Starting in 1998-99, it did not take long for the

Elizabethtown College women’s track & feld program to enjoy national success. In 2004, Carrie Kerna ’04 became the frst Blue Jay to earn All-America honors as she took second in the high hurdles at both the NCAA Division III Indoor and Outdoor Championships. Melissa St. Clair ’05 joined Kerna as an All-American at the 2004 in-door championships in the 5,000 meters, and was national runner-up in the 10,000 meters at the outdoor championships later that year en route to becoming a four-time All-American.

In 2011, Elizabethtown sent freshman Eileen Cody ’14 and Traci Tempone ’14 to the NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships in Delaware, Ohio. Both runners competed in the 10,000 meters and gained further valuable experience by running in the 5,000 meters at the USA Junior Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon this past June.

The Middle Atlantic Conference Championships were a relative success for the Blue Jays in 2011, as they fnished second at both the indoor and outdoor meets. A total of 44 All-MAC performanc-es were turned in by E-town student-athletes between the indoor and outdoor championships this past season.

The Blue Jays have one of the top outdoor track & feld facilities in the Middle Atlantic Conference, featuring an eight-lane European layout with 90-meter straightaways and 110-meter turns, while all feld events are centrally located on the infeld.
