Track and field shows well at St. Joseph meet
In their second year of modern-era competition, the men’s and women’s track and field teams made a good showing at the College of Mount St. Joseph Invitational and gained more valuable experience while taking part in both the indoor and outdoor meets of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. Both teams are led by head coach Jason Moncer.
At the Mount St. Joseph meet, the women’s team finished third behind the host school and Georgetown College, and ahead of Northern Kentucky University, Indiana East University, Thomas More College, and St. Catharine College. Among the top individual performers for the Pioneers were junior Lucy Wright, who won the shot put and hammer throw and was third in the discus, and sophomore Ria Keegan, who took second in the 800-meter run.
On the men’s side, junior Aaron Carrithers won the javelin, and sophomore Ryan Stockdill was sixth in the 800-meter run.
Transylvania took part in the first HCAC indoor meet, held at Anderson University, where both men’s and women’s teams finished ninth. Wright captured second place in the women’s shot put. The outdoor meet was held at Hanover College, and both teams came in 10th.
