The women’s indoor track team had another solid outing at the Maryland Invitational in Landover, Md., last weekend.
“The girls were tired this weekend,” coach Warren Bye said. “It was a long meet, but they did well.”
Solid individual performances from freshman Loutisha Hall and junior Jazmine Highsmith qualifies them to take part in the Big East Indoor Championship. Thirteen members of the team will represent the Bulls in the championship.
Hall placed second in the high jump of 1.75 meters. Her jump ties the all-time school record set by teammate Courtney LaCroix. Highsmith finished fifth with a 15.45-meter weight throw.
Denise Von Eynatten came in first for the second consecutive meet clearing 4.00 meters in the pole vault. Von Eynatten, Stephanie Duffy, Dana Webb, Karla Savery, and Beki Finn placed in the top five pole vault finishes.
According to Bye, senior Taylar Stallings finished second in the weight throw.
Other top performances include Yvana Hepburn, who finished third place in the 60-meter hurdles, and LaCroix, who placed third in the high jump.
“This group has done a very good job adjusting to school and training,” Bye said. “The coaches have done a great job getting them ready thus far.”
The team will travel to Boston for the Reebok Invitational on Saturday.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
