Thimmel Breaks Discus Record at MoravianSaturday, April 13, 2013 - page 3
Thimmel (right) threw the discus 120 feet, 8 inches to finish second at The Coach P Open, hosted by Moravian. She tied the previous record of 119-6, which had stood since 1989, in the opening meet of the season.
Two other throwers had noteworthy achievements. Freshman Jordan Rosenthal finished third in the javelin first among collegiate competitors in wet, windy conditions on Friday night, and freshman Daniel Cano improved his personal best, which ranks 10th on the Mules’ all-time performance list, in the discus.
Junior Stephanie Carnevale set a personal record in the 100-meter hurdles, bettering her previous mark by five hundredths of a second to 15.12, the second-fastest time in team history.
At the Bucknell Outdoor Classic, senior Samantha Mayden ran a personal-best 4:37.39 in the 1,500 meters. She and classmate Erica Bash both qualified for ECACs.
The weekend began with two Muhlenberg athletes competing in the Mondschein Multi at Kutztown on Thursday, but they did not finish all the events due to Friday’s heavy rain.
