McDaniel finishes third at Dickinson in final tune-up for conferences

CARLISLE, Pa. – Katie Corson (Ocean View, N.J./Ocean City) won the 400 with a personal-best time of 1:01.88 to lead McDaniel to a third-place finish at the DuCharme Invitational hosted by Dickinson in women's indoor track and field on Saturday.

The Green Terror won four events, keying a 51-point showing without running any of the four relays in the meet. Dickinson won the 20-team event with 115.5 points while Gettysburg was second with 55.5 points.

In addition to Corson moving into fourth place on the all-time performer list with her victory, Jasmine Scott (Derwood, Md./Bullis) and Jennifer Garnett (Los Altos, Calif./Homestead) won sprint events while Lindsay Wilson (Catonsville, Md./Seton Keough) led the distance corps with a win in the 3,000.

Scott crossed first in the 200 with a time of 27.21 seconds. She was also second in the finals of the 55 with a time of 7.51 seconds after finishing the preliminaries with the top time (7.49).

Garnett won the 300 with a time of 45.01 and now ranks fourth all-time in the event.

Wilson turned in her best time of the season to win the 3,000 by nearly 20 seconds, crossing in a time of 10:25.84 – a time slowed when the field was stopped a lap early and had to start again to complete the final 200 meters of the race.

Emily Peoples (Wilmington, Del./Brandywine) finished seventh (11:09.76) and Missy Black (West Grove, Pa./Bishop Shanahan) was eighth (11:10.03) to round a trio of Centennial Conference (CC) qualifiers in the event. Black is now also the seventh-fastest performer at the distance in program history.

The Green Terror returns to action at the CC Championships hosted by Haverford on Saturday.
