Track and field: Two school records fall at Notre Dame

The Butler track and field team continued to break school records with strong performances from its freshmen at the Meyo Invitational, hosted by Notre Dame, over the weekend.

A week after nearly breaking her own school record in the triple jump, freshman Nicole Hudec achieved the feat for the Bulldogs with a leap of 36-08.50.

In the sprints, freshman Kelly Davidson broke her previous school record in the 200-meter dash, finishing with a time of 26.09.

The Butler men were led by freshman Tom Curr, who recorded a second-place finish in the Meyo Mile, the meet’s signature event.

Curr finished the race in 4:00.73 and was the Bulldogs’ top individual performer.

Sophomore Ross Clarke finished the race in sixth place with a time of 4:03.70.

On the women’s side, junior Kirsty Legg led Butler in the same event with a time of 4:41.70—good for fourth place.

Other notable finishes included sophomore Callum Hawkins’ eighth-place finish in the men’s 3,000-meter invitational run and senior Becky Howarth’s seventh-place finish in the women’s version of the same event.

The team will compete again in the Husky Classic in Seattle this coming weekend.
