Fieldhouse marks spark Panthers at Anderson

Two fieldhouse records from sophomore sprinters led the Hanover College track and field teams at the Anderson Indoor Invitational. Led by the record-setting efforts of sophomores Briahna Chambers (Bell, Texas) and Jordan Moseby (Indianapolis, Ind.), the Panthers' women’s team won the invitational, while the men finished fifth.

The meet was held Saturday, Feb. 2, in the Kardatzke Wellness Center in Anderson, Ind.

Moseby set a fieldhouse record in winning the 60-meter hurdles in a time of 9.11 seconds, topping the rest of the field by more than half a second. Moseby’s time currently ranks 12th in the country and is the new Hanover College record.

Chambers tied the fieldhouse record in the 60-meter-dash, running a school-record 8.09 seconds in the preliminaries.

Chambers also placed second in the long jump (4.67 meters) and cruised to a commanding win in the 200-meter dash. Her time of 27.46 seconds narrowly missed Angie Lugo’s 1998 record of 27.43.

Sophomore Mackenzie Dye (New Castle, Ind.) outdistanced the 5,000-meter field, running 18:29.68. Dye only ranks behind former all-American Leah Peelman in the event.

The women’s team set three records in the field events.

Sophomore high jumper Frannie Larson (LaGrange, Ky.) leaped 1.58 meters, breaking Amanda Fritz’s 1993 record of 1.53 meters. She placed third in the event.

For the second consecutive meet, senior thrower Emily Boyd (Indianapolis, Ind) won the weight throw, matching her school-record heave of 14.11 meters.

Classmate Stephanie Proffit (Independence, Ky) and freshman Ashlee Arbaugh (Van Buren, Ohio) finished second and third in the event, respectively, throwing 12.39 meters and 11.93 meters.

Arbaugh also broke her own shot put record, winning with a 11.49 effort.

Senior Khrystal Nugent (Lake Village, Ind.) won long jump with a career-best 4.78 meter effort. The jump ranks third in Hanover indoor history.

In just her first collegiate outing, freshman Holli Leslie (Indianapolis, Ind.) won the triple jump. Her winning leap of 10.44 meters ranks second in Hanover history, narrowly missing Maggie Noger’s record of 10.46.

Noger, a senior from Lexington, Ky., finished third with a 10.02-meter effort.

Hanover scored 171 points to edge Wheaton College (Ill.) and four Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference opponents to the meet crown.

Two male distance runners earned a place in the Hanover record books in the 5,000-meter run.

Sophomore Logan Wells (Scottsburg, Ind.) finished fifth in a time of 16:29.30, while freshman Ben Franke (Seymour, Ind.) finished one place behind in 16:29.77. The pair move into third and fourth on the school's career indoor list.

Sophomore thrower Austin Duncan (Pekin, Ind,), also earned a spot on the top-five list, tossing the weight 13.57 meters. Duncan placed third overall and is now fourth in Hanover history in the event.

Freshman Joe Feldman (Oregonia, Ohio) placed third in the 400 meters, running a season-best 52.05. His third place finish also ranks third on the Hanover indoor list.

Freshman high jumper Nick Jaeger (Terre Haute, Ind.) finished third with a 1.93-meter jump.
