Corson part of new marks

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – After four years of trying, Katie Corson (Ocean View, N.J./Ocean City) finally accomplished a well-stated collegiate track goal – breaking the 60-second barrier in a McDaniel uniform.

Seeded sixth in the finals of the 400 at the 2013 Centennial Conference (CC) women's track and field championship hosted by Ursinus, Corson would need to knock a quarter second off her already collegiate-best 1:00.25 from Saturday's prelims. She did that and more, taking down the program record by 1.17 seconds and earning a silver medal with her time of 58.57 seconds. The previous mark had stood for 15 years (Kerry Wilson at the CC championship meet).

It was the second record that Corson took over the weekend. Following her 400 prelim race, she teamed with Jasmine McCormick (Antioch, Calif./Holy Name), Emily Gross (Red Lion, Pa./Red Lion) and Chloe Allen-Gorman (Portland, Ore./Lincoln) to take down the 4x800-meter record with a time of 10:03.29.

In addition to those two ECAC-qualifying times, Corson also led off the 4x400-meter relay to an ECAC-qualifying time of 4:07.45, joining McCormick, Claire Lawson (McMinnville, Ore./McMinnville) and Allen-Gorman.

The 4x400 finished seventh at the championship while the 4x800 was eighth.

As a team, the Green Terror finished ninth with 19.5 points. Johns Hopkins ran away with the title, scoring 274.5 points to outdistance second-place Haverford by 181.5 points.

Alva Ecker (Gettysburg, Pa./Gettysburg) led the way on the field side, finishing tied for fourth in the pole vault, clearing a personal-bet 2.95 meters. Her vault of 9-8 betters her second-place standing on the program's all-time list by 2 ¼ inches. She was also 16th in the high jump (1.38) and 17th in the long jump (4.46).

McCormick finished seventh in the finals of the 100 hurdles with a time of 16.84 seconds after qualifying eighth with a time of 16.57. She was also 11th in the high jump, clearing 1.43 meters and 19th in the javelin with a toss of 24.44.

Kelsey Dickman (Abington, Md./Bel Air) finished seventh in the shot put with a toss of 11.17 meters. She was also 13th in the javelin (26.76).

Lawson was 13th in the 400 hurdles (1:11.87) while Allen-Gorman placed 20th in the 800 (2:29.01).

Laura Shinn (Weehawken, N.J./Pennington Prep) finished 15th in the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 12:43.49 while Becky Kaler (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) finished 24th in the 5,000 (19:42.87).

The 4x100-meter relay of Ecker, McCormick, Lawson and Corson finished ninth with a time of 53.80 to round out action on the track.

Danielle Fatzinger (North Catasauqua, Pa./Catasauqua) and Katie Krishan rounded out the action on the field side, finishing 15th (25.94 meters) and 21st (19.74) in the javelin, respectively.

Taylor Stillings (Eldersburg, Md./Liberty) competed in the heptathlon on Friday and Saturday, finishing 13th with 2,305 points without completing the seventh event (800). Her best showing came by way of a seventh-place finish in the 200 with a time of 28.49 seconds (593 points).

The Green Terror returns to action at the York (Pa.) Twilight Meet on Thursday. Action begins at 4 p.m.
