4x800 Relay Breaks 7-Year Old Record By 10 Seconds At Patriot League Championships

The Loyola University Maryland 4x800-meter relay team broke a seven-year old school record by more than 10 seconds and scored points for the Greyhounds on the first day of the Patriot League Women's Track and Field Championships at Lehigh University.
Loyola's team of MaryEllen Woods, Audrey O'Neill, Kayleigh Caggiano and Cordelia McGinn ran 9:13.39 to shatter the standard of 9:23.74 set in 2010 at the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championships. The relay team finished sixth in the race and scored three points for the Greyhounds.
With limited scoring in the first day, Bucknell Unviersity leads the field with 72 points, while the host Mountain Hawks have 33 in second. The U.S. Naval Academy is third with 18, followed by College of the Holy Cross (10), the U.S. Military Academy (5), Boston University (7), Lafayette College (5) and the Greyhounds. American University and Colgate University did not score on the first of two days at the Championships.
In other action on Friday, Bre Mucius finished 15th in the preliminaries of the 100-meter hurdles, running the fourth-best time in school history (15.53). 
Three Greyhounds ran times that rank in the top-10 all-time at Loyola in the 100 meters. Ariana Santo Pietro was Loyola's top finisher in 17th with the fifth-best time (12.66), and Molly Johnson was a place behind in 12.75, tying her for the seventh-fastest time. Jordan Vine crossed the line in 12.82 to register 19th in the preliminary heats and tying for the 10th-best time at Loyola. 
Vine led the Loyola effort in the 200 meters, finishing 17th in the heats with a time of 25.98, the fifth-best time in school history.
Anne Lauder competed in the long jump for the Greyhounds, finishing 19th with a leap of 4.92 meters, the fifth-best mark in Loyola history.
