The Forester track and field team opened up the indoor portion of their season at the Sean Brady Conditioner on Saturday where they competed against host Trine University and Grace College.

Benedicte Nzombi-Fenner was a double winner for the HU women. The rookie from Charleston (Ind.) sprinted her way to first place in the 60 meters with a time of 8.06, the third fastest time in Forester history. She also claimed top long jump honors with her leap of 4.91 meters, another mark that lands her in the Huntington record books.

Nicole Pennington trailed Nzombi-Fenner in the 60 meters to finish second in 8.10. The senior sprinter also ran to a third place finish in the 200 meters by clocking in at 27.31.

Huntington earned two of the top three spots in pole vault with Elise Cormany (2.75 m) taking second and Alyssabeth Cottle (2.59 m) finishing third.

Mara McFarland (10.83) and Molly Mitchell (PR 1:02.72) each finished third in the 60 meter hurdles and 400 meters respectively.

On the men’s side, Logan Daniels claimed HU’s only win with his mark of 1.80 meters in high jump.

Avniel Barrow started off indoor season with a bang. The sophomore speedster broke the school record in the 60 meters with his second place time of 7.10. Peyton Depriest, in his rookie debut, also had a solid outing in sprints to finish second in the 200 meters in 23.13 which will go down as the third fastest time in Forester history.

Huntington’s other top three finishes were in field events where Adam Woods slid in at third in long jump with his leap of 5.96 meters and Brooks Gerke, competing unattached, finished second in pole vault by soaring 4.12 meters.

The Foresters don’t compete again until the Defiance College Invitational on January 27.
