PRINCETON, N.J. - The Bryn Mawr track and field team sent a group of Owls to Princeton earlier Friday night to take part in the New Year's Invitational. Despite only sending a handful of athletes to compete in the event, it was still a highly successful outing for Bryn Mawr, as the team earned one event win and set two personal records on the day.
Sophomore Kate Edwards picked up the win in the 3k on the day, putting up a solid time of 11:01.79 to take the win in the event. She beat out the only other runner in the event, Johns Hopkins' Courtney Kelly, by nearly two minutes to take the top spot. Edwards' time was also good enough to qualify her for the Centennial Conference Championship in that event as well.
The first-years in attendance also had a terrific meet for the Owls. In the 300 meter run, Tara Holman continued her hot start to the indoor season by setting a personal record with a time of 45.81. In the 600 meter, Haley Varnum set a PR of her own with a 1:50.93. Holman also competed in the 60 meter dash, an event in which she set a new school record last week. She couldn't quite match her time from the previous meet, but her 8.32-second mark is certainly nothing to sneeze at either!
The Owls will continue to train over the holiday season, but they won't be back in competitive action until mid-January. Bryn Mawr will return to Princeton on January 23rd for the Tiger Open.
