TOWSON, Md. - Dana Macaluso (Huntington, NY/Huntington) turned in the best outdoor performance in the long jump in the history of Goucher's women's track and field program and Dayna Mizzer (Prince Frederick, MD/Calvert) tied the outdoor school record in the high jump today at the Towson Invitational.

Only one Division III athlete outperformed Mizzer in the high jump as she placed eighth overall with her jump of 4-feet, 9-inches.

Macaluso and Mizzer were joined by Sheba Newman-Blount (Lanham, MD/Bishop Ireton) and Catherine Abbondanza (Yarmouth, ME/North Yarmouth Academy) in the 4 x 100 relay which captured fifth place with its time of :52.97.
