ANNVILLE, Pa. - Hood College's Danielle Pitts qualified for the Middle Atlantic Conference Championships in two events to lead the Blazers at the LVC Dutchmen Invitational. 

How it Happened

  • Pitts turned in MAC qualifying marks in both the shot put and weight throw. She threw the shot put 30-10 1/2 (9.41 meters), while her best heave in the weight traveled 36-10 1/2 (11.24m). 
  • Shea Jakubowski ran a time of 1:12.72 to finish second in the 400-meter dash.

Quotable

  • "Overall it was a great opener for us, we started off our indoor season with a bang where we posted a lot of personal bests and conference qualifiers. As a staff we couldn't be happier with where we are at to start the year," head coach Chris Benassi.
