Track and Field Races at Invitational and Patriot Games
Jan. 26, 2013
Fairfax, Va. - The Loyola University Maryland Track and Field team had a busy weekend competing in both the Penn State National and George Mason Patriot Games.
"George Mason's flat track gives our team a great experience," said head coach Amy Horst. "We like to go and compete against teams that we don't normally see, it really challenges us and makes us work. "
The Greyhound sprinters were youthful, but finished well in Virginia. Freshman Jeanine Gill finished in the top 25 of the 200-meter dash. Of the 65 competitors, Gill crossed the line with a time of 26.81. Classmate Rebekah Roberson clocked a time of 27.85, while Eileen Pastyrnak finished 28.61, and Courtney Willeford represented Loyola at 28.87.
Lisa Potter was five-tenths of a second off the program record in the 500m dash, finishing with a time of 1:21.89.
Earlier in the day, Maguire and Pappas led the Greyhounds to a sixth place finish in the 4x800 meter relay. The middle legs of Kellyanne Bondulich and Alyssa Dorney helped Loyola to a time of 9:53.35.
Meanwhile in University Park, Pa., Kiera Harrison finished fourteenth in the 5k, running 17:52.99 Friday evening. Jackie D'Antonio competed in her first mile race, running in 5:05.89, and coming in twelfth for the Greyhounds.
"We've got a lot of work to do before the MAAC (Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) Championships, but we know what to work on now and it's all part of the plan to improve and prepare as we look forward to what we can put together come mid-February," Horst said.
Next week, the team splits for three separate meets in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and New York; starting with the Meyo Invite and New Balance Collegiate Invitational Friday, February 1.
