BALTIMORE, Md. – Elizsha Streeter ran five races and helped break four school-records to lead the Wesley College women's track & field team at the Hopkins/Loyola Invitational on Saturday. The Wolverines finished seventh of 17 teams on the day, besting teams such as Washington & Lee, Division I Loyola University Maryland, Widener and York (Pa.)
Having the busiest afternoon of arguably any track athlete in the Nation, Streeter, a freshman from Hagerstown, Md., placed fifth in both the 100m and 200m Dash in school-record times of 12.51 and 25.70, respectively. Streeter also led off the sprint medley relay to a gold medal in a school-record time of 4:26.44 and ran the second leg of the record-breaking 4x100m Relay which took the silver in 49.25.
Joining Streeter in the SMR was freshmen Kiona Mency and Dieunise Desir, as well as junior Stevi Carpenter. Mency also was a member of the 4x100 along with fellow first-year standouts Kameko Webb and Angel Hall.
Desir and Webb also broke individual school-records in the 3,000m Steeplechase and Long Jump. A native of New Castle, Del., Desir took seventh in the Steeplechase in 13:05.06 while Webb took the bronze in the long jump at 16-08.75.
The long jump showcased Wesley's depth as freshman Kadijah Doughty (15-07.50), sophomore Taylor Lynch (15-01.25) and freshman Brittney Kerns (15-00.75) all broke the 15 foot mark while fellow newcomers Arnelle Akakpo and Kiara Johnson finished .75 inches and 1.5 inches short of the plateau.
Doughty's best performance on the day was in the shot put, as she shattered the school-record with a toss of 41-03.75 to take fifth in the event.
Also breaking one of eight school-records for Wesley on the day was Taylor Rae Danforth who took fifth in the pole vault with a jump of 10-06.00.
In the 100m hurdles, freshman Taylor Cosby took fifth in 16.08 while classmate Shawdae Frederick returned from injury that forced her to miss almost all indoor season to win her heat in 16.46 and take seventh overall.
The Wolverines return to the track for the Delaware State Invitational on Tuesday, April 15.
