December 4, 2017--The Mount St. Mary's women's indoor track and field team opens the 2017-18 season at the Navy Lidlifter on Tuesday night. The field includes the Mount, Navy, James Madison, Georgetown, Temple, Loyola, Morgan State, Towson and Bowie State.
Last year at the Navy Lidlifter, Erin Sample won the shot put to pace the Mountaineers. Moriah Fitzgerald finished tied for third in the pole vault while Chelsea Wright (high jump), Elissa Ingram (pole vault), Kenedi Facey (long jump) and Shantell Karbegh (triple jump) each had fifth-place marks.
The Mount will have athletes compete at the Fast Times Before Finals Heptathlon hosted by Lehigh on Dec. 8 and 9. Both the men's and women's teams will then be off for a month before returning to action at the Navy Winter Invitational on Jan. 12 and 13.
