Chappell-Dick Cruises By Own School Record

Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) sent three athletes to Saturday’s Mason Spring Invitational, hosted by NCAA Division-I George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.  The meet, fittingly loaded with D-I athletes, was a final tune-up for the trio for next week’s Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championships.

Both of Eastern Mennonite’s women ran in the 800m, and freshman Hannah Chappell-Dick (Bluffton, OH/Bluffton) destroyed her own school record and crossed with the top D-III time at the meet.  She flashed across the line in 2:14.34, shaving more than three seconds off her previous record of 2:17.47.

Chafin Brumfield (Harrisonburg, Va./Spotswood) had a solid showing in the same event, clocking a time of 2:23.63.

Men’s jumper Michael Allen (Fork Union, Va./Louisa County) was limited by a foot injury and landed at 12.80m in the triple jump.

The Old Dominion Athletic Conference Outdoor Championships are this coming Friday and Saturday, hosted by Washington and Lee in Lexington, Va.
