There's no place like home for the Hillsdale College women's track team.

The nationally ranked squad flexed its muscle at the Hillsdale Invitational Saturday afternoon, taking home first places in a wide variety of events against competition that included athletes from Grand Valley State, Valparaiso and Ball State University, among others.

Leading the way for Hillsdale on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon filled with sun was junior captain Corinne Zehner (pictured), who won both hurdle races. Her time of 14.02 seconds was an NCAA provisional qualifying time in the 100 hurdles. She picked up a second provo time en route to winning the 400 hurdles in 1:00.65. Her 100 time puts her seventh in Division II.

Junior Emily Oren set a national standard in the 3000 meter steeplechase earlier in the season, but freshman teammate Amanda Reagle made a strong showing herself, winning the challenging race in 11:29.82.

Sophomore Molly Oren paced the field in the 5000 meter run, winning in 17:28.49. Sophomore Allison Duber broke the tape in the 400 meter dash in 56.77 seconds.

Senior Amy Kerst took second in the 800, while sophomore Dana Newell took second places in both the shot put and hammer throw events, Sophomore Alexandra Whitford was the runner-up in the pole vault as well.

Next weekend, Hillsdale's team splits up between Louisiana State and the Mt. SAC Relays in California.
