SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Jasmine McCormick (Antioch, Calif./Holy Name) finished fourth in the long jump to lead McDaniel at the Orange and Maroon Classic hosted by Susquehanna in women's indoor track and field action on Friday.

McCormick added two additional 11th-place finishes for the Green Terror at the non-scoring meet. In the long jump, she turned in a personal-best jump of 4.80 meters to move fifth place on the program's all-time list. She was also 11th in the shot put (9.74 meters) and 200-meter dash (28.88 seconds). All three marks were good enough to hit Centennial Conference (CC)-qualifying standards.

Becky Kaler (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) added a seventh-place finish in the same event with a time of 5:46.42. Kelsey Minyon (Millville, Del./Indian River) and Amelia Lawrence (Cabin John, Md./Walt Whitman) rounded out a quartet of McDaniel runners in the event, finishing 17th (6:38.49) and 19th (6:47.78), respectively.
