Second-Place Finishes From Izydorczak, Ralph Highlight Bonnies' Day at Allegany County Classic

HOUGHTON, N.Y. – A pair of second-place finishes – one from Meaghan Ralph in the 400 meter dash and another from Emily Izydorczak in the 800 meters – highlighted competition Tuesday afternoon for the St. Bonaventure women's track team at the Allegany County Classic.

Running in wet and windy conditions, Ralph took her best finish as a Bonnie as the freshman clocked in at 1:04.23. Her time was less than a second off the winning time of 1:03.38 in the 400 meter dash by Kaitlyn Swain of Roberts Wesleyan. She also had a strong showing in the 800 meters by finishing fifth with a time of 2:36.71.

Also in the 400 meter dash, freshmen Sydney Beeman (1:06.66) and Tristen Reid (1:07.01) finished fifth and sixth respectively.

Izydorczak crossed the finish line with a mark of 2:29.57 in the 800 meters to lead a trio of Bonnies in the top five of the event. Rachel Guyer was fourth at 2:34.62, just ahead of Ralph. Three more Bonnies finished seventh through ninth in the event –Beeman (2:39.20), Megan Jennings (2:52.61) and Jenna Cherry (2:52.95).

The Bonnies return to action on Sunday at Nazareth College for the Roc City Invite – an event that has been bumped back a day due to inclement weather in the forecast this weekend.
