Ewing, N.J. - Senior Carolyn Kennington and sophomore Maureen Wynne each won individual events for Loyola in a final women's track tune-up for the MAAC Championships. The Greyhounds also set a school record in Saturday's success competition at Lions Invitational in Ewing, N.J.
Kennington won the javelin competition with a throw of 123 feet, while Wynne captured the 1500-meter run with a personal best time of 4:52.67. Wynne's time is also Loyola's third-best in its three-year history.
In the sprints, Thomas, Mizerak and McDonald all ran sub-27 second times in the 200m Thomas crossed the finish line in 26.74, edging out Mizerak in 26.78.
"We finally got some nice weather and it showed," says Loyola Head Coach Brett Harvey. "It was good to see Carolyn [Kennington] and Maureen [Wynne] get wins in their events and hopefully it will give them confidence going into the MAAC Championships."
The Greyhounds will compete at the MAAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Saturday at Lawrenceville, N.J.
