February 3, 2007 

COLLEGEVILLE, PA — Goucher relay teams finished 10th place or higher in three events — and one set a new indoor school record — today at the Frank Colden Invitational.

The quartet of Marisa Long (Hampton Bays, NY/Sachem), Rachel Boss (Keene, NH/Keene), Becky Foner (Cape Elizabeth, ME/Cape Elizabeth) and Fraley Coles (The Plains, VA/Highland School) completed the 4 x 800-meter relay in 10:40.94. In addition to being a new school record by approximately 15 seconds, the time allowed the quartet to finish in fourth place.

Goucher's 4 x 200-meter (2:03.91) and 4 x 400-meter (4:44.47) relays placed eighth and 10th, respectively.

By earning five points in the 4 x 800 and another in the 4 x 200, Goucher wound up in a tie with Ursinus in 18th place in the final team scoring.
