The Charger women's track and field team split up this weekend with half traveling to Boston University and the other half making the trip to Grand Valley State University.
In Boston, the 4x400 meter relay proved to be an exciting prelude to the upcoming GLIAC Conference meet in two weeks, with freshman Fiona Shea, sophomore Allison Duber, juniors Emily Guy, and Corinne Zehner, who shattered Hillsdale's school record running a time of 3:48.17. Duber's individual time in the relay was an impressive 55.9 split.
The relays kept rolling in Boston, with the Distance Medley Relay breaking a school record with a time of 11:34.65.
Senior Amy Kerst ran the second best time of her career in the 800 meter dash with a time of 2:11.43.
Back in Grand Rapids at Grand Valley State, sophomore Dana Newell and freshman Rachel Tolsma both hit personal bests in the weight throw, as well as both hitting the provisional mark. Newell improved her distance to 55 feet and nine inches.
Freshman Amanda Reagle placed sixth overall in the mile at Grand Valley, showing promise in a young career with the Chargers, running a 5:09.16.
The Chargers next competition is at home, for the Hillsdale Tune- Up Meet on February 21st.
