For the second time this week, the Army West Point Track and Field team was in action as they competed at the Nittany Lion Challenge at Penn State on Saturday.
The meet marked the first extensive action for much of the team on the young season, as they faced off with athletes from several top east coast schools such as Penn State, Georgetown, Maryland and VCU.
The Black Knights men's and women's teams combined for four victories and 18 top-three finishes on the day. Firstie captain Samantha Coletti was victorious in the women's mile with a time of 5:00.28 and teammate Anna Tovkach won the 800-meter run with a time of 2:10.02. Tovkach's time stands as the second fastest 800-meter time in Army history. Calli McMullen placed second in the 400-meter dash, jumping onto another Academy top ten list with the fourth fastest time in school history. The firstie currently holds the Army record in both the 60-meter and 200-meter dashes. Read more.
