BISON BRING BACK SIX FIRST PLACES FROM CAPITAL MEET

Feb. 13 - BEXLEY, Ohio – Junior Jodi Bodo (Steubenville, Ohio/Steubenville Catholic Central) won three events, which highlighted the day for the Bethany men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams, who earned six first places at the Capital (Ohio) University meet Friday night.

Bodo’s run of success started in the long jump, where she went 16 feet, 3.25 inches. On the track, she won the 400 with a season-best time of 1:01.25, which was also more than three seconds ahead of the second place runner. She also posted her fastest effort of the season in winning the 200 in 27.79.

Freshman Connie Woods (Alexandria, Va./T.C. Williams) notched two good showings in the jumps. She was second behind Bodo in the long jump (15-8.25) and then won the triple jump with a jump of 35-4, three-quarters of an inch better than her effort last week which qualified her for ECAC Indoor Championships.

Rounding out the top three efforts from the Bison women were freshman Cassandra Allen (Washington, Pa./Canon-McMillan) finishing second in the triple jump (31-1), sophomore Kelli McAbrier (Ginadenhutten, Ohio/Indian Valley) taking second in the 60 hurdles (10.71) and junior Maggie McCort (Fort Ashby, W.Va./Frankfort) earning third in the mile (5:43.11).

Bethany’s final two first places came from the men’s team. Sophomore Clint Wilson (Moundsville, W.Va./Bishop Donahue) won the high jump by clearing 6-0. The other winner was senior Taylor McNeil (Old Saybrook, Conn.), who broke the tape first in the 200 in 23.78 seconds.

Both Bison teams will be back in action next Saturday when they compete at the Kent State Invitational.
