SALEM, Va. – The Shenandoah University men's and women's indoor track & field teams had a combined six top-10 finishes Saturday afternoon at the season opening Best-Cregger Invitational hosted by Roanoke College.

Coach Andy Marrocco's two squads also had six ODAC qualifiers and 17 personal bests in what will be the Hornets only meet of the fall semester.

Sophomore Beatrice Maku had a school record in the 300-meter dash, ripping off a 45.74 to finish seventh to set the new program-best.

Jason White had the best finish of the day, fourth in the triple jump, and was also ninth in the long jump at 6:33 meters.

His 13.17 meter leap on his second attempt in the triple jump was good enough for that fourth place showing.

Elijah Morton rounded out the men's top 10s with a ninth place finish in the 60-meter dash. He had a 7.23 seconds in winning his heat.

In addition to Maku's seventh in the 300, Delia Mack was fifth in the 800 and Aislynn Smith sixth in the 3000 meters.

Mack had a 2:42.65 in the 800 and Smith an 11:03.71 in the 3K.

Morton, White (in both events) and Smith had the ODAC qualifying marks along with Alexandria Caljean in the 3000 meters and Natalie Lepri in the women's weight throw.

Shenandoah is now off for final exams and semester break. The Hornets return to action January 12 and 13 at the East Tennessee State Opener.
