Arellano wins second NSAA honor
University of Jamestown senior Kaiann Arellano was named North Star Athletic Association women's indoor track athlete of the week for a second straight week Tuesday.
Arellano hit three provisional qualifying marks at the Dakota Wesleyan Open. Her preliminary 60-meter hurdles race (9.2 seconds), her winning high jump mark (1.65 meters) and her part in the first-place winning 1600-meter relay (4:01.86) all met the national qualifying standard.
Arellano currently sits fourth nationally in the pentathlon, 12th in the high jump and 22nd in the 60 hurdles. Jamestown's 1600 relay team of Kylee Voight, Hannah Christenson, Arellano and Emily Stier is ranked ninth in the NAIA.
