PSU Women’s Track Wins Outdoor Big Ten Title
In a close one, the Women’s Track and Field Team clinched the Big Ten Outdoor Title over the weekend in Columbus, Ohio, ekeing out the victory over the University of Michigan by just .25 points: 139- 138.75.
The women were down by less than a point with one race to go: the 4×400 meter relay. Penn State took third, Michigan took fourth, and that was all it took to grab the title.
Sophomore Shavon Greaves (Lakewood, N.J.) was the highlight for Penn State and left the championships with a pair of Big Ten titles. Junior Fawn Dorr (Akron, N.Y.) also came up big for Penn State, finishing as the conference runner-up in the 400 meters and the 400-meter hurdles and then anchoring the relay to boost the Lions to the top.
This was the women’s second title in as many years. The men’s team came in a respectable fifth place.
