Spartans Compete at the DuCharme Indoor Meet

CARLISLE, Pa. – The York College women's track & field squad competed at the DuCharme Indoor Meet on Saturday afternoon at Dickinson College.

The competition was focused more on individual performance because it was a non-scoring team meet.

Head coach Erick Camodeca said that he was pleased with today's performances.

The Spartans underclassmen looked strong in the 55-meter dash. Sophomore Transfer Takera Smalley and freshman Bria Jones debuted for the Green and White with qualifications for the dash finals. Smalley ran 7.75 and finished tied in fourth place, while Jones came in right behind her with a time of 7.78. Camodeca believes that it was a great start for the two young sprinters who are coming of preseason injuries.

Deborah Fidele continued her success from last season as she broke the school record in the 300-meter dash. Fidele finished in the race in 46.54 and placed third. She also earned a fifth place finish in the 200-meter dash with a time of 29.05.

In the 1000-meter dash, Nikki Fox ran to a third place finish in 3:45.24.

Camodeca was proud of the Spartans that competed in the long and triple jump.

"The results won't show how well these women jumped today," said Camodeca. "We are very optimistic as to what they are going to be able to accomplish this season."

Laura Rowlands was the top jumper for the Green and White. She finished in 14th place in the long jump clearing 14.35 meters and then jumped a solid 9.80 meters to finish tied for third in the triple jump.

York returns to action on Saturday, January 19 at the Maryland Terrapin Invitational. The meet is set to start at 10 am.
