Daniel Cano Sophomore Daniel Cano set a personal best by more than three feet in the indoor shot put to lead several outstanding performances by the Muhlenberg track and field teams at Lehigh’s John Covert Classic.

Cano’s throw of 43-2¼ landed him 10th on the school’s all-time performance list and shattered his previous best of 40-1¼. He finished second in his flight and ninth overall in a field of 30 entrants.

Senior Stephanie Carnevale turned in the lone ECAC-qualifying performance for the Mules, who won 15 places in a meet that included three Division I schools. Carnevale posted a third-place finish in the 60-meter hurdles.
