Junior Briahna Chambers (Bell, Texas) won the long jump and broke her own school record in the 200-meter dash to highlight the Hanover College women’s track & field team's performances at the Anderson University Fred Wilt Invitational.
Chambers narrowly missed her own 60-meter dash record, placing second with an 8.04-second effort. Her record set in 2013 is 8.03.
Her 26.81 seconds in the 200-meter dash breaks her previous record of 26.84 set at the same meet last season.
Due to the winter break week, Chambers was one of only a handful of athletes to compete at the meet.
Just one week after a challenging distance triple at the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference championship, junior Mackenzie Dye (New Castle, Ind.) threatened the mile record, falling just short after being boxed in early in the race. Her 5:24.95 effort placed third overall.
Freshman Cami Trachtman (Carmel, Ind.) finished sixth in the 800-meter run with a season-best time of 2:20.16, while classmate Kori Siebert (Borden, Ind.) placed fourth in the rarely contested indoor 3,000-meter steeplechase (13:14.01).
Savannah Hubbard (Madison, Ind.), a freshman jumper, placed sixth in both the long jump (4.57 meters) and triple jump (9.69 meters).
Hanover was sixth in the 15-team invitational, scoring 39 points. DePauw University won the meet with 113 points.
