On the women’s side, Alexis Faria, Kate Gottwald, Sabrina Vumbacco and Maggie Wyngowski each won two events. Notably, Gottwald’s score of 257.70 in the 1-meter dive was the sixth highest in Bucknell history; the first year swept the diving events for the second-straight meet.

On the men’s side, John Gehrig led the way with three victories. Noah Basista and Leo Kuyl added two wins apiece; the duo also swam on the first-place 200 medley relay team.

The Lock Haven University men’s outdoor track & field team opened the 2021 season as the Bald Eagles hosted the Elliston Earlybird Open.

The meet is named for longtime and former LHU head coach Mark Elliston. Elliston, now the director of track and field and cross country at Elon University, led the Bald Eagles to a number of honors during his time in Lok Haven.

Lock Haven got individual wins from Zack Skrabski and Ryan Miller as well as a stadium-record in a winning effort by the Bald Eagles distance medley relay team.

Leading the way today for the women was distance-standout Laurel Moyer, a Central Mountain grad. Last week, she placed second at the PSAC cross country championships and wasted no time turning in a solid performance on thetrack.

Moyer ran the fastest women’s 5,000-meter time in Hubert Jack Stadium history and she anchored the first-place distance medley relay team that also broke a stadium record.
