Women Take to Track at Western Carolina

Cullowhee, NC--The Lees-McRae College women's track and field team took to the track for the 3rd time in 8 days at Western Carolina University. Competing on a rain-soaked track and overcast conditions, the women's team produced some good performances. Leading the way was April Harris (Jonesville, VA) who finished 2nd in the 3,000m steeplechase.

Sophomore Erin Tyler (Branford, FL) competing in multiple events did a terrific job managing her time and performances. She finished with a personal best in the shot put and placed in the long jump and high jump. Junior Jenny Hurd (Danbury, NC) finished 5th overall in the 400m dash.

The Lady Bobcats will compete with a limited squad at the Duke Invitational this coming weekend.
