Women's Track Sets Three School Records at Princeton Invitational

Dec. 8, 2007

Princeton, N.J. - The Loyola women's track and field team set three school records and registered a number of impressive finishes at Princeton's New Year Invitational on Saturday at Jadwin Gym.

Among the impressive finishes were two runner-up performances in the distance events. Senior Andrea Rovegno and freshman Lindsay Wilson each took second in exciting races for the Greyhounds.

Wilson's runner-up finish came in the Mile, where she posted a time of 5:21. Wilson pushed the pace and came within three-tenths of a second of first, being edged out by a Rutgers runner in the event.

Rovegno's second-place finish came in the 3,000-meters, where she ran a solid time of 10:07. Rovegno set the pace in the race, and led for most of the way. A great finish down the stretch, however, had Rovegno come up just short of the win.

"Lindsay and Andrea ran great races for us today," said Head Coach Brett Harvey. "They looked good for this early in the season."

Among Loyola's school record performances was sophomore Kim Amaducci, who re-set her own mark in the high jump. Amaducci cleared 5.25 feet and had a good look at 5.375.

Back on the track, senior Caroline Scott set a Loyola record in the 500-meter race. Scott posted a time of 1:21.84, one second ahead of freshman teammate Megan Harpe, who would have broken the old Loyola mark in the event if it weren't for Scott's time.

Junior Brittany McDonald also set a school record with her finish in the 300-meters. McDonald ran a 45.34 in the race. Other top performances for the Greyhounds included junior Maureen Wynne's fourth-place showing in the 3,000-meters. Wynne crossed the finish line in 10:44.6.

"We competed well," said Coach Harvey. "This meet was not about times or finishes, but about setting the stage for the indoor season. I think we took a big step forward today and am exciting about what the new year will bring."

The Greyhounds resume competition after the semester break at the Gulden Relays in Lewisburg, Pa. on Saturday, January 12.
