The Heidelberg University track and field team traveled to University Heights, Ohio and the campus of John Carroll University to compete in the John Carroll Night Meet. The meet was unscored so no team score was recorded.
Senior Marian Bevington (Celina/Parkway) led the Heidelberg ladies with a third place finish in the 100-meter hurdles. Bevington clocked a time of 16.84.
Marian went on to compete in the long jump and finish in the top spot. She leaped 5.19-meters (17-0.5) to claim top honors. Marian also claimed first place in the javelin throw with a heave of 34.67-meters (113-9.0) in the finals.
Catrina Orr finished second in the women’s 400-meter hurdles with a time of 1:09.08 in the finals.
Freshman thrower, Mary Beth Boyden (Somerset/Sheridan) finished second in the women’s shot put. Boyden threw 12.50 (40-0.25) in the finals, just 0.11-meters (0-4.5) out of first place.
