TOWSON, Md. --- The Moravian College women's track & field squad garnered its 12th consecutive Landmark Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championship by winning the 2019 meet hosted by Goucher College on Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5.
The Greyhounds claimed title with a 31-point victory over runner-up Elizabethtown College. The Hounds scored 197 points to the Blue Jays' 168, and Moravian had four individual champions and two relay teams finish first.
"We asked a lot of a number of athletes this weekend like Anna Osman, Jen Eberly, Morgan Weaver, all of our distance runners, and I could go on," stated Director of Cross Country and Track & Field Jesse Baumann. "In some instances, it meant they sacrificed some personal goals for the sake of the team, but in the end, it was needed and paid off. Etown has great depth and we needed all the points we could muster up. We had numerous PRs despite the weather, and as with the men, they proved they're gamers with some stand out performances. It was a great weekend and we hope to continue the success into Regionals and NCAAs."
