4x400 Relay Sets School Record At ECAC Championships
BOSTON - Loyola University Maryland's 4x400-meter relay team set a school record and finished sixth overall Sunday on the final day of of the ECAC Indoor Track & Field Championships. Cordelia McGinn concluded her indoor career with the Greyhounds' best-ever individual finish at the meet.
McGinn took fourth in the 800 meters, running the second-fastest time in school history (2:10.65). She was just over a second behind the race's winner, the University of Connecticut's Susan Aneno, and her time was slightly off the school record of 2:08.25 she set in Saturday's preliminaries.
Her fourth-place finish is the best by a Loyola woman at the ECAC Championships, just in front of Jackie D'Antonio's sixth in the 2013 1,000 meters.
The mile relay team of Molly Johnson, Molly Smith, Senna Ohlsson and Courtney Kenny ran 3:48.20 to become the first quartet to run under 3:50 in school history. On Saturday night, Rachel Koller, Smith, Johnson and Kenny ran 3:50.40 for a school record, but Sunday's performance topped that.
Ohlsson also was an individual scorer for the Greyhounds, taking seventh in 1:14.11, making it the first time Loyola has had more than one individual score points at the ECAC Championships. Ohlsson held off Boston College's Julia Barron for seventh.
The Greyhounds open their outdoor season on March 17 at the Maryland Invitational.
