Lawrenceville, NJ – The Rider University track and field team competed at both the Monmouth Winter Collegiate Invitational and the Fastrack National Qualifier on Friday. The Broncs are getting in some final work before next weekend’s MAAC Championships.

“The Fastrack National Qualifier served as a real good tune up for our athletes in preparation for the MAAC Championships next week,” Rider University Head Coach Bob Hamer said. “We were able to get nine personal bests and three ECAC and IC4A qualifying performances.”

Sophomore Tierra Taylor (Browns Mills, NJ/Pemberton) had a strong meet for Rider, finishing 17th in the 200M dash.

“Taylor had another great meet today with several personal best performances,” Hamer added. “She is in a real good groove right now.  She is ready to do some big things at the MAAC meet next week”.

In the 60M hurdles at the Fastrack National Qualifier, senior Daria Chadwick (Summit, NJ/Summit) finished seventh with a time of 8.76.

“Daria also showed tonight that she is continuing to compete at a very high level week in and week out,” Hamer noted.

At the Monmouth Winter Collegiate Invitational, the Broncs saw freshman Darius Marrow (Toms River, NJ/Central Regional) and sophomore Cody Campbell (New Egypt, NJ/New Egypt) finish fifth and sixth, respectively in the weight throw. Marrow had a toss of 13.47m and Campbell recorded a throw of 12.89m.

Rider concludes the Monmouth Winter Collegiate Invitational on Saturday, February 11.
