HILLSDALE, MICH.  --  Members of the Trine University women's outdoor track & field team competed at the Gina Relays hosted by Hillsdale (Mich.) College in Hillsdale, Mich. and finished in a tie for 26th overall.

Trine had three competitors finish in the top-15 in the field events, including a pair of top-10 showings by junior Andrea Hagar (Goshen, Ind./Fairfield).  Hagar recorded her highest finish of the day in the open hammer throw of eighth place following a best effort of 145' 3.00".  She went on to finish ninth in the discus with a toss of 126' 5.00".

Freshman Kelsy Taylor (Louisville, Ky./New Albany) also finished in the top-15 in the discus alongside Hagar after a long toss of 115' 5.00" which was good enough for 15th place.

Highlighting the running events was a pair of top-10 finishes by senior Jensyn Garrow (Archbold, Ohio/Archbold) and sophomore Evie Bultemeyer (Fort Wayne, Ind./Homestead).

Garrow finished seventh in the open 400-meter dash with a time of 59.25 seconds.  Bultemeyer competed in the championship 1500-meter run and placed eighth overall in a field comprised of athletes from all three NCAA Divisions (I, II, III) and NAIA.  Bultemeyer completed the race in a time of 4:29.18 an improved upon her own school record that she set earlier this year.
