COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – Wesley College's Elizsha Streeter broke the Capital Athletic Conference Indoor Track & Field Record in the 400m Dash and also won the 200m Dash to lead the Wolverines at the Frank Colden Invitational hosted by Ursinus College on Saturday. This was the final tuneup for Wesley prior to the CAC Championships in two weeks.
A sophomore from Hagerstown, Md., Streeter finished the 400m Dash in 58.84, breaking the old CAC mark by 67-hundredths of a second. The personal record time was over a second faster than the time she ran last year. Streeter took the gold in the 200m Dash in a CAC season-best 26.17, beating out three runners from the University of Delaware who finished in second, third and fourth, respectively.
Closing out the day, Streeter also anchored the 4x400m Relay to a school-record 4:06.77, which is also the top time in the CAC this year. Joining Streeter on the relay was sophomores Angel Hall and Danae Carter, as well as freshman Quadira Minus. Streeter now owns the top time in the CAC this season in the 60m, 200m, and 400m Dash, as well as the 4x400m Relays.
Streeter was not the lone Wolverines to have great performances on the day as sophomore Taylor Rae Danforth broke her own school-record in the pole vault once again with a mark of 10 feet, six inches.
Freshmen Alexia Mitchell and Kierra Dukes turned in second place finishes in the 60m Dash and 60m hurdles, respectively. Mitchell finished in 8.04 while Dukes clocked a 9.93 in prelims but took silver in the finals with a 10.02. Classmate Ashley Morris ran a 9.80 in the prelims which was the second-fastest overall time of the day, but her time in the finals placed her fourth overall.
Wesley ran a pair of 4x200 Relays which ran solid times of 1:49.65 and 1:56.44, which finished in third and seventh place, respectively. Running the top time was the combination of Hall, Mitchell, Morris and Minus while Dukes ran with classmates Aja Russell, Leslie Alston and Anisah Teach on the B team.
Teach also took fifth in the triple jump (32-08.50) and seventh in the long jump (15-6) while Alston finished just ahead in the long jump with a mark of 16-00.25 to finish fifth. Sophomore Kameko Webb placed fourth in the long jump in 16-04.25.
