Morrison topples 800 record again

For the third time in her career, Laura Morrison has broken Fredonia's outdoor 800-meter run record, this time by more than a second.

Her second-place finish of 2:11.05 at the State University of New York Athletic Conference championships was faster than her previous school record of 2:12.34. Oneonta's Rachel Shine finished just .05 seconds faster at 2:11.00.

Brittany Feldman took second in the finals of the 4100-meter dash (56.16), behind Buffalo State's Jazlyn Porter (55.33) who broke the meet record Feldman set on Friday (55.95).

Freshman Stephanie Wojnowski came within seconds of setting a school record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Her personal best time and fifth-place finish of 11:25.63 was just slower than Lauren Kotas's record of 11:22.18. Julia Johnson also ran a personal best time in the event at 11:53.73.

Anneliese Bienko finished third in the discus throw. Her toss of 39.66 meters was better than her previous best mark of 35.93 meters. Rachel Williams scored in the shot put, finishing eighth with a throw of 11.75 meters. Brianne Paganello took ninth at 11.50 meters. Sarah Couperus took third in the high jump, clearing 1.59 meters. Couperus won the conference championship in the high jump during the 2015-2016 indoor season.

The 4x400-meter relay team of Feldman, Morrison, Mia Walker, and Bonnie Binggeli finished the evening with a third place finish of 4:00.29.
