Provided by Hillsdale
The ninth-ranked Hillsdale College women's track team is moving in the right direction as the heart of the indoor track season approaches.
The Charges accumulated five NCAA provisional marks at this weekend's Wide Track Classic, hosted by Hillsdale Colleeg at the Margot V. Biermann Athletic Center.
Junior Emily Oren led the way, breaking the old meet record in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:13.47. Her time was good for second place in this year's race.
Chargers went first and third in the 400 meter championship, led by junior Corinne Zehner. She provo'd with a time of 57.7, winning the race. Sophomore Allison Duber wasn't far behind, recording a 58.28.
Zenher also placed fourth overall in the 60 meter hurdles with a time of 8.83 seconds, just a half-second off her school record time in that event.
One of the Chargers' signature events, the distance medley relay, lived up to its lofty reputation with a first-place time of 12:02.74. That provo time was earned by the foursome of Emily Oren, Amy Kerst, Kate Royer and Kristina Galat.
Fiona Shea earned a provo mark in the 200, finishing third with a time of 25.4 seconds.
Several field event athletes did well, led by sophomore Sarah Benson, who took second in the long jump with a leap of 18 feet, 1/4 inch. Sophomore Alex Whitford (pictured) took third in the pole vault with a mark of 12 feet, 3 1/2 inches. Sophomore Madison Estell was sixth in the triple jump at 35 feet, 10 1/2 inches.
