Junior Ariana North started the weekend on Friday evening by setting a new school record and meet record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase by sweeping the field to take first place in 11:00.94. The time beat her previous record by 14 seconds and narrowly broke the meet record, set in 2015, by just over one second.

Sophomore Malone Gabor rounded out the record-setting performances with a time of 2:23.95 in the 800-meter run. The time topped the previous mark by under one second. Freshman Lauren Anderson also ran the event and set a new personal record in 2:26.09.
The Colonials placed a trio of student-athletes in the top 10 of the 1500-meter run. Freshman Halley Brown finished fifth out of 39 competitors in 4:50.44. She was joined by freshman Madison Yerke (7th, 4:51.91) and junior Macaulay Porter (9th, 4:53.80).
Junior Kirsten Zeller and senior Katie Bishop also set new personal records in the 1500m. Zeller finished in 4:58.66 for 16th place and Bishop in 5:11.78 (27th).
