor season over the weekend by taking a partial roster to Trine University’s Sean Brady Conditioner.

Undoubtedly one of the NAIA’s top high jumpers, Jake Nash already secured his spot at the 2017 NAIA Indoor Track and Field Championships with his leap of 2.09 meters which also earned him top honors at Saturday’s three-team meet.

Brooks Gerke also claimed a 1st place finish for the Foresters in pole vault with his mark of 4.27 meters. Kendall Adams took 2nd in the 400 meters by clocking in at 54.42. Zach Williams’ toss of 12.41 meters in shot put was good for 4th place.

For the Huntington women, Nicole Pennington started off the season with a bang by turning in two PRs. The junior speedster won the 60 meters in 8.14 in addition to logging the 4th fastest time in program history. She finished second in the 200 meters by clocking in at 27.69 which lands her the 10th spot in the HU history books.

Christiana Hicks claimed HU’s only other first place finish in triple jump with her mark of 10.34 meters.

Molly Mitchell earned a spot in the Forester record books by running the 7th fastest time in the 400 meters with her time of 1:02.87, good for 3rd place over the weekend. Michelle Kelsey took 3rd in high jump with a career-tying leap of 4-10. Jean Donaldson also brought home a 3rd place finish in weight throw with a PR toss of 13.99 meters.

December Alumni Spotlight

December 5, 2016 General Comments Off on December Alumni Spotlight Posted By: Career Services

Name: Krista Wood

Major: Nursing

Graduating year: 2016

Current career: Labor and Delivery Nurse at Flower Hospital

How did HU prepare you for your career journey?

HU challenged me to be the best student I could be, taught me how to invest in others, pushed me to grow in my faith and viewpoints, and prepared me for the world in front of me. The nursing professors invested in us as nursing students like no professors would have at any other university. They encouraged us to ask questions inside and outside the classroom, invited us into their homes for study sessions and hangouts, and honestly became like second moms to us all! The nursing department gave us the opportunity to work within multiple hospitals around the Fort Wayne area, helping refine our basic nursing skills while being exposed to different areas throughout the hospitals. Through these clinical experiences, many of us were able to narrow down the area in which we wanted to end up in but more importantly, we learned that despite the area you choose to be in, nursing is ultimately about caring for people with compassion expecting nothing in return, learning their stories, and treating them like you would treat your own loved one.

HU’s students, faculty, and staff invest in each other and the community of Huntington University is one to nothing. I met my best friends there, was sharpened in my faith, and guided to achieve an education that prepared me for the nursing world. I will forever be thankful for HU and all the people who help make it what it is.
