Hanover’s women’s track & field won five events and took first-place overall while the men saw a 25-year-old record shattered in an impressive overall performance at the DePauw Invitational in Greencastle on Saturday.

Erin Browning, a sophomore from Greensburg, won two events to lead the Hanover women. Browning took the weight throw with a distance of 15.06 meters and the shot put at 11.62 meters, the latter throw marking the second-best in school history.

Alexis Harsh, a freshman from North Vernon, won the long jump at 5.08 meters, Teal Burnett, a senior from Marshall, Illinois, won the 400-meter dash in 1:03.23 and Caitlyn Naghdi, a junior from Carmel, won the 5000-meter run in 19:55.73 to cap Hanover’s wins.

Hanover’s lone win on the men’s side came in record-breaking fashion when the quartet of Jacob Hedrick, Hayden Veach, Reece Hunter and Cooper Hanson raced to victory in the distance medley relay in 10:30.45. That mark shattered the previous best by 15 seconds set in 1994.

Hanover scored 124.7 points in the women’s meet to hold off Trine (114.5) and Rose-Hulman (108.2) to claim the title. The men scored 59 points to place fifth behind winner Wabash (146) and runner-up Rose-Hulman (128.5).
