Great day for the Lions as they compete in Franklin invite

Location: Franklin, IN (Franklin College)

The Lions performed well in this past weekend's competition.  In the middle of their outdoor season, these Lions are beginning to see their times drop.  As the season continues the Lions will continue to strive to get their times down.  The Lions were able to get a good look at some of their conference competitors that they will face in the conference meet.  There were many athletes that were able to place high and score points for Mount St. Joseph.  Emma Roth (Cincinnati, OH/ Lakota West) was able to run a 2:30 in the 800 meter run to finish third and score 3 points for her team.  Kiersten Lux (Waldron, IN/ Waldron) showed up in a huge way for her team as she was able to place second in the Shotput, Discus, and Hammer throw.  Her performance was good enough to score a total of 12 points to add to her team's total.  Andi Meyer (Ft. Loramie, OH/ Ft. Loramie) was also able to make an impact.  In the High Jump Andi Meyer finished first after clearing 1.56 meters.  She also won the Women's Pole vault after clearing 3.17 meters.  She scored a total of 12 points after winning both of her events.    

The Lions finished third out of the four teams with a final team score of 56 points.
