SCHOOL RECORDS FALL AT MONMOUTH INVITATIONAL
MONMOUTH, Ill. – No team scores were kept at last Saturday’s Fighting Scot Invitational, but that didn’t keep the Monmouth College women from recording their share of school records, personal bests and provisional marks.
The Fighting Scots made the biggest splash in the throws where Gloria Lehr and Amanda Streeter turned in provisional qualifying marks. Lehr took first in the shot put and improved her provisional effort with a throw of 43’0-1/4. Streeter placed sixth at 38’7-1/2 and Allison Devor took seventh with a mark of 38’4-1/4. Lehr and Streeter then threw provisional distances in the weight throw. Lehr was second with a mark of 52’4-3/4, Streeter was fourth at 51’5-3/4 and Devor’s personal best throw of 46-3-1/4 placed her sixth.
A personal best for Morgan Leffel placed her first in the long jump with a leap of 16’9-1/4, edging teammate Mackinsey Marquith who finished second at 16’7-3/4. Mikayla Vail was eighth at 14’10. That trio also did well in the triple jump where Leffel took fourth at 35’1-3/4, Marquith turned in a personal best 34’7 for fifth and Vail was eighth at 32’6-1/4.
A school record fell in the mile where Mary Kate Beyer finished seventh with a time of 5:14.15 to break the old mark by three seconds. Rachel Bowden ran a personal best 5:19.25 to place ninth. Bowden also clocked a PR in the 3,000-meter run where she ran a 10:48.11 to place fourth. Beyer won the event in 10:28.78. Tori Beaty took eighth in the 5,000 with a time of 21:29.35.
Jae Moore posted a first place finish in the 200 dash. She broke the tape in 26.95 and Leffel placed fifth in 27.70. Moore also placed third in the 55 dash with a time of 7.57 and Leffel was sixth in the 400 with a time of 1:01.61.
