GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Alva Ecker (Gettysburg, Pa./Gettysburg) recorded a trio of top-three finishes in the jumps to lead McDaniel at the 2013 Mason-Dixon Invitational hosted by Gettysburg in women's outdoor track and field action on Saturday.

As a team, the Green Terror placed eighth with 34 points. Gettysburg edged Millersville 120-117 to win the 14-team invitational.

Danielle Fatzinger (North Catasauqua, Pa./Catasauqua) moved into sixth place on the program's all-time list in the pole vault, finishing 11th at the meet by clearing 2.13.

Claire Lawson (McMinnville, Ore./McMinnville) notched a third top-10 all-time program mark, bettering her previous best in the 400 hurdles. She ranks ninth all-time after finishing third at the meet with a time of 1:10.01.

Becky Kaler (Jefferson, Md./Brunswick) rounded out the CC-qualifying marks on the track, finishing third in the 5,000 with a time of 19:31.15.

Emily Gross (Red Lion, Pa./Red Lion) was eighth in the 800 with a time of 2:40.04.

Fatzinger led the way in the throws, finishing eighth with a CC toss of 21.95 meters in the javelin. Katie Krishan was ninth in the event with a hurl of 21.85.

The Green Terror returns to action in the 4x400-meter relay at Penn Relays on Thursday. The race is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m.
