After the Haverford Midweek indoor meet on Feb. 9, Bryn Mawr’s track learn had a lot to smile about. The young squad set nine personal records and one outstanding school record.

Sarah Crown ’02, Katie Caldwell ’03, Christina Felterhoff ’03 and Karen Miles ’00 established a new record in the 4×200 meter relay with a time of 2:02.5. Excellent handoffs played a key role the forging of the record.

Senior Elsa Heidorn and sophomores Kira Porton and Amy Dieterich set personal records in the 1500 meter race. Meanwhile, freshman Camille Agcaoili set two personal records in the 55 meter and 200 meter races. Nina Box leaped to a personal best of 4’6″ in the high jump, while Laura Rue debuted with a great time in the 55 meter race.

Adding to these personal record performances were the speedy 800 meter runners: Becky Dumont ’03, Maria Herd ’02 and Emily Manz ’02.

The team’s performance this past Wednesday manifested its hard work, spirit, and supportive attitude.

Their showing at the meet was not the only thing that drew smiles from the team.

“I love the sense of togetherness that keeps our team going strong … especially on the days we have to run in the snow!” freshman sprinter Camille Agcaoili said with a flashing smile.

The future looks promising for this team of 20 plus athletes, only three of whom are seniors.
