Terry Wins Hurdles as Owls Take Eighth at Centennial Conference Championships

Jennica Terry hurdles for the Owls at Ursinus in the '17-'18 season

LANCASTER, Pa. - The Bryn Mawr track & field team capped off their indoor season earlier Sunday afternoon with the second and final day of the Centennial Conference Championships, and the Owls were looking to make a lot of noise on the day. With two new school records set during Saturday's proceedings, there was plenty of momentum coming into Sunday, and Bryn Mawr definitely kept that rolling on the final day of the meet.

Jennica Terry was back in action for the finals of both the 60 meter dash and 60 hurdles. The defending champion in each of those events, Terry came into the day with the fastest 60 hurdles qualifying time, and that performance only improved on Sunday. The sophomore did a tremendous job outpacing the field in the event, showcasing some blazing speed to finish in a time of 9.23 seconds. That was a new season best for Terry, and also enough to defend her title, as she beat out the next closest finisher by .08 of a second.

Terry came up just shy of repeating the double this time around, but she still claimed a podium finish in the 60 meter dash. She wasn't quite able to match her qualifying time from yesterday, or surpass her season best, but her effort of 8.11 seconds was still enough to take third place in the event. With those two finishes, Terry added a crucial 16 points to Bryn Mawr's team total.

Bryn Mawr got several other top ten performances on the day, starting with a fifth-place finish from Kass Wojcik in the 200 meter dash. The first-year posted a collegiate best time of 26.99, making her the second-fastest finisher in her heat and topping her previous season best by almost half a second. Wojcik also took seventh place in the 400 dash, posting a new collegiate best by well over half a second. Her finish of 1:01.65 was again the second-fastest time of her heat, and she added another six points to the Owls' haul with those performances.

Anna Kyle was another Owl who came home with a top ten, as she took ninth place in the 3k. The junior couldn't quite match her season best from earlier this winter, but still threw down a strong time of 10:55.21 to finish just outside the scoring margin.

Rachel Eaglin was also back in action after her record-setting performance in the pentathlon yesterday. On Sunday, Eaglin competed in the high jump, where she cleared a high of 1.32 meters. 

Bryn Mawr found some success in the relays as well, starting with the 4x400. There, Wojcik, Amelia McDonnell, Sarah Keane, and Kyle combined to post a time of 4:38.18, a new season best for the Owls. Bryn Mawr also put up a new season best in the 4x800 as well, as McDonnell, Haley Varnum, Allegra Wham, and Kyle ran a 10:44.57 to beat out the squad from McDaniel in the event.

With the results, Bryn Mawr had also managed to easily knock off both Gettysburg and McDaniel in the team score, with the Owls claiming their second consecutive eighth place finish overall at Championships. The team will now get a short break but will still be hard at work training for the outdoor season, which kicks off on March 23rd at Ursinus.
