JCU women’s track and field team traveled to the Youngstown Mid-Major Invite on Feb. 1 and Feb. 2, where they proved worthy of the No. 3 ranking they had earned in the Great Lakes Region.  

It was a big day for John Carroll sophomore Jamie Amoroso, who nearly broke the school record in the 1,000-meter run. She finished sixth in the race, but was less than a half second away from setting a John Carroll record. Breaking the 1,000-meter record has been a goal for  Amoroso since her freshman year. “It is definitely within my reach, and is do-able,” Amoroso told The Carroll News.

While she did not break the record, she did set a new personal best.

Amoroso added, “It is always a great feeling to set a new personal achievement. It makes all of the hard workouts and training well worth it.”

Amoroso also finished 26th out of 56 in the 800-meter run.

The Streaks had strong showings both days with finishes within the top 15 against Division-I competition in the 200-meter and 500-meter runs.

Freshman Autumn Hale took fifth in the 500-meter, followed by freshman Mary Claire Schmeltzer and sophomore Amy Morris, as they finished eighth and 12th respectively.

Freshman Cameron Bujaucius finished second in the 5,000-meter run. She was 10 seconds off of the John Carroll record.  

Junior Nikki Linn finished third in high jump after jumping 1.56-meters, and sophomore Courtney Phoennik finished eighth, jumping 1.51-meters.  

Sophomore Karrah Spencer almost cracked the top 10 in 60-meter hurdles, finishing 11th with a time of 9.49 seconds. Fellow sophomore Morgan Kelley finished 19th in the 5,000-meter run.  

The women’s track and field team have two meets before the OAC Championships on Feb. 22-23. Saturday, Feb. 9, they will be in Westerville, Ohio, competing in the All-Ohio Championships.
