Freshman Sumer Rohrs (Frostburg, Md./Forest (Fl.)) was the lone women’s partcipant. She finished fifth in the 60-meter hurdles in 9.16 and captured ninth in the 60-meter dash (8.16).
“Right now she is ranked second at the NCAA Division III Indoor National Meet in the 55-meter hurdles along with her teammate Adrienne Raiford in the 55-meter dash, said Head Coach Felix Moreno. “I am looking for both to qualify in the 400-meter dash at the University of Maryland this weekend.”
“Overall, this meet was an excellent start for us considering our last competition was a month prior to this past weekend,” added Moreno. “I am looking forward to the University of Maryland to see how our team matches up.”
Frostburg State returns to action January 21st when it travels to the University of Maryland Indoor Invitational in Landover, Md.
