The day began with the Pentathlon and freshman, Lindsay Lipa
competing in the event for the third time this season. In the first of five
events, Lipa survived the 60 meter hurdles, clipping two on her way to a 10.31
finish. High jump went better as tied for the fourth highest in the field,
clearing 5' 1.25". After a 26' 7" effort in the shot put, Lindsay jumped 16'
9.75 in the long jump. With plenty of energy left, Lipa ran a seven-second
personal best, finishing the day running 2:24.87 for 800 meters. Her final
score of 3101 was good for eighth, the final All-American spot.
