FARGO, N.D. -- A pair of senior runners won their respective event titles today to lead the Fighting Sioux at North Dakota State.

Senior Emily Emerson (Lino Lakes, Minn.) won the 800-meters, clocking a time of 2:15.35 for a 4-second win over runner-up Laura Lawton of South Dakota State.

Teammates Kahla Erickson (So., Grand Rapids, Minn.), Savana Weller (So., Sauk Centre, Minn.) and Victoria Lutz (So., Park Rapids, Minn.) placed 3-4-5, respectively, in the event.

Emerson wasn't the only Sioux senior to capture an event title. Lindsay Anderson (Leeds, N.D.) placed first in the 1,500-meters with a time of 4:30.35.
