YANKTON-Dakota Wesleyan University junior Kamber Lamer was named the outstanding female athlete at the Great Plains Athletic Conference Track and Field Championships on Saturday after setting a conference record in the heptathlon.
Lamer recorded 5,017 points to win the event, shattering the previous record of 4,808, set by Doane's Kylie Gokie in 2016. She won the javelin throw (124 feet, 3 inches) and the long jump (17 feet, 11 1/2 inches), while taking second in the triple jump (38 feet, 7 3/4 inches).
Lamer's leap in the long jump was a new GPAC record, as was her time in the 100-meter hurdles on Friday. She accounted for 32 of the DWU women's 57 points as the team placed sixth. Concordia won with 200 points.
Tyson Jenkins placed second in the men's shot put with a heave of 54-5.25, while Gregory native Michael Campbell was third at 54 feet. Calob Jones (48-7.5) and Caden Milmine (47-7.75) were eighth and ninth, respectively. Campbell was also fourth in the discus (160-4) and Jenkins was fifth in the hammer throw (183-4).
The DWU men placed ninth out of 11 teams, while Doane won the men's team title with 192 points.
