The Crusaders competed in the Moravian Invitational on Saturday, their final competition before the Landmark Conference meet.
Junior thrower Ken Schetroma finished ninth in the hammer throw with a distance of 43.72 meters and sophomore thrower Seth Landgraf came in 20th with a throw of 39.53 meters. Schetroma also took 12th in the shot put with a 14.59-meter heave, and Dan Smith was close behind in 17th place with his toss of 12.79 meters.
Junior thrower Jessica Ranck finished in 17th in the hammer throw with a distance of 38.43 meters, a personal best. Ranck was the top-finishing Crusader in the event. In the shot put freshman thrower Cameron Weaver's 11.3-meter toss placed her in 10th overall to lead the Crusaders.
"Last weekend was a difficult one due to the weather," Schetroma said regarding the meet. "We haven't competed in conditions like that all season. I don't think that this past weekend gave us a true gauge on how we're going to compete this weekend."
Senior Ian Quinlan was Susquehanna's top finisher for the 1,500 with his time of 4 minutes, 6.06 seconds in 12th place. Senior Dan Martin finished in 17th with a time of 4:09.24. In the 800, sophomore Brendon Albaugh took eighth in 1:56.32, followed by senior Joe Zamadics in 11th place.
Freshman jumper Brian Etz finished 12th in the long jump and added a 16th-place finish in the 110 hurdle with a time of 17.02. Senior jumper Chad Shultz competed in the high jump with a career-best jump of 1.76 and also finished the 200 with a time of 23.58.
Freshman Jared Minori fired the javelin to a seventh-place finish, registering a distance of 57.93 meters.
Sophomore vaulter Julie Scales took ninth in the pole vault with a personal-best of 3.15 meters. Freshman Jonaida Williams and senior Kristin Stam competed in the long jump with jumps of 4.95 and 4.82 meters, respectively.
In the triple jump, Stam jumped to a personal-best height of 10.95 meters, and Williams leaped to a distance of 10.60 meters to finish back-to-back in fifth and sixth places.
"Excluding this past weekend, I think we have had a solid year as a team," Schetroma said. "We have many outstanding performances both on the track and in the field. I honestly believe that we have proved ourselves throughout the season and shown the other teams in the conference that we going to be ready to give everyone a run for their money."
The Crusaders will compete this weekend in the conference championships hosted by Moravian.
