SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – The 4x800-meter relay capped two days at the ECAC Division III outdoor track and field championship with a program record for McDaniel on Friday at Springfield College.

The women's foursome of Jasmine McCormick (Antioch, Calif./Holy Name), Katie Corson (Ocean View, N.J./Ocean City), Emily Gross (Red Lion, Pa./Red Lion) and Chloe Allen-Gorman (Portland, Ore./Lincoln) combined to lead the Green Terror with a time of 9:52.32 – nearly 11 seconds faster than the program-record time laid down two weeks at the Centennial Conference championship.

The group finished 19th in the event.

Earlier in the day, Corson turned in a time of 1:00.21 in the 400 to finish 30th.

On Thursday, Corson, McCormick and Allen-Gorman joined Claire Lawson (McMinnville, Ore./McMinnville) to finish 23rd in the 4x400-meter relay with a time of 4:13.80.
