Women’s Track Claims Southeast Regional Title

HICKORY, N.C. - The Lees-McRae College women's track and field team won the 2010 Southeast Regional Meet Hosted by Lenoir-Rhyne Friday and Saturday with 177 points.

The Lady Bobcats earned 34 top eight finishers. In a scored track meet the top eight finishers earn team points.

Hannah Henderson broke the school record in the 1,500m run with a time of 5:04.19.

Erin Tyler led the team with nine top eight finishes. She finished fourth in the 100m hurdles, second in the 400m hurdles, fifth in the high jump, second in the pole vault, third in the long jump and first in the javelin. Tyler's distance in the javelin, 31.28m, set a new school record.

The Lady Bobcat finished ten points ahead of second place Mars Hill, who had 167.66 points. UNC-Pembroke took third with 153 points.

"The last two weeks have been the greatest two weeks I have ever had as a head coach," said head coach Ley Fletcher. " We had our guy's win the conference championship and then the women and the men come back a week later with the same intensity and won the NCAA II South East Regional Championship. A lot of the credit needs to go to Jeff Watson, Thomas Cason, and Craig McPhail. Without a great coaching staff none of this would be possible. The athletes also need to be commended they are the ones who have worked so hard and sacrificed a lot of hours to reach their goals. I would like to thank all of our athletes for their dedication and hard work."
