PREVIEW: Colonials to compete in the Mountaineer Classic


By Colby Sherwin, Contributor

MORGANTOWN, W. Va.– The Robert Morris Track team will be heading to Morgantown for the Mountaineer Classic after coming in third place in the Carnegie Mellon Invitational. The Colonials are looking to get going after they finished fifth out of eleven in the Horizon League Indoor Championships.

Four Colonials took first place in the Carnegie Mellon Invitational as Yessie Valencia, Estelle Katende, Keturah Hunter, and Tara Gologram notched first place marks in their events. Keturah Hunter was named Horizon League Field Athlete of the Week for her performance. The Colonials had one of their best performances of the season and are looking to continue that in Morgantown.

The Mountaineers have gotten off to a rough start, but in their last meet in the Raleigh Relays, they had a long day. The best finishes for the Mountaineers were Myesha Nott, who finished fifth-placed and Abigale Mullings finished in second-placed in her events. The Mountaineers will need to do much better if they are going to turn it around.

I think WVU will be too much and turn it around in this one and they will take this meet.
