Baltimore, Md. - Senior Andrea Rovegno led the Loyola women's track team to three school records at the Maryland Invitational on Saturday afternoon. Rovegno, who placed second it the mile run, set an indoor record in the 800-meter race with a time of 2:21.95.
Rovegno, who raced for the first time this indoor season, was two seconds behind Maryland's Lindsay Ritchings in the Mile to place second overall. Sophomore Maureen Wynne, who ran a personal best 5:16.10 in the event, placed eighth overall to give Loyola a pair of Top-10 finishers in the race.
"Both our veterans and our younger runners had a terrific day," says Head Coach Brett Harvey. "I'm really proud of the way they competed."
The youth Coach Harvey eluded to included freshmen Ashley Kennedy and Eve Mizerak, who each re-set school records they previously held. Kennedy ran a 9.60 in the 60-meter high hurdles while Mizerak posted a time of 28.16 in the 200-meters.
The Greyhounds, who ran with a full squad on Saturday, will compete in the Patriot Games next Saturday in Fairfax, Va.
