HAVERFORD, Pa. - The Owls track & field team capped off their indoor regular season earlier Saturday down the road at Haverford with some very impressive performances. Jennica Terry earned a big win in the 60 meter hurdles, capping a strong set of performances across the board by the Owls at the Keogh Invitational.

The junior wrapped up her day with a fourth-place finish in the 200 meter dash, once again running a season best with a time of 27.25 seconds.
The Owls also got a couple of new conference qualifications on the day thanks to impressive performances from Carey Parker and Lydia Fisher.

Fisher put together the other conference qualifying performance, debuting in the long jump with a long of 4.17 meters to extend her season another weekend.
The team also saw plenty of other personal records in the meet, collecting 12 of those marks in total. In just the 60 meter dash alone, Kass Wojcik (8.37s), Zaynah Moen (9.30s), and Emily Britt (10.23s) posted new personal bests.
