Taylor Breaks Record, Takes First at Chicagoland Championships

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Jazmin Taylor (Rock Island, Ill./Rock Island) led the Crusader women on the first day of the Chicagoland Championships at Lewis University. Taylor set a new program record in the high jump, clearing a height of 5’5”, breaking her own school-record of 5’4 ¼”. Taylor’s record-breaking height was good for first in the event.

Megan Howdeshell (Bourbon, Ind./Triton Junior-Senior) and Hannah Schilling (Fraser, Mich./Lutheran North) also wrapped-up day one with top-ten finishes in their respective events. Howdeshell took seventh in the hammer throw with a mark of 142’0”. On the track, Schilling placed tenth, finishing with a time of 39:49.36.

In her first race of the season due to injury, Jessica Richardson (Columbus, Ind./North) finished just outside the top-ten in the 5,000-meter run, crossing the finish line in 18:30.00 for eleventh-place.

After day one, the Crusader women sit at ninth-place with 12 points scored in eight events. Action at the Chicagoland Championships resumes tomorrow.
