Track and Field Makes History At Centennial Conference Championships

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. - Bryn Mawr Track and Field was back in action Sunday afternoon for day two of the Centennial Conference Championships. After executing day one with such poise the Owls had a lot of positive momentum going into day two and used that to their advantage. The Bryn Mawr Track and Field team finished eighth out of 10 conference schools at the 2018 Centennial Conference Championships, making it their fourth best finish in program history as they beat Muhlenberg College for the first time as well. Additionally the Owls scored a total of 37 points which is one of the highest point totals in program history. 

Jennica Terry was certainly an Owl to watch this weekend, and in the finals of all of her events on day two she proved why. Terry began her day in the 60 meter dash finals and cruised her way to a first place finish. Terry just edged out Maya Hammonds from Johns Hopkins by .02 seconds and finished at 7.98. Less than an hour later she was on the track again for the 60 m hurdles where she crushed her school record for yet another time this season. Terry crossed the line at 9.11, beat out the second place finisher by just over a second, and won the event.  Jennica Terry took the track on last time in the 200 dash and landed an unexpected third place finish. Her time of 26.82 landed her a season best in the event and a bronze medal to bring home. Jennica Terry scored a total of 26 points for the Owls in her first Centennial Conference Championships.

Natalia Phillip posted a strong performance in the shot put. The sophomore landed herself a spot in finals and executed a best throw of 11.68. Phillip's throw landed her a fourth place finish overall as she scored five points for the Owls. Mecca Harris also made an appearance in the shot put and landed a season best of 9.44m during trials.

In the long jump Rachel Greene finished 10th overall with a best jump of 4.69m.

Bryn Mawr gave a strong effort in the 4X 800. A foursome of Haley Varnum, Evelyn Ferrall, Emily Williams, and Anna Kyle finished in a time of 11:01.85 and placed ninth overall. In the last event of the day Georgia Nelson, Olivia Brintlinger-Conn, Emily Haller and Haley Varnum took the track for the 4 X 400 relay and finished in a time of 4:37.66.

The Owls will now get a bit of time to recover and continue training before they head into the outdoor season.
