(Lewisburg, Pa.) - The Dickinson women's track team saw three runners set personal bests in the 5000 meters at the Bucknell Bison Open.

 

First-years Abigail Colby (Birdsboro, Pa./Mercersburg Academy) and Carly Pierson (Newton, N.J./Kittittinny) broke 20 minutes, running 19:40 and 19:50, respectively. 

 

The highlight of Friday evening came in the fast heat of the 5k, where sophomore Sarah Rutkowski (Swarthmore, Pa./Strath Haven) ran 18:21 for second place overall. With mile splits of 5:52, 5:55, 5:57, and a final 400 meters of 79 seconds, Rutkowski ran a massive personal best and the third best time in the conference this season.

 

The Red Devils are scheduled to compete at the Haverford Invitational next weekend.
