In the opening meet of the 2010-11 indoor season, Wesleyan had three first-place efforts in the four-team affair Sat., Dec. 4 in Middletown, the Wesleyan Invitational I.  Participating in the meet with Wesleyan was Conn. College, Medgar Evers and York (NY).  Coming through with a title in the 400m dash by more than five seconds was Lia Monti '13 (middle photo) with a time of 1:04.41.  Wesleyan's other two wins came in field events as Ashley Swan '13 (right side photo) won the weight throw with a toss of 36-3 3/4 and Sierra Livious '14 captured the shot put with a 33-0 3/4 effort.  She also placed second in the 200m dash and joined Monti, Yatta Zoker '14 and Isabel Stern '14 for a second-place finish in the 4x400m relay. 

The team was back in action Sat., Jan. 8 when a group of Cardinals headed to Army to take part in the Crowell Open.  There, Monti was the top Cardinal finisher, placing fifth in the 400m (1:06.10).  Also grabbing a top-eight placing was Isabel Stern '14 as she took seventh in the 60m hurdles (:10.09).

Next up for the team is another home event, the Wesleyan Invitational II Sat., Jan. 15.
