Spartans Compete at Terrapin Invitational

LANDOVER, Md. – The York College women's indoor track and field team competed in the Terrapin Invitational at Maryland on Saturday afternoon. The Spartans had a strong showing against some tough competition.

Head coach Erick Camodeca said he is happy with his teams performances today and believes they are right where they need to be.

Caroline DeLany (Frederick, Md./Tuscarora) opened her indoor season with an impressive day. She finished 15th in the mile with a time of 5:34.86. She then finished the 3000 meter run in 11:19.44 to earn 21st place. Camodeca is excited to see how well she will do this season.

Laura Rowlands (Dover, Pa./Dover) also had a strong day. With her eye on qualifying for nations, she started out with coming in at a higher height. In the high jump, Rowlands posted a leap of 1.53 meters and landed her self in 19th place. In the long jump she jumped 4.46 meters and finished the day with a 16th place finish in the triple jump with a distance of 9.83 meters.

Korissa Lincoln (Mohrsville, Pa./Schuylkill Valley) began her transition into a mid distance runner this season. She looked good today and Camodeca feels that once she learns pacing, her times will greatly improve. Lincoln finished the 800 meter dash in 2:51.10. She was the top Spartan finisher in the 600 in 18th place with a time of 1:58.69.

Coach Camodeca knows that both Jenna Roberts (Stewartstown, Pa./Kennard-Dale) and Rachel Berninger (Wilmington, Del./Brandywine) will continue to improve upon their times once things get rolling this season. Berninger finished the 600 meter dash in 2:04.00 and the 800 meter in 2:40.00. Roberts finished just ahead of Berninger in the 600 meter dash with a time of 2:00.55 and then just behind her in the 800 meter dash with a time of 2:51.10.

Next up for the Spartans is the George Mason Patriot Games on January 26 at 10:00 am.
