Sophomore Markine Voker got the school record for the women’s 300m dash, finishing in 41.54 seconds. She also raced to a career-best of 7.89 seconds in the 60m.

Other men’s highlights included Kyle Moser and Anthony Clavette each taking third place in their respective events. Moser threw 15.09m in the shotput while Clavette was able to clear 1.97 in the high jump. Matthew Konopinski and Cole Cayer finished second and third place in the 3K race, recording times of just over nine minutes a piece.

Other women’s highlights included Haleemot Adeyanju raced to a second-place finish in the 500m dash, clocking in at a minute and eighteen seconds. Hailey Marcello finished the 1000m in two minutes and fifty-eight seconds, racing to the third fastest time in school history.
