Kellon Eradicates Oldest Existing Indoor School Record

Sophomore Also Finishes as Runnerup in 55 Hurdles, 300 Dash

ANNVILLE, Pa. — The Goucher women's indoor track and field program's oldest existing school record was broken today by sophomore Jaclyn Kellon (Cleveland Heights, Ohio/St. Peter Chanel) at the Lebanon Valley Indoor Invitational.

Kellon's time of 1:24.36 not only allowed her to finish as runner-up in the 500-meter dash, it also broke the school record of 1:29.10 established back in February 2001 by Jen McCulley.

Kellon had two additional second-place performances at today's meet and also ran the final leg on Goucher's entry in the 4 x 200-meter relay which finished in — where else? — second place. She was runner-up to Johanna Walker from Lebanon Valley in the 55-meter hurdles, which she completed in :09.76, and to Alie Nelson from Catholic in the 300-meter dash (:46.92).

In the 4 x 200 relay, Kellon followed Caitlin Biggers (Cortlandt Manor, N.Y./Lakeland), Kate Clarke (Hendersonville, Tenn./Pope John Paul II) and Dana Macaluso (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington) and that unit finished second behind Lebanon Valley, turning in a time of 2:01.61.

Goucher also produced the runners-up in the 3,000-meter run and the weight throw. Taylor Burr (Addison, Maine/Maranacook Community) placed second in the 3K with her time of 11:43.73; Abby Cooney (Holden, Mass./Wachusett Regional) finished behind only Meghan Rose from Hood in the weight throw (35-feet, 8.5-inches).

Placing third for the Gophers were Macaluso in the long jump (14-feet, 3.25-inches) and Clarke in the 55-meter dash (:07.92). Clarke also placed fourth overall in the 300 (:48.31); Katelynn Zidanic (York, Pa./Central York) and Cooney were fifth, respectively, in the 3K (12:11.49) and shot put (30-feet, 3.75-inches).

There was no team scoring.
