WOMEN’S TRACK CONTINUES TO BREAK RECORDS

Almost two weeks after winning the Centennial Conference championship, the Muhlenberg women’s track and field team is keeping up its record-setting ways.

The Mules broke two school records on the first day of the ECAC Jenna Lombardi Championships, hosted by Springfield.

Senior Ashlie Hankee posted the second-fastest qualifying time in the 100-meter high hurdles, hitting the NCAA provisional mark for the second straight time. Her clocking of 14.89 lowered the school record she set at the CC meet by eight one-hundredths of a second.

Freshman Jenna Lombardi (pictured) also won her heat, qualifying for the 100-meter final with a school-record time of 12.62. Since breaking the school record at her first outdoor meet of the season on April 9, Lombardi has lowered it from 12.97 to 12.86 to 12.76 to now 12.62.

Muhlenberg had two men compete in the steeplechase. Senior Christopher Martin finished 10th in 9:53.30, just four seconds off the school-record time posted by sophomore Dave Chesny earlier this season. Chesny ran a 10:00.31.
