Women's Track Finishes Penn State National
The Army West Point women's track team closed out the Penn State National Open on Saturday. The team was led by strong efforts from cow Haley Watson, who finished third in the women's 800m, and firstie Abby Halbrook, who placed third in the women's mile. Head Coach Mike Smith said "There were a lot of really good things that happened for us today. But that is not a surprise. Our kids rise to the level of competition and today against some really strong teams from the Big Ten, Ivy League and ACC, we performed very well. Our throws women made some nice adjustments this week and it showed today in the shot put. Lauren Schultz and Emily Mikoud are just starting to get into a groove there, so I look forward to watching them take off in the coming weeks. We also shined out on the track today in multiple areas. Our middle distance women were as advertised: tough and fighting to win events. Cassie Mundekis came within .50 seconds of her own school record in the 800 and Abby Halbrook followed suit in the mile, just missing her own mark set last year in this meet" Read more.
