The women’s track team was scheduled to compete Saturday Feb. 6, at Ursinus College. Due to the inclement weather, the meet was canceled. The women’s track team was hoping for a successful weekend because they had two meets scheduled. Besides the Ursinus College meet, two members of the team were invited to New York City to compete in the New Balance Collegiate Invitational. Nadia Hernandez and Danica Giddens were both invited to the New York meet. Due to an injury, Nadia Hernandez was unable to compete in the New York meet.
This was a big meet for Danica Giddens. Giddens is one of the top Division III runners and at the New York meet she ran primarily against Division I athletes.
At the Ursinus track meet there were three top runners from Cabrini College entered in the meet. Quiana Volney was one of the runners scheduled to participate in this event. During this season, Volney is setting her sights on breaking the school record in the 800 meters. Diane Gapinski is one of the top milers for Cabrini’s women’s track. She was disappointed the meet was canceled this weekend, however she is scheduled to compete in the Lafayette/Rider Winter Games at The Armory Track and Field Center in New York.
“I am a distance runner with my true love being cross country, so I personally use indoor track season for training and to get speed work. Everyone on the team is working hard to accomplish their own personal goals,” Gapinski, early childhood education junior, said. Shatievah Lewis is another top runner who was scheduled to compete in the Ursinus College meet. Lewis was scheduled to run in two events. It would have also been the first time Lewis would have been running the 400 meters and 200 meters. Hopefully the weather will hold up next weekend and the women’s track team will be able to compete in the Lafayette/Rider Winter Games.
