Women's Track and Field Takes Third Place at Sewanee Indoor Invitational

The Oglethorpe women's track and field team closed out their indoor season with a solid showing at the 5-team Sewanee Indoor Invitational in Tennessee, finishing third at the event ahead of SAA opponents Berry and Sewanee.

The day saw sophomore Kayla Trice win the 200-meter title, finishing in 27.15 seconds to edge a pair of competitors from Birmingham-Southern. Trice wasn't finished, though, as she also secured second place in the 55-meter dash, besting a school record in the process. She finished that race in 7.28 seconds. Junior Nicolette Andrey also placed in the 55 meters, finishing fifth with a time of 7.69 seconds, while coming in third in the long jump with a leap of 15 feet, 0.5 inches.

Freshman Meghan Myler came in third in the 400-meter dash, posting a time of 1 minute, 7.91 seconds, while senior Becki White did the same, completing her race in 1:16.2. The 4-by-400-meter relay team of freshman Reagan Goodwin, freshman Julie Ericson, junior May Mizell and freshman Courtney Stuart took third in 4:43.11. Stuart also tied for fourth in the pole vault with a mark of 9 feet, 0.25 inches. 

"The women that competed today did a great job of taking care of business against some great competition at a smaller meet," said Oglethorpe head coach Kirk Shellhouse. "As we used this meet to tune up for the outdoor season, we still executed very well. Trice had great efforts in both the 55 and the 200 today. I'm very excited to see how she concludes her sophomore year."

The Petrels will be back in action on March 3, when they start their outdoor season with a trip to Mount Berry for the Victor Icebreaker Duals.
