(Allendale, Mich.) The Grand Valley State University Holiday Open offered Cornerstone mulit-event specialist, Brittany Green a chance to test her fitness in the five events of the pentathlon. When the meet drew relatively few entries, Green literally raced from one event to the next setting personal bests in four open events and new best score in the pentathlon.

The afternoon opened with the long jump, which the sophomore from Ohio won on her first attempt. Measuring 18' 4 ½", the leap improved on the NAIA National qualifying mark Green posted one week earlier at Saginaw Valley State.

Next, in the shot put, Green's second attempt landed 38' 7 ½" away from the circle, adding 4' 8" to her previous indoor best and good for fifth place.

In the 60 meter hurdles, Brittany took over one-tenth of a second off her best. Placing fourth in the preliminary heats, her time of 9.24 was also under the NAIA provisional qualifying standard of 9.30.

From there, it was a race between the high jump and the 800 meters.  After clearing a personal best, 4' 9 ½" on her first attempt, Green got in two tries at 4' 11 ½" then had to report for the 800 meter run.  Just 2:35.28 later, Green was done for the day. Her time was another PR by nearly 4 seconds.

The combined point value from each event totaled a pentathlon score of 3440, an improvement of 330 from her freshman year and well above the NAIA qualifying standard.

Two other Golden Eagles competed in the meet. Liz Baller and Kaylee Carew raced the 3000 meters for the second time this season.  After covering the opening mile together in 5:56, Carew pulled away in the second half of the race taking fifth in 11:08.19 with Baller sixth in 11:20.53.

Cornerstone competes next at Central Michigan University on January 11th.
