Sieve concludes collegiate track and field career with All-American honors

Greta Sieve ’10 earned another entry in the St. Kate’s athletic history books at the national track field championships May 27-29.

Competing for the final time as a St. Kate's student-athlete at the NCAA National Championships, Greta Sieve ’10 finished 7th in the 3000 meter steeplechase and 11th in the 5000 meter run. The championships were held at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, OH, May 27-29.

With her seventh place finish in the steeplechase, Sieve became the first Wildcats track athlete to earn NCAA Division III All-American honors in St. Catherine University history. The top eight finishers earn all-American honors.

Despite the warm temperatures, Sieve’s time in the 5000 meter run, 17:38.75, was the second highest time in St. Kate's track and field history and trailed only her own school record set earlier in the season.

Sieve ends her illustrious career with eight individual school records, two relay records, six Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) All-Conference awards, five all-conference honorable mention awards, three trips to the national championships and one all-American award.
