(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) – The Carnegie Mellon University women's track and field team hosted its annual Invitational on Friday and Saturday with teams from Division I, II and III institutions. Two school records were broke throughout the meet with three top places recorded for the Cardinal and Gray.
For the second straight meet, graduate student Kendra Noneman (Eagle, Idaho / Eagle) set a new school record in the hammer throw. Noneman won the event with a personal-best toss of 60.15 meters.
