SHIPPENSNBURG– The Men’s Track and Field claimed their ninth PSAC championship last weekend, scoring 205 points, the fourth year in a row they have done so. The women also dominated, claiming their eight PSAC championship.
Chris Craig became the fourth Shippensburg student to win the 100 meter dash over the past five years, and finished with less than a second off from breaking the school’s record for the 200 meter dash. Kier Miner also broke his school record for the 400 meter dash last week, finishing in 47.78 seconds.
Sarah Hunt not only placed second in long jump and first in triple jump, but was named the 2017 PSAC Outdoor Championships Most Valuable Athlete. Shippensburg women especially dominated in the javelin, with Morgan Defloria (140 feet, 6 inches), Crystal Hartman (140 feet 1 inch) and Emma Dolan (124 feet, 6 inches) all placing in the top three spots.
The Raiders achieved numerous of their set goals last weekend. This nine-year PSAC Championships win record is also the longest streak of consecutive men’s track & field conference championships in the league’s history, tied with West Chester too.
