|Track teams compete at Penn State National Open and Bucknell Bison Open|
On the womens side at the Penn State Open, senior Larisa Least (Geneseo, N.Y.) broke her own school record in the 500 with a time of 1:17.41. She set the previous record of 1:17.91 earlier this season. Senior Marie Lloyd (Spencerport, N.Y./Churchville-Chili) also ran in the 500 and her time of 1:17.52 was also underneath the previous school record
Larisa and Marie are both running really well right now, Thompson said. Their goal is to qualify for the ECAC meet and they are only .5 seconds away from doing it. They should meet the standard in the next few weeks.
Sophomore Heather Tassler (Hartsdale, N.Y./ Woodlands) had a strong meet at the Bucknell Open, finishing eighth in the 55 (7.616) and sixth in the 200 (26.93). On the mens side, sophomores Andy Kirsch (East Greenbush, N.Y./ Columbia) and Mike Ksionzyk (Olean, N.Y.) finished third and fourth in the pole vault. Both cleared a height of 14-9
Heather ran the best that she has all season, Thompson said. She is looking very good right now. Andy and Mike are on the verge of breaking the 15 foot barrier.
