Gordinier also won fourth place in the 200-meter dash with a time of 27.15, a new ESF school record. Other notable perfomances on the women's squad were freshman Hunter Longenberger (shotput, 18th place, 8.11m) and junior Cara Keogh (300m, 15th place, 12:18).

On the men's side, Ryan Mackerer set a new ESF school record in the men's 400-meter dash with a time of 54.24 while finishing in 15th place out of 36 runners. Senior Thomas Acuri finished in the top 20 in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:06. The men's distance medley team, consisting of junior Dan McGraw, sophomore Alex Fisher, Mackerer and Acuri, also set a new school record with time of 11:43.

The team is off this weekend and will return to action at the Denaukt Invitational held at Cornell University Feb. 21.
