Two fieldhouse records from sophomore sprinters led Hanover's track and field at the Anderson Indoor Invitational Saturday in the Kardatzke Wellness Center in Anderson.
Led by the record-setting efforts of Briahna Chambers of Bell, Texas, and Jordan Moseby, of Indianapolis, Hanover's women won the invitational, while the men finished fifth.
Moseby set a fieldhouse record in the 60-meter hurdles in 9.11 seconds, topping the rest of the field by more than half a second. Her time currently ranks 12th in the country.
Chambers tied the fieldhouse record in the 60-meter dash with a school-record 8.09 in the preliminaries.
Chambers was also second in the long jump at 4.67 meters and cruised to a commanding win in the 200-meter dash. Her 27.46 seconds time narrowly missed Angie Lugo's 1998 school record of 27.43.
