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.
