EWING, N.J. - The Loyola University Maryland women's track and field team ended the regular season with four program records, and a number of PRs at the Lions Invitational, on Saturday afternoon.
For the third time this season, Jacqueline Porter broke her own record, as well as the school record while competing in the 400m hurdles. The junior hurdler came across the finish line with a time of 1:03.89, which was good enough for a third place finish.
Freshman jumper, Emma Mascoli left her mark not only in the sand pit, but also in the Loyola record books, as she recorded a triple jump distance of 10.33m. Marci Baileys held the previous record in 2010, with a jump of 10.28m.
For the second time this season Uchechukwu Emili left her mark for the Greyhounds in the throws. The New York native broke her previous shot put program record of 10.86m, tabbing a personal best 10.94m and an 11th place finish in the final regular season event.
On top of the four program records, nine Greyhounds recorded personal bests before gearing up for the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships next weekend.
Anna Bosse had the highest individual finish for Loyola, finishing second in the 3,000m steeplechase, with a personal-best 11:18.75.
On the field, Emili set her second PR of the afternoon in the discus event, with a distance of 31.53m. Alyssa Harrison also had a PR in the high jump, finishing third with 1.61m.
The Greyhounds are next at the MAAC Championships hosted by Rider University in Lawrenceville, N.J., on May 4th and 5th.
