Icy Weather Doesn't Stop Track & Field From Posting Hot Times

HAVERFORD, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr track and field team took the short trip over to Haverford College earlier Monday for a tri-meet against the Fords and Widener. Despite the frigid, messy weather outside, the Owls ran hot all afternoon inside, posting numerous great results.

Freshman Tara Holman showed off her record-setting speed once more, re-setting the school record in the 60 meter dash. Holman took third place in the event, coming home in a time of 8.22 seconds.

Fellow freshman Julie Gonzales earned the lone win of the day for Bryn Mawr by taking the top spot in the pole vault. Gonzales took the victory with a highest jump of 2.85 meters.

The shot put was another highly successful event for the Owls. Gwendolyn Vary led the way for Bryn Mawr by taking second place in the event with a throw of 8.55 meters. Senior Margaret Patchin set a new personal record with her third-place throw of 6.87 meters, and Sasha Moiseyev-Foster also recorded a PR in the event with a heave of 6.17 meters.

Bryn Mawr's 800 meter group also put on a fabulous performance on the afternoon. Haley Varnum was the top finisher for the Owls in that event, coming in fourth in a time of 2:47.91. Fellow freshmen Madeleine Maier (2:49), Lily Falk (2:51), Allegra Wham (2:52), and Sophie Webb (2:53) all finished close behind.

The Owls will continue to train hard over the rest of the week gearing up for their next meet this weekend. Bryn Mawr will be right back at Haverford on Saturday for the Keogh Classic, slated to start at 11:00 AM.
