SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – A sunny, warm day in western Pennsylvania helped provide fast conditions as the St. Bonaventure women's track team turned in 13 PRs Saturday at the Dave Labor Invitational.

The 800 meters saw the Bonnies run three times that will rank in the program's individual top-10 for the event.

Junior Meaghan Ralph ran her personal best time in the 800, logging an effort of 2:34.89. With that run, she moves from seventh to sixth in the program's individual record books. Freshman Amberlee Robertson was just behind, crossing the stripe in 2:35.03 with another PR - good enough to move from ninth to seventh as she bested her previous PR by seven seconds. Sophomore Samantha Henry also PR'ed with another top 10 program time of 2:36.01.

For the 1500, Henry bettered her previous PR by over eight seconds with a time that ranks seventh in program individual history - 5:12.71. Robertson was just behind with her fastest collegiate time in the event as well, moving to eighth in program history with a run of 5:14.02. Sydney Beeman led the way for the Bonnies in the 1500 with her time of 5:10.13.

Freshman Theresa Dristle was at the front of the pack in the 5000 meters, finishing fourth with a time of 19:55.58.

Bona is back in action next Tuesday, April 16 at the Alfred Invite.
