Carpenter Breaks Three School-Records at Ursinus

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – In the collegiate track coaching debut for Stephen Kimes, Stevi Carpenter and Wesley College's women's track & field team broke three school-records at the Ursinus Bow-Tie Classic on Saturday afternoon against several Division I and II teams. 

A sophomore from Lester, Pa., Carpenter had a hand in all three records that were broken, including a 1:03.34 time in the 400m Dash.  She also ran the anchor leg of the record-breaking 4x200m Relay that finished in 1:56.23, and the second leg of the 4x400m Relay that finished in 4:32.24.  Joining her in the 4x200 were freshmen Tyesha Moaney and Nesha Elliott, as well as senior Twila McCrea.  McCrea also led off the 4x400 Relay and was followed by Carpenter and freshmen Zameerah Norton and Kerri Pagels.

McCrea also finished the open 400m in 1:04.93, which would have also broken the school-record had it not been for Carpenter's performance.

Sharis Allen also turned in a notable performance with a 29.02 mark in the 200m Dash, which won her heat and placed ninth overall.

The Wolverines will have a month off before their next meet on January 11 at the Kutztown Collegiate Invitational.
